    China’s economy stabilises as consumer spending perks up

    Bloomberg
    China’s economy stabilised as lending and consumer spending perked up late in the June quarter, suggesting the world’s second-largest economy is responding to stepped up government support. Gross domestic product rose 6.7% in the second quarter from a year earlier, compared with 6.6% seen by economists Bloomberg surveyed and in line with the government’s growth target of at least 6.5% for the full year. Industrial output and retail data for June beat estimates, investment slowed, and a separate report from the central bank showed the broadest measure of new lending beat all 29 analyst forecasts.

    India soon to have world's largest tertiary-age population

    The Conversation
    India’s demographic trend will soon see it overtake China as the world’s most populous country. Amit Dasgupta writes that currently, over 50% of India’s population, or around 600 million people, are under 25 years. Within the next five years, India will have the largest tertiary-age population in the world. The middle class – those best able to pay for a quality education – is expected to swell to around 500 million. With GDP growth rates set to cross 8%, the demand for higher education can only grow.

    Is it really an Indian summer?
    India has booked the strongest GDP growth in the world and looking at the country from the outside the data points look extremely appealing. However, inside India it's a different story – not all metrics are rising and many are still left behind.
