Episode Synopsis: Tom Orlik, the Chief Asia Economist from Bloomberg and author of the book "Understanding China's Economic Indicators", joined us in an interesting conversation in analysing China's economy and helped us to understand how reliable the economic indicators are. We start from a primer to how one navigate across the aims of the Chinese government with the economy, from the major government agencies, stock exchanges to the Asian Infrastructure Investment Bank (AIIB). We discussed the recent China equities crash dating back from last July with Tom explaining why the Chinese economy is still growing despite of that. Last but not least, we discussed Tom's book, where he provided insights to how one should read or analyse economic indicators from China and put the whole economic picture of the up and coming largest economy of the world in perspective.
