Hopes For Global Growth Fade As China Data Disappoints Again

China once again misses consensus estimates on three of their latest data releases today, showing weakness in retail sales, industrial production, fixed asset investment, as well as a record high 20% youth unemployment rate.

Given the deluge of macro data out of China so far this month, Weston Nakamura organizes and presents a clear, full picture of where China currently stands regarding the state of the domestic consumer, industrial manufacturing, and loans, credit and investments - the results of which point to an economy unable to regain traction following the sudden lifting of their strict COVID policies.

In light of the TOPIX index hitting a new 33-year "bubble-level" high, and Japan as the world's best performing equity market globally in 2023, Weston also discusses the bear case for the Japan equity outperformance as seen by domestic Japanese institutional investors.
