About me

hedcut2I’m the China research director for Gavekal Dragonomics, an independent economic research firm with offices in Hong Kong and Beijing.

My day job is to write and talk about the Chinese economy, and manage a team of analysts. The research we produce is available on our website, though access is restricted to clients of our firm.

From 2015-17 I was a senior nonresident fellow at the Paulson Institute, the Chicago-based think tank. I also used to be a reporter for The Wall Street Journal; more about my professional background is at my LinkedIn profile.

This blog features occasional musings on various topics and some of the writing I do for a general audience. It is wholly personal and does not represent my employer in any way.
