Article Pass-along

Two excellent articles on China from other sites.

First, China in the context of the world’s melt down–it’s not only not going to save the world, it’s probably going to make it worse. This is a great piece–if you don’t read any of the others, read this.

Second, Guangdong province in the context of the current political and economic directives from Beijing–basically, “Beijing is far away and we have our own problems to worry about.”

And a couple other pieces from The Economist.  First, China’s future.  And then the paradox of staffing shortages in a era of factory closings.
