    Has the Eurozone found its mojo?
    With the European economy making its surprising recovery, investors may find themselves wondering if the European Central Bank's aggressive quantitative easing programme was as necessary as it once appeared.

    Popular film highlights China's smog crisis, growth dilemma

    Business Spectator
    Investigative reporter Chai Jing has produced a stunning documentary on China's smog problem that could become a turning point for the environmental movement in the East Asian nation. The popular documentary has already been viewed 126 million times on Tencent’s site alone and it has galvanised national attention. Chai’s film reveals the power of the big three oil companies that threaten to shut down supplies if government agencies impinge on their turf, leaving environmental authorities looking powerless. China faces a dilemma between GDP and jobs growth on the one hand, and the environment on the other. But as Alibaba founder Jack Ma says, what is the point of having economic growth when you can no longer see blue sky?

    US manufacturing expands at slowest pace since January '13:

    The manufacturing sector continues to grow in the world's largest economy, but we have witnessed a quick slowdown in recent months. The ISM manufacturing index declined to 52.9 last month - as expected by consensus (53) - from 53.5 in January and a high of 58.1 in August of last year. The deceleration has been particularly pronounced in the last three months with the index still as high as 57.6 in November.

    Among the sub-indices new orders slowed somewhat to 52.5 from 52.9 while production printed 53.7, down from 56.5. The employment component also slowed quite a bit to 51.4 from 54.1, interesting ahead of Friday's employment report. Manufacturing employment has averaged 31,000 per month in Nov-Jan.

    Overall a report without major surprises.

    Why China's prospects might be a lot brighter

    Bloomberg
    It's something of a truism to view a slowdown in China as inevitable given the belief that slowdown inevitably follows a period of strong, sustained growth and by that model, China certainly fits the bill. But, says Mark Buchanan, the linkage is at its strongest when the economies in question are at intermediate to high levels of complexity. It becomes far more difficult to make that case with less-developed nations which fall into an essentially different regime of economic dynamics, according to the work of a group of physicists led by Matthieu Cristelli. That has big implications for China certainly, and most probably India, and is grounds for some more optimism for the future of these two behemoths.
