I suppose the key test of whether or not current economic growth is sustainable in the long-term will be down to whether or not Government intervention to boost domestic demand in the short term has picked the winners that will ensure growth in the long-term. And we will only know that by studying the indicators over a longer period. Still - it does seem like the Chinese government is gambling on domestic led growth.

Inflation is a problem worldwide, but Food inflation would have a greater impact on the developing markets. For example United States only spends on average 10% of income on food, while a developing country like China spends almost 40%. I'd be watching this space closely going forward.
