China Deflation Concerns Spark Influencer Discussions on X Corp

Amidst the global economic landscape, surging inflation continues to loom large over major economies. However, a contrasting narrative emerges as China, the world’s second-largest economy, grapples with contraction in both consumer and producer prices.

This intriguing development has ignited discussions on “Deflation,” echoing through X Corp (X), formerly Twitter Inc, platform during the second week of August, according to the Social Media Analytics Platform of GlobalData, a leading data and analytics company.

Smitarani Tripathy, Social Media Analyst at GlobalData, comments: “Influencer discussions on “X” majorly revolved around the concerns of China tipping into a deflationary spiral. Rooted in an array of factors, predominantly stemming from a languid post-COVID recovery, the narrative encompasses enduring issues. These include turmoil within the real estate sector, governmental efforts to curtail debt, sluggishness in consumer expenditure, and a dip in exports driven by a global demand deceleration.”

Influencers on “X” assert a resolute need for decisive actions to avert the specter of deflation, which casts a cautionary pall over the global economic panorama.

Below are a few of the popular influencer opinions captured by GlobalData’s Social Media Analytics Platform:

1.         Yannis Koutsomitis, Managing Director at Imperial Media:

“China slips into deflation in warning sign for world economy — Tepid consumer demand & rising economic concerns have tipped China into deflation for the first time in two years, adding pressure on Beijing to act more aggressively to avoid an economic malaise.”

2.         Stephen McDonell, China Correspondent at BBC:

“Funny to be in a situation where everyone’s worrying about the price of things actually coming down but that’s exactly what’s happening in #China, as July’s 0.3% YOY reduction in CPI has flamed fears of a period of deflation here caused by a sluggish rebound from the Covid crisis.”

3.         Menaka Doshi, Senior Editor at Bloomberg News:

“China Deflation China’s consumer and producer prices fell together for the first time since 2020. A deflation cycle that could give global central banks some help in fighting inflation in their own countries. But it signals a worsening outlook in the world’s second-largest economy.”

4.         Jessica Amir, Market Strategist at moomoo:

“China needs to hurry up & deliver stimulus. They will. Here are 4 reasons why, with charts; 1- Chinese deflation in both consumer & producer prices occurred in July, amid demand weakness. For the 1st time since 2020. The post-pandemic spending rush is dead. 2- Chinese Imports & Exports YoY fell more than expected, showing confidence is low….”

5.         Zia Haq, Associate Editor at Hindustan Times:

“The bigger worry now is China’s deflation, which has become the first G20 country where prices have shrunk into negative territory year on year. China has a voracious appetite for all kinds of raw materials. This will have a global ripple effect, including on us.” #China Deflation Concerns Spark Influencer Discussions on X Corp
