Sun Bin has a very interesting series of maps on World Population and GDP. Dave Altig at MacroBlog picks up on one of the maps, the sevices sector share as a % of GDP. Since one mark of economic development is the services share this is indeed revealing. As Dave points out China has clearly be come a significant outlier among would-be developed economies in its reliance on manufacturing share. This is unbalanced growth, and China needs to address this problem. Even after this weeks data revisions China is still a very services-light economy. What I found most surprising about the graph is the extent of services development in Brazil, Chile and Argentina. Are there some lessons for India from what has been happening in China. Raising GDP per capita at the end of the day also means moving up (not down) the value chain.
