Is China's Inflation Peaking?

China just released its regular monthly (and March quarter) data dump, and this article provides a brief update on two key statistics: GDP and CPI (for reasons which I will explain later). First up, a review of the results: Q1 2011 GDP growth came in at 9.7%, compared to consensus 9.4%, and previous 9.8%. Consumer price inflation rose to 5.4% in March, compared to consensus 5.2%, and previous 4.9%. So some very interesting results there.
