190239034 – China’s Economy: What Everyone Needs to Know® by Arthur R. Kroeber
190239034 – China’s Economy: What Everyone Needs to Know® is a short introduction to the most astonishing economic development story of the last 30 years. In the 1980s China was impoverished, struggling to escape the political disorder and economic mishandling of the Mao era. Today it is the world’s second biggest economy, trading nation, and the largest in manufacturing, the consumer of 1/2 the world’s steel and coal, the biggest source of international tourists, and one of the most prominent investors in developing countries from southeast Asia to Africa to Latin America.
China’s growth has raised 700 million people out of poverty. It has also created a immense environmental mess, with smog cities and carbon emissions that are causing climate change. Companies make billions of dollars in profits in China each year, but traders around the world convulsion at every gyration of the country’s uncontrollable stock markets. Most surprising of all, its capitalist economy is governed by an authoritarian Communist Party that shows no sign of undoing its grip.
Whether you’re doing business in China, negotiating with its government, or a student trying to traverse the complexities of this fascinating country, this book will tell you everything you need to know about how China works, where it came from and where it’s going.
