The biggest causes of dissatisfaction in the current analysis of China’s mega trends is the lack of serious economic research effort. This has resulted in confusion and misunderstanding about the development and direction of mega trends and blind acceptance of these trends. This all leads to potentially erroneous business and policy decisions and reactions to the emergence of China. This new book examines the structural forces behind mega trends in China, refuting conventional wisdom and demystifying media and market hype. It aims to bridge the gap between the East and the West, and academic and market studies of China by examining China’s macroeconomic mega trends through the lens of rigorous economic research and evidence and taking a critical approach to question and assess the evolution of these mega trends. Coverage of China’s mega trends in this book is not meant to be exhaustive, as new trends will emerge over time and the existing trends will keep on evolving.

Chi Lo is a senior economist with a global bank based in Hong Kong, and is the author of ten books on Chinese and Asian economic development and markets. He was listed on the International Who’s Who Professionals in 2000 and 2011, and served as senior economist and head of research for international banks and regulatory bodies. Before working in Asia, Chi was an economic advisor to the Canada Deposit Insurance Corporation in Canada, a crown agency under the Canadian Treasury. He has published research work in international periodicals and newspapers, and has appeared as a commentator on international media and speaker at international seminars, such as the World Economic Forum, Asian Development Bank, and House of Lords of the British Parliament. He has taught economics and finance courses at various universities in Hong Kong, and has spoken frequently at university finance courses and professional seminars in North America, Europe and Asia. Chi did his economics graduate work at the London School of Economics and Political Science (LSE) in England and the University of British Columbia (UBC) in Canada.
Bridging East and West perspectives and academic and market studies, Lo examines China's macroeconomic mega trends using vigorous research and evidence. His analysis is critical rather than descriptive, he says, and does not take trends for granted but assesses their evolution. Among his topics are future growth: more than a binary outcome, demographics: what else before hitting the wall, the "debt bomb" and de-leveraging dilemma, the belt and road strategic plan, and the future of the Renminbi.
