Matthew Crabbe is co-founder of research company Access Asia, where he worked exhaustively on trying to make sense of the myriad contradictions in statistics on the consumer markets in China. He has conducted detailed analysis on China’s retail sales for many years, working to highlight how China’s official retail figures do not reflect the real size of the country’s domestic consumer economy. He is the co-author of two books and has written hundreds of reports on China’s consumer markets over two decades.
