China inflation down to 1.8% Y/Y

Chinese inflation, which I haven’t been paying much attention to, is down to a 30-month low at 1.8% year-on-year.

  1. Where’s the hyperinflation?
  2. Chinese economy clearly struggling. Only more bad news for them and everyone else.

I don’t know where it all goes from here.
