Bloomberg has developed a data visualization called China Deal Watch that tracks information about Chinese companies’ acquisitions of foreign companies, which now happens at a higher rate than companies in the United States for the first time. China Deal Watch compares the growth of the United States’ and China’s “new economies”—deals that increase domestic consumption of foreign brands—against their “old economies”—deals related to exporting domestically produced brands, as well as breaks down the deals, from 2006 to 2016, by value, industry, and region. Bloomberg will update China Deal Watch on a weekly basis.
