Sources of Chinese Economic Growth, 1978-1996


'This work is rich in both empirical and theoretical material. Strongly recommended for students of economic development, comparative economic systems, and the Chinese economy.' -ChoiceThis book offers a detailed, comprehensive, and relatively non-technical overview of how and why the Chinese economy grew after 1978. It argues that the Chinese government played a very positive role in the process. By contrast, foreign trade and foreign investment were less important than usually thought. The book also concludes that China benefited from some of the policies adopted by Mao in the 1960s and 1970s.
