Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
I semi-snarked, so I'll do it again.

Is this cyclical effects at work?

Setser certainly presents it as so, basically we're following the same path in increasing imports from China that the US did, just later on. Sounds a lot like the delayed effect where IT investment started later in Europe and so the "productivity gains of IT" came through later than the US too.
