"This new book, based on an Institute conference in October 2007, takes stock of exchange rate policy in China and identifies the major policy options going forward. Specific proposals presented in the volume address how best to eliminate any misalignment of the renminbi; how best to reduce pressures emanating from the sterilization of large reserve accumulation; how best to make capital flows the ally - not the enemy - of exchange rate policy; and what institutional arrangements and policy guidelines to put in place to reap the greatest benefits from management of China's large foreign exchange reserves."--BOOK JACKET

Markets over Mao : the rise of private business in China by Nicholas R Lardy( )

18 editions published between 2013 and 2015 in English and Chinese and held by 902 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

China's transition to a market economy has propelled its remarkable economic growth since the late 1970s. In this book, Nicholas R. Lardy, one of the world's foremost experts on the Chinese economy, traces the increasing role of market forces and refutes the widely advanced argument that Chinese economic progress rests on the government's control of the economy's 'commanding heights.' In another challenge to conventional wisdom, Lardy finds little evidence that the decade of the leadership of former President Hu Jintao and Premier Wen Jiabao (2003-13) dramatically increased the role and importance of state-owned firms, as many people argue. This book offers powerfully persuasive evidence that the major sources of China's growth in the future will be similarly market rather than state-driven, with private firms providing the major source of economic growth, the sole source of job creation, and the major contributor to China's still growing role as a global trader. Lardy does, however, call on China to deregulate and increase competition in those portions of the economy where state firms remain protected, especially in energy and finance

Economic growth and distribution in China by Nicholas R Lardy( Book )

27 editions published between 1978 and 2011 in English and Chinese and held by 685 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This study maintains that China's system of economic planning tends to mitigate the trade-off between economic growth and equity that has been found to prevail in the early stages of development in most less developed countries. The analysis focuses on the Chinese leadership's attempt to improve economic efficiency by decentralizing economic management without encouraging, as a consequence, increased economic inequality among different regions. By examining the budgetary and planning process, focusing in particular on the fiscal relations between the centre and the far-reaching degree of resource redistribution undertaken by the central government through its control of interprovincial and intersectoral resource transfers. Professor Lardy's analysis highlights the essential features of Chinese economic growth and relates these to the experience of both developing and Soviet-type economies

Foreign trade and economic reform in China, 1978-1990 by Nicholas R Lardy( Book )

19 editions published between 1991 and 2010 in English and held by 643 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This study explores the relationship between China's foreign trade reforms and the domestic economic reforms that undergird China's policy of openness in the 1980s and 1990s. It provides the first comprehensive analysis of how China has emerged since reform began in 1978 as one of the most dynamic trading nations in the world. It examines both the external policy changes, such as the decentralization of trading authority and the devaluation of the domestic currency, and internal economic reforms such as the increased use of markets and prices that underlie that dramatic transformation. The volume argues that China's prereform trade system is best understood as an extreme example of the import substitution trade regime that was common in developing countries in the 1950s. And it explains how trade reforms of the 1980s, particularly the systematic devaluation of the domestic currency and the introduction of limited convertibility, have reduced the bias against exports that was characteristic of the prereform foreign trade and exchange rate system. The volume concludes with an analysis of the sources of China's export growth and outlines further domestic economic reforms that the author believes will be required to sustain China's increasing integration into the world economy. Nicholas Lardy is a professor at the Henry M. Jackson School of International Studies. He is on the editorial board of China Quarterly, China Economic Review and Journal of Comparative Economics and serves as a frequent witness before such Congressional Committees as the Joint Economic Committee and the Senate Foreign Relations Committee. Professor Lardy is the author of several books including Economic Growth and Distribution in China (CUP, 1978)."--Publisher description

Agricultural prices in China by Nicholas R Lardy( Book )

8 editions published between 1983 and 1984 in English and Undetermined and held by 129 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This paper describes the major features of China's agricultural pricing system as they have evolved since l949, but focuses on adjustments in the 1976-82 period. The institutional setting for price policy is described, price-cost relationships are examined and price ratios from key inputs and outputs are defined. A major portion of the paper is devoted to agricultural marketing policy and consumer subsidies. The size of important subsidies is estimated and their distributional and allocative implications are explored. The paper suggests that state interventions in the agricultural pricing system provide disproportionately high benefits to relatively advantaged urban consumers and may restrict adjustment to more economically efficient production patterns in agriculture

China's embrace of globalization by Lee Branstetter( )

11 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 81 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

As China has become an increasingly important part of the global trading system over the past two decades, interest in the country and its international economic policies has increased among international economists who are not China specialists. This paper represents an attempt to provide the international economics community with a succinct summary of the major steps in the evolution of Chinese policy toward international trade and foreign direct investment and their consequences since the late 1970s. In doing so, we draw upon and update a number of more comprehensive book-length treatments of the subject. It is our hope that this paper will prove to be a useful resource for the growing numbers of international economists who are exploring China-related issues, either in the classroom or in their own research
