Yes, this is a silly paranoid hypothesis

Is it possible that the World Bank is re-evaluating China's PPP GDP measure downwards because if it didn't, in a few years China's GDP would be larger than the United States?

Given that the new numbers seem to make no sense, according to Dean Baker, it's certainly worth exploring other explanations.

Well, me, I'll believe Dean Baker over the World Bank any day...And I don't think you are paranoid at all.
