The case for a Chinese economic slowdown is pretty incontrovertible at this point.

According to many pundits, the slower growth means that, like the Soviet Union and Japan before it, China doesnt threaten to supplant the US as the worlds biggest economy.

Analysts predicted that the Soviet economy would soon surpass the American economy in the 1960s, that Japans would do the same in the 1980s and that the United States had achieved a new era of perpetual speedy growth in the late 1990s. None of those predictions has come to pass.
