PKU - Introduction to Chinese Economy
19 July 2021 – 30 July 2021
Hosted by Peking University
China’s unequalled and unprecedented rapid economic growth and development in recent decades has generated wide interest among the international media, researchers and general public. As well as providing an overview of the rapid process of economic growth and structural transformation in the country in the last 40-70 years (as compared with the rest of the world), the course also aims to explore with the students issues including: why China achieved such rapid progress; what factors were responsible for it; what role the economic reforms and opening up (begun 40 years ago) played; what foundations were laid in the prior period of 1949-78, the first thirty years of the People’s Republic; internationally, what role the new wave of globalization and fast expanding global production networks have played, and what lessons and experiences one may draw for other developing countries (the transferability issue); and, finally, what key challenges may lie ahead for the country.
