Is China’s Economic Miracle Over?

The Big Question is a regular feature in which Project Syndicate commentators provide concise answers to a timely question.

Whether the Chinese economy returns to health after the negative shock of zero-COVID policies is important not only for the country’s consumers and firms and for the global economy.
