Economic Progress

The one chart you should watch, according to this chief economist

A Chinese investor looks at share prices at a securities exchange in Shanghai March 28, 2005. China's shares hit a fresh six-year low on Monday after aviation stocks, including Shanghai Airlines Co. Ltd. dived as worries persisted over potentially higher jet fuel prices. The Shanghai composite index slipped 0.5 percent to end at 1,200.113 points. It had fallen as much as 1.7 percent in the early afternoon to an intraday trough of 1,185.456 - the index's lowest since a mark of 1,164.90 set on May 24, 1999.
