This quarter’s data show that China is avoiding this

The consumer inflation rate was 1.8 percent year-on-year and produce

r prices went up only 0.2 percent. A standard rule of thumb used by central bankers wor

ldwide is that the inflation rate should be targeted at about 2 percent per year

. This rule is actually built in to the mandate of the European Central Bank. So, the stable monetary policy of the Peop

le’s Bank of China, the nation’s central bank, is working.

The March unemployment rate in urban areas was 5.

2 percent, slightly below the level last year. Most economists define “full employ

ment” as anything below 6 percent, so we are not seeing significant pro

blematic unemployment even during a period of major economic transformation.

People’s tastes are more highly developed,” Jiang says

 “We just want to give people the same feeling watching them on digital devices today as they had on small TV screens years ago.”

More than 300 TV series have been restored since November, and Pei says all their da

ta has gradually helped to build up a database, which will further improve the algorithms.

In March, the restored edition of 2003’s Legend of the Dragonslayer Sword was released online through Youku. Unexpected

ly, it soon climbed into the top 10 list of most-viewed drama series on the platform, with all the others being new productions.

Jiang points out that many adaptations of old classics are now being made following the rise of online streaming media platforms.

“But they are often heavily criticized,” he says. “I don’t know whether it is because the performances are so poor. However, if we c

an make the original productions look just like new ones through restoration, people can at least have more choice.”
