Contradictory NYT articles about China

  • A news feature about how China’s economic growth has outstripped India
  • A Kristof column talks about the Chinese government’s coverup of an AIDS crisis in rural areas, set of by a government blood-collection program
  • Ascience story writes about high rates of suicide in the Chinese countryside

The glowing numbers that support the first story do not include the provincial poverty shown in the other stories. This Economist article from earlier this year talks about Enron-sized flaws in the Chinese economic growth numbers.
