By Peter Boghossian The Washington Post March 20, 2019 9:23:37More than 200,000 people attended the March 6 funeral for Mao Zedong, the late Communist leader who led China from 1949 to 1976.
It was the largest funeral in China for any politician and the first to be held at a Chinese capital in more than a century.
“The fact that we are in the middle of an economic crisis and there is so much turmoil in the economy is making it more difficult for us to find a way to honor Mao,” said Wang Jiefu, a Chinese official who attended the funeral.
“We hope this year we will be able to do it again.”
But this year is different.
China has been trying to improve its economic performance.
It has also become more isolated.
It lost much of its former status as a major player in international finance.
And Beijing is under pressure to find new ways to boost economic growth, which is slowing.
The last time China hosted a major funeral was in 2003.
That was the year of Tiananmen Square, when Beijing killed pro-democracy protesters.
This year, the Communist Party is also under intense pressure.
Its leaders are under fire for the killing of two journalists and the detention of more than 200 people.
It is also grappling with allegations that it has been suppressing dissent and has violated the rights of the LGBT community.
It is not just China that is struggling.
The United States has also seen a slowdown in economic growth in recent years.
And the global economy is not expected to return to the heights of the 1990s, when the global stock market hit record highs.
In the meantime, there is a growing body of research suggesting that the economy could recover faster if China and the world can do more to ease economic tensions.
One study by University of Chicago economist Jeremy Siegel found that countries that have a strong and growing manufacturing sector are better able to respond to economic shocks, such as rising interest rates and a recession.
“The U.S. economy is already at a critical point, but it would be great to see China take more steps to help the U.K. and Germany recover from the crisis,” said Siegel.
A similar analysis by the University of Wisconsin economist Andrew Stavins found that the U,S.
is one of the least likely countries to see a recovery.
The study found that when countries with a strong manufacturing sector recover, they tend to grow faster.
“When there is more and more of a manufacturing base, countries tend to recover faster,” Stavans said.
The same holds true when countries have more people in the labor force, the study found.
A report released last month by the International Monetary Fund said China could achieve an additional annual growth rate of 2.6 percent by the end of 2019 if it and the U., the U
