Mary Lovely was interviewed for the PolitiFact article "Trump wrongly claims China is having its ‘worst year in 57 years’." Lovely says China’s economic slump is not particularly shocking to those who track economic growth data. "As an economy develops, growth rates come down," she says. "Over the long term, we have seen China’s average growth rate decline, which is what we would expect." 09/17/19
