Beginning in 1980 when China entered the global market, it experienced remarkable growth in terms of GDP and net output. Much of its growth is attributed to its large amount of exports, particularly within the manufacturing industry. As a result, its GDP per capita increased significantly and the country as a whole became considerably wealthier. More recently, however, demographic changes and increased wealth inequality are hindering its growth. Between 2008 and 2015, the World Bank estimates GDP growth decreased from 9.623% to 6.9%. While its growth remains quite strong in comparison to other developing economies within its echelon (BRIC countries), its increasingly stagnant growth evokes concern for the future of its economy and prospects.
Since the market orientated economic reforms were introduced in 1978 (Khan, Hu (1997, P103) China’s economy has seen a 10% increase in Gross Domestic Product (GDP) Per year (Vincellete, Manoel,
Nowadays, China has become the second largest economy in the world. The GDP (gross domestic product) of china was growing at 9.7% per year in average since 1978, which the year of Chinese “open door” politic founded. China also has become the biggest producer and consumer in many key agricultural and industrial markets and the largest FDI recipient among the developing countries. The performance of china in developing of economy is called “china’s economic miracle”, which be studied by many economists. However, there are also bad results with the development of economy in china such as environment disruption, corruption and
China has reached a milestone in terms of achieving its centenarian goal of making China a prosperous nation once again. One of the ways that it has done this is by having steady economic growth even in the midst of an economic crisis. Not only has China’s economy grown, but its standard of living has also improved, it has achieved this by spending 70 percent of its fiscal revenue towards improving people’s standard of living. China has also pushed more anti-corruption reforms and has made efforts towards widening its economy by setting up freer trade.
The rise in China from a poor, stagnant country to a major economic power within a time span of twenty-eight years is often described by analysts as one of the greatest success stories in these present times. With China receiving an increase in the amount of trade business from many countries around the world, they may soon be a major competitor to surpass the U.S. China became the second largest economy, last year, overtaking Japan which had held that position since 1968 (Gallup). China could become the world’s largest economy in decades.
Throughout time, many countries have needed to implement some sort of economic reform in order to strengthen their economy so that they can be more of a power on the world stage and to stabilize their country. The Chinese reforms were long in the making, an unfolding process that had spanned most of the 20th century and, unlike other countries such as Russia who were trying to do the same thing but whom eventually failed, China prospered, and increased its economy greatly. China has had the fastest growing economy in the world for the past two decades, with an annual growth rate of approximately 10 percent since the economic reforms in 1979, and now has the second largest GDP in the world, second only to the USA. Starting in 1979 they
With a gross domestic product (GDP) calculated at the equivalent of $11.06 trillion and an average growth rate of 1.84 percent, China has the potential to surpass the United States' economy by the year 2030 (citation 1). China's rapid GDP growth is caused mainly by state investment, high exportation, and successes with e-commerce (citation 2). However, China was not always a country eager to open its doors to economic opportunity. Instead, the government strove to maintain self-dependency and to limit influence from other countries. Through the decades of isolation, many countries attempted to gain trade relations with China. These attempts usually were unsuccessful. It wasn't until the late twentieth century until China began forming the economic
The Chinese economy is one of the biggest economies in the world. It is also the fastest growing economy in the world, with a current growth rate of 7.8%. The Chinese economy has multiple strategies to help promote the economic growth. One of which being, China investing heavily into education. Another strategy is attracting Foreign Direct Investors. Finally, one last strategy is China and their memberships in free trade agreements. Through these strategies China gained this high rate of growth and thrive to maintain it.
China is a growing country; its population is about 1.4 billion, and as of 2014, the Chinese economy is the world’s second largest (in terms of nominal GDP,) totaling approximately US$10.380 trillion, with a growth rate of 7.4%, and the GDP per capita is US$3,619.4. From last century to this century, China has had significant improvements in their economic development. China had been in three major crises during the last century: the 20th century. The Fall of Qing Dynasty, World War II, and Civil War in China, all of them struck China in a destructive way. From the end of the 20th century, China was in a fast-developing mode.
Wing Thye Woo, author of “The Real Reasons For China’s Growth,” believes China’s economic growth could be due to privatization of the economy through experimentation that eventually creates a market reform. “This economic experimentation entails the privatization of most of the state-owned sector, which would interim reduce legal discrimination faced by non- state and non-collective forms of ownership. Implies that this privatization would eventually produce a market economy integrated in the internal division of labor and would increase China’s economic opening to the rest of
The author examines the proposition by Larry Summers, the United States Treasury Secretary, on the economic approach presented by China and India in regard to the next decade. Larry Summers observes that there is no certain growth in China, thus he urges people to deviate from the reliance on the predictions of sudden growth in Communist China, using what they term as Asiaphoria (WSJ). The most significant and acknowledged fact on cross national growth is the regression of data in relation to the mean. The authors argue that the evidence of continuous national growth in a period of a decade does not present a guarantee for continued growth. On the contrary, quick national growth has been noted to lead to a slump in the rate of economic growth.
Over the last few decades while China’s population growth rate has decreased, its GDP has increased. “China’s GDP per capita for the period 1952 to 2008 grew at an average annual rate of 5.58%.” (Yao) Furthermore, during the same time
The successes are named as South Korea, Japan, and Taiwan. Malaysia and Thailand are considered to be moderately performing, but lagging behind. Finally, he classifies the Philippines and Indonesia as failures. The final section of the book is solely dedicated to China as it presents a unique case. China has developmental characteristics that are similar to both the successful countries of Northeast Asia as well as the poorer Southeastern Asian countries. China has made great progresses and overcome great disasters. It has worked closely alongside the World Bank and even receives technical support from it when needed. But not without paranoia, which has actually caused China to prosper. Unlike the northeastern countries, Chinese peasants do not own their own land as it is collectively owned and is not allowed to be sold under law. In modern times, China’s developmental plan is based off of recognizing the past failures associated with state-led growth, while allowing state companies to play an important role in its economy. Also, foreign owned companies play a large role because other countries outsource their labor needs to China because it is much cheaper. Overall, Studwell states that China’s government has set the stage for the enablement of rapid economic development. The author
Although the total size of China’s economy has grown at an astonishing pace, being the second largest economy in the world by now, its real GDP per capita does not tell the same story. China is still quite far behind most developed countries by this measure. The other problem facing both countries now is growing income
From April to June 2005, India’s GDP grew at 8.1 per cent, compared with 7.6 per cent in the same period the year before. More impressively, India is achieving this result with just half of China’s level of domestic investment in new factories and equipment, and only 10 per cent of China’s foreign direct investment…
