BEIJING — China’s economy is in line to overtake the United States to become the world’s largest by the end of 2016, according to a new report from the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD).
The Paris-based think tank on Friday released an in-depth study of China’s economic reforms, laying out a case for China to engage in a renewed push on that front. The OECD based its projections on the assumption that China’s gross domestic product will continue to grow at an average rate of about 8 percent in coming years, including 8.5 percent growth by the end of this year and 8.9 percent next year. That is appreciably faster than the Chinese government’s own predictions of 7 percent average yearly growth.

"It's really hard sometimes. I think I have a reputation for being really tough and aggressive and pushy but I really am a very shy person who wants to be liked, and that's the conflict constantly. There's something that takes hold - I want people to like me, I don't want to be mean - but if I see something that just cries out to be answered, I go for it," says renowned NBC News correspondent Andrea Mitchell.
