Chinese GDP just came out.The economy grew 9.1%.

That’s a bit below 9.3% that was apparently the consensus.

Most markets remain fairly quiet.

A few other numbers, via Marketwatch:

  • Retail sales jumped 17.7%.
  • Industrial output grew 13.8%.

We should all wish to have such robust “hard landings.”
