As a result, there is uneasiness over the trajectory of Chinese commodity consumption, and ultimately commodity prices.
A new multi-client study from Informa Economics IEG, China at a Crossroads:

The study assesses potential policy and macroeconomic outcomes and analyzes their impact on commodity supply/demand, trade and prices over the next 5-10 years.
