Always worth keeping up with what's going on in China. And this little gem puts us in the picture a little by considering how the state continues to keep a firm grip on the economy. Dynamic as there economy may be in terms of investment flows and liberalised goods and labour markets, the state still stand strong in the East, and this looks likely to continue into the immediate future.

Good info about the use and limitations of measures of development - PPP

Valorie Morgan's curator insight, February 4, 2014 9:28 AM

The graphs are very explanatory, easy to understand and very accurate. I like how this source does not leave out any details and includes a large list of countries and where they are at according to HDI. Sometimes i tend to learn things in a more visual way and this helped me understand HDI a little bit more.

Interesting to see how Lativia has recovered - there's also a clip about why they still want to join the Euro - skim down the article to near the end to find out why they have recovered so quickly.  NB. AUSTERITY = CUTS TO THE PUBLIC SECTOR and LESS SPENDING so that they can pay back their debts.
