Stephen Kirchner points to an excellent recent article in the FT on Chinese growth. He notes: bq. Huang also questions the all-pervasive “Made in China” label. He suggests that “Processed in China” is a more accurate characterisation, as well as having different connotations (“institutional-economics”:http://www.institutional-economics.com/) In fact, the ASEAN secretariat claims that 55 percent of China’s exports and more than 40 percent of its imports are ‘processing’ trade.
