China slows...

An overview from the WSJ:

China's Communist Party promised to transform people's lives after decades of chaos. Higher living standards underpin the party’s rule, making limits on personal freedoms worthwhile for many. As the economy slows, that social compact is fraying.
There's a certain amount of nervousness, fear but also optimism and hope as to what comes next.
