China Economic Prespectives 2012 and Beyond



•In 2012, as the Chinese government moves from aggressive cyclical tightening to a more normalized overall economic policy, some of the cyclical stresses will be alleviated—helping to reduce the risk of the economy spiraling into a hard landing.

•China faces a number of challenges with its economy, including rebalancing the economy's growth away from investment and exports and more towards domestic consumption. China also needs to focus on improving support for private enterprises and on phasing out the dominance of state-owned enterprises (SOEs).

•A common misconception is that investment and consumption are competing agendas. In fact, a certain level of investment helps to stimulate and support consumption in the longer run. An example of this is social housing construction, which is a form of investment and an essential social safety net for many Chinese consumers.

•China's mass market consumers, approximately 400-500 million people in number, are crucial to the government's goal of increasing domestic consumption. This group has vast untapped spending potential. Social safety nets such as social housing, health care, unemployment benefits, and education that are provided to these consumers are intended to help them feel comfortable spending more and saving less.

•For China's economy to maintain a relatively high pace of growth over the next decade, it is important that gains in productivity are achieved. Studies indicate that a significant gain in economic productivity becomes possible when workers relocate from rural to urban areas. China's objective, therefore, is to move approximately 200 million rural residents to urban centers over the next 10-20 years, a feat that requires significant planning and investment   http://www.goldmansachs.com/our-thinking/view-from/a-view-from-china/index.html http://www.goldmansachs.com/index.html

Abdel Baset al-Megrahi Libyan convicted in Lockerbie bombing is dead



TRIPOLI, Libya—Abdel Baset al-Megrahi, a former Libyan intelligence officer who was the only person ever convicted in the 1988 Lockerbie bombing, died at home in Tripoli Sunday, nearly three years after he was released from a Scottish prison to the outrage of the relatives of the attack's 270 victims. He was 60.
Scotland released al-Megrahi on Aug. 20, 2009, on compassionate grounds to let him return home to die after he was diagnosed with prostate cancer. At the time, doctors predicted he had only three months to live.
Anger over the release was further stoked by the hero's welcome he received on his arrival in Libya -- and by subsequent allegations that London had sought his release to preserve business interests in the oil-rich North African nation, strongly denied by the British and Scottish governments.
Al-Megrahi insisted he was innocent, but he kept a strict silence after his release, living in the family villa surrounded by high walls in a posh Tripoli neighborhood, mostly bedridden or taking a few steps with a cane. Libyan authorities sealed him off from public access. When the one-year anniversary of his release passed, some who visited him said al-Megrahi bitterly mused that the world was rooting for him to die.

His son, Khaled al-Megrahi, confirmed that he died in Tripoli in a telephone interview but hung up before giving more details.
Saad Nasser al-Megrahi, a relative and a member of the ruling National Transitional Council, said al-Megrahi's health had seriously deteriorated in recent days and he died of cancer-related complications.
Al-Megrahi passed away at his Tripoli home on Sunday morning, according to another NTC member, Moussa al-Kouni.
To the end, al-Megrahi insisted he had nothing to do with the bombing, which killed 270 people, most of them Americans.
