Bears are making a mistake.

With China's growth slowing, the bears have been quick to flee this still expanding market, but it's a mistake. While China may not put up the crazy high GDP growth of yesteryear, the long-term potential for the country is still enormous. 

The country boasts a powerful combination of rising incomes, longer life expectancy, and a concentration of wealth. An individual born in China in 2009 is expected to spend 38x more in his or her lifetime than an individual born in 1960. That's a powerful fact, and there are ways you can profit from the trend today.

 
This article represents the opinion of the writer, who may disagree with the “official” recommendation position of a Motley Fool premium advisory service. We’re motley! Questioning an investing thesis – even one of our own – helps us all think critically about investing and make decisions that help us become smarter, happier, and richer.
