    Default Chinese Economic Collapse

    Coronavirus: China’s economy suffers dramatic collapse in January,
    February in warning to rest of world


    South China Morning Post


    The coronavirus’ impact on China’s economy was made plain in new numbers released on Monday, which showed a dramatic collapse across the board.

    Amid a widespread shutdown of manufacturing operations, industrial production – a measure of manufacturing, mining and utilities activity –
    declined by 13.5 per cent over the first two months of the year, combined data for January and February showed.


    This was the first decline on record, although ordinarily the data is released monthly.
    But the numbers were well below expectations of a 3.0 per cent decline.


    Retail sales, a key metric of consumption in the world’s second largest economy, fell by 20.5 per cent,
    again the first decline on record. This was well below the median forecast of a group of analysts,
    conducted by Bloomberg, which predicted a 4.0 per cent contraction.
