    So pet peeve - countries are an it, not a they. Even bigger peeve than "revert."

    I figured it was well known and I know a lot of people suspect China has been fudging her GDP numbers. How to measure the amount of fudging is the real trick.

    Q1 - Do China and Russia publish Trumpian economic data?

    Q2 - Do bears defecate in the woods?

    You can edit titles. Now I no longer have to wait for George K to correct my spelling of Pina colada or whatever.
