In approximately two decades China has transformed from a stagnant socialist economy to one that is vibrant and largely market-oriented. Given China's size, rapid economic growth, and her increasing importance as an economic and political power, the country's growth and development have aroused major interest among academics and policymakers worldwide. Written by a distinguished group of economists, this volume offers insight and in-depth analysis of a wide range of issues related to China's growth and development, from the role of higher education in the country's economic growth, to socioeconomic issues such as stock market manipulation and rural-urban migration. The contributors are established scholars in the field and their research methodologies are at the frontier of modern analytical economics, including economic dynamics and computable general equilibrium analysis. The volume will be of interest to students and researchers in the areas of Chinese economic studies, finance and international economics, international business, and transitional economy.
