New Trends of the Chinese Economy is a must-read for government officials, policymakers, business professionals, and interested scholars or students who wish to get a clear idea and well-informed understanding of the new development trends, challenges, and opportunities facing China’s society and economy now and in the future.
Starting with the present significant historical moment when China is on its path toward wealth and power, the author carries out a comprehensive and in-depth analysis of the actual international and domestic circumstances facing China. More importantly, she presents an incisive and trenchant interpretation of all those major pressing and controversial issues about which China is most concerned in light of its unique social and economic conditions and the monumental and breathtaking changes that are taking place in the country. These issues cover both macro- and micro-economic aspects, ranging from GDP and national income to fiscal and monetary policies, from controlling inflation to spurring consumption, from reforming government and streamlining administration to creating a monopoly-free market, from improving the retirement and social welfare system to providing health-care support, from ensuring food safety to promoting resource conservation and environmental protection, and from pursuing industrial development and economic growth to protecting people’s livelihood and well-being.
In the author’s own words, “the purpose of this book is to increase knowledge and to leave a footprint of this generation’s thoughts and considerations at this particular point on the Chinese nation’s glorious road to civilization.”
