A friend who just returned from a visit to China tells us
The Indian Economy Blog site wasn’t accessible in China.
Oddly enough the NYT and virtually every Indian paper was available. As was the WSJ and the FT. I tried the IEB site repeatedly along with BBC – which I knew was persona non grata – with no joy.
This brings up two questions
1) Is my friend’s experience w/ IEB in China the norm? Data points anyone…
2) And the more baffling question: if indeed IEB’s not accessible in China, what gives? Are we caught in some sort of blanket block? If so, how come the WSJ/ FT/ NYT/ all Indian newspapers are accessible?
