Our Comment

"Having worked at Lombard Street Research for sixteen years, including a four year stint in Hong Kong overseeing the firm's Asian expansion, Diana is one of Europe's leading experts on the global economy and more specifically, China. Diana was one of the first China watchers to identify and warn of the slowdown in China having identified the fundamental structural problems in the economy and the resulting consequences more clearly than many more experienced observers."
