The end of the year always produces some superb retrospectives and forecasts. I’ve spent a few minutes every day of the last week going through The Economist’s 2016 forecast, and have found it excellent, although suffering from the limitations imposed by a generalist audience.
Those looking for a deeper dive into some of the world’s hot spots would be well-served to pick up the Center for Strategic and International Studies’ (CSIS) 2016 Global Forecast, available for a free download at the CSIS website. Of particular interest to China-watchers is part 5, which includes articles from Christopher Johnson (“rReform Cold, Politics Hot,”) Bonnie Glaser and Matthew Funaiole (“Geopolitical Consequences of China’s Economic Slowdown,”) and the brilliant Scott Kennedy (“Economic Consequences of China’s Economic Slowdown.”)
Add this to your January and Chinese New Year reading list.
