As US, UK, EU Continue to Implode Economies With Lockdowns, China Set for Record Growth in 2021


Many may find that irony here too much to bear. After all, it was only one year ago that the World Health Organization (WHO), backed by the global mainstream media, began stoking a global panic over the emergence of COVID-19 in Wuhan, China. Now, a year later, as Western countries languish in a self-induced collapse, China’s economy is not only bouncing back – it is booming, and set to expand even faster than it had in previous years prior to the alleged ‘global pandemic.’

While U.S. state governors like New York, New Jersey, Illinois and California, and governments in the UK and EU – all continue to spread fear and paranoia through their media partners while systematically dismantling their own economies and taking on record levels of public debt – all in order remain in ‘lockdown,’ China quietly moved on from it’s dramatic mitigation policies seen early on in the crisis.

This paradigm shift may come as a shock to most hapless Western readers, many of whom thought that China has been doing the same authoritarian policies which Western ‘democracies’ are still locked into. While China does have some strict bio surveillance measures in place in certain regions, the country as a whole has returned to ‘normal’ months ago. As a result, they are now reaping the benefits – while the West continues on its economic and democratic free-fall.

Interestingly, in the following report, the Washington Post is quick to commend the Chinese Communist Party for its “containment success” and its “global leadership,” presumably for being the first country to impose medieval lockdowns to supposedly ‘stop the spread’ of coronavirus in the spring of 2020.

More and more in the West, so-called ‘thought leaders’ are musing about the possibility that democracies are on the way out, and that the West should instead emulate China’s state-run economic and social engineering model – opting for the compromise of ‘soft authoritarianism,’ and ‘semi-democracy.’

Why would Western governments intentionally destroy their economies? Is this a pretext for a new ‘global economic reset‘? If so, will they end up playing second fiddle to China?

Washington Post reports….

Economic data published Monday showed that China logged 2.3 percent growth for 2020, becoming the only major economy that grew during a year when the virus exacted a devastating global toll. As other major nations and geopolitical competitors, from the United States to Europe to India to Japan, struggle to beat back a winter wave, China’s containment success has buoyed its economy and the ruling Communist Party’s claims to global leadership in the post-pandemic world.

In a sign of how quickly China has managed a turnaround, the National Statistics Bureau said that its gross domestic product rose 6.5 percent during the fourth quarter of 2020, exceeding the 6 percent pace at the end of 2019, before the coronavirus took hold. China’s GDP surpassed a milestone in 2020, topping 100 trillion yuan, or about $15 trillion.

“In an extraordinary year, China’s economy was able to record an extraordinary accomplishment,” Ning Jizhe, head of the statistics bureau, told reporters. “It’s a performance that is satisfactory to the people, watched by the world, and can be recorded in the annals of history.”
