CHINA, IN THE MIDDLE
China! A ten day visit to Beijing during the last two weeks of September offered a limited, but expanded perspective on the Chinese economic environment as it relates to investment. Although Reed (my husband) and I studied before we went, our first time visit was like drinking from a fire hose. We talked to ordinary people, to economists associated with Tsinghua University and the St. Louis Federal Reserve Bank, to educators and professionals associated with the US Embassy, the Arkansas Economic Development Commission’s Beijing office, the Chinese Ministry of Education, and Renda Fuzhong (RDFZ), the High School Affiliated to Renmin University of China. Of course visits to the historical cultural sites gives “old” a whole new meaning. Three observations stand out: Economics, Education and Demographics.
