The New York Times Magazine picked up research by Bart Los, Marcel Timmer and Gaaitzen de Vries: "Last year, economists at the University of Groningen, in the Netherlands, said that by their very rough estimates total foreign demand for Chinese goods may have led to the creation of as many as 70 million jobs in China in the five years after China joined the W.T.O."

The paper that included this result was published last year in the Journal of Comparative Economics
