Will This Be The China Century? - by Jerry Jasinowski China reported its economy grew "only" 7.3 percent in the third quarter, below the projected 7.5 percent. If China fails to meet its target for the year, it will be the first time since 1998. China's long-term growth prospects seem weaker still. The Conference Board sees its growth slowing to an average of 5.5 percent from 2015 to 2019, and possibly lower still after that, tho ...
