comes to this data right now. from themeone conference board saying they think the economy could fall by 4%. olm: most of the time the skeptics say china is puffing up the numbers. some are saying it is quite the reverse, the economy could be even bigger than you thought. rishaad: i haven't heard that for a while. malcolm: its trends -- trends from a two bit economy. factory output, they are moderating, and services are doing pretty well and they may be understated the side of the economy. rishaad: so how big is it, really? what are the implications for the real economy? real economy, that means a few things. china may become the world's biggest economy sooner than has been thought, maybe two to three years sooner.
it also is significant because debt to gdp looks less scary if it is bigger. enda: obviously, the common refrain on china's gdp is to say look at the political targets, no matter what is happening in the real economy growth will come in at the magic number. you have some pretty significant thing saying that china's data is more outdated, they're not capturing -- rishaad: if they had a bigger pie to start with, then it will be exponentially that much bigger. malcolm: it'll will be harder to eat out more growth. the growth that his hearty happened may not be available. eking out the next bit of mental growth -- incremental growth could help. rishaad: you cannot sustain double-digit growth forever.
straighting grows at a line, i'm just saying glib things here at the moment. enda: even if it is not growing at double-digit ace, it is much bigger than it was in 2010. has a slowed,owth it is a bigger economy. rishaa thank you very much. some oft a check and the other stories we're following today. malcolm and i would just talking but china's telecommunications business, they could now be taking their focus towards aerospace. reports that the engine assets will be run together under one entity. the plan is still in the initial stages. they're are looking to develop their own engines. or should i say, commercial jet. a boost from taiwan, the airways 10anning to take the 787

or indeed, alibaba? pavel: apple pay is barely one google wallet started in 2011, but sony has been around since 2004. they use the same technology, which is basically a chip that goes in the back of your phone that likes you -- let's you wave the headset. it was back to 1997 when they first introduced those chips for transit passes. they have sold more than 890 million. they're quite ubiquitous, you can see them in phones, groceries, gas stations, train stations, you get a sense for the phone here. rishaad: ok, but sony is way behind when it comes to smartphones, you mentioned way behind samsung, it is also behind apple. how can they make this a success?
: this is really focusing on asia, specifically southeast asia where smartphone penetration is very low. credit cards and bank cards are also quite a rare, so they are teaming up with local transit authorities like a railway company in jakarta, a city bus in hanoi and are betting that they use the cards to pay for your commute eventually the adoptnce will start to your technology and put the terminals there. rishaad: all right, the thing is, i had a guest is saying yesterday perhaps they will -- a devices is ale space they could get into. pavel: it is certainly an area that sony is looking at. they are still working out some kinks and are aligning their
platform to make it easier for manufacturers to use the technology. what they're proposing is certainly one where your wristband could be used as a wallet. even at a time when it can go , let's say payments the smartphone can act as an office id or a prince card as points card, as well as something else. rishaad: asian economies hitting the brakes. we will discuss why malaysia risks being left behind. ♪
