Debating China's exchange rate policy by Morris Goldstein( )

13 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 1,787 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"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

Sustaining China's economic growth after the global financial crisis by Nicholas R Lardy( )

18 editions published in 2012 in English and Chinese and held by 1,342 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The global financial crisis and ensuing economic downturn has raised many questions concerning the future of global economic growth. Prior to the financial crisis, global growth was characterized by growing imbalances, reflected primarily in large trade surpluses in China, Japan, Germany, and the oil exporting countries and rapidly growing deficits, primarily in the United States. The global crisis raises the question of whether the previous growth model of low consumption, high saving countries such as China is obsolete. Although a strong and rapid policy response beginning in the early fall of 2008 made China the first globally significant economy to come off the bottom and begin to grow more rapidly, critics charged that China's recovery was based on the old growth model, relying primarily on burgeoning investment in the short run and the expectation of a revival of expanding net exports once global recovery gained traction. Critics, however, argued that as government-financed investment inevitably tapered off, the likelihood was that global recovery would not be sufficiently strong for China's exports to resume their former role as a major contributor to China's economic expansion. The prospect, in the eyes of these critics, is that China's growth will inevitably falter. This study examines China's response to the global crisis, the prospects for altering the model of economic growth that dominated the first decade of this century, and the implications for the United States and the global economy of successful Chinese rebalancing. On the first it analyzes the strengths and weaknesses of China's stimulus program. On the second it analyzes the nature of origins of the imbalances in China's economy and the array of policy options that the government has to transition to more consumption-driven growth. On the third successful rebalancing would mean that more rapid growth of consumption would offset the drag on growth from a shrinkage of China's external surplus. Successful rebalancing would mean China would no longer be a source of financing for any ongoing US external deficit. From a global perspective China would no longer be a source of the global economic imbalances that contributed to the recent global financial crisis and great recession." --
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 999 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

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

21 editions published between 1991 and 2010 in English and Undetermined and held by 672 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

Chʻen Yün's Strategy for China's development : a non-Maoist alternative by Yun Chen( Book )

17 editions published between 1982 and 2019 in English and held by 357 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Originally published in 1983. Since Mao Zedongfs death the Chinese have been debating the future character of the country's political and economic system. The present collection of Chen Yun's writings must be read against the backdrop of the ongoing policy discussion in the 1980s. Chen has been, and remains, an advocate of economic policies that are central to this debate, and since 1978 many of his views have become state policy. In this context the publication in China of this volume of Chen's writings and speeches from 1956 to 1962 undoubtedly is designed in part to bolster Chen's point of view in policy discussions. The author cites that the implicit message of this volume, translated here in full, is that had Chen's views been heeded earlier, China would have developed rapidly and successfully

Agricultural prices in China by Nicholas R Lardy( Book )

12 editions published between 1983 and 1984 in English and Undetermined and held by 138 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( )

12 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 98 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
