A mini round of applause for Mr. Abe

On an adjusted quarter-on-quarter basis, Japan’s GDP growth for the first quarter of 2014 beat China by .18 percentage points. Japan’s GDP growth for the first quarter of 2014 was 5.9 percent, while China had a growth of 5.72%. However, the sharp increase in GDP for Japan was artificially caused by a rush of purchases ahead of the slated April 1st sales tax hike. Lets give Japan a break for the moment, it's been a long time since Japan has beating China in the economic realm.
