Economists are Divided on What’s Next for China

With China’s gross domestic product (GDP) growth falling to its slowest pace in 14 years in 2013, what’s next for the world’s second largest economy?

Economists are divided into two distinct camps: those who see a continued growth deceleration towards 7 percent in 2014, and those who expect a pickup to above 8 percent.

The wide disparity stems from a variety of factors including the extent to which reforms undertaken at the Third Plenum in November will impact economic growth and the degree to which China will benefit from the pickup in global demand.
