The Economy of China BHT130


What would China's revolutionary leader, Mao Zedong, think if he were alive today? Mao's Chinese Communist Party continues to hold a monopoly on political power, and China remains at its core a developing nation. But in other respects, today's China bears little resemblance to the country that emerged under Mao's leadership after World War II and a bitter civil conflict. Most important, today's People's Republic of China is Communist in name only. Rapid economic liberalization has brought capitalism, and unprecedented prosperity, to the world's most populous country. Farmers, once the backbone of China's economy, are taking a backseat to the entrepreneurs who make millions exporting low-cost, sophisticated computer chips and flat-screen televisions to the rest of the world. The sleeping giant, as one prominent economist described it, has awakened, and the rest of the world can no longer ignore its presence and its potential. How did this transformation come about? This book takes an in-depth look at that question and examines the future prospects for China in the global economy. Ages 9 to 12.
