Roots of competitiveness : China's evolving agriculture interests by Daniel H Rosen( )

14 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 1,340 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The study finds that the direction of change in Chinese agriculture is manifestly toward reform, structural adjustment and economic rationalization. China is further along toward the end point of that process than generally recognized, and shows a deep, probably irreversible commitment to the process. China can point to demonstrated successes in raising incomes, overall welfare and productivity to justify (to itself) the pain of further adjustment, and has the policy skills to manage (if not minimize) adjustment costs
Accelerating China's rural transformation by Albert Nyberg( )

16 editions published in 1999 in English and held by 1,247 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This report has been prepared to identify and consolidate information on crucial issues affecting future rural development in China. Prepared with the assistance of Chinese and non-Chinese scholars and analysts, the report assesses strategic options from the perspective of efficiency, equitable development, and growth. It concludes that continued reform will entail further liberalization of production, pricing, and marketing policies; strong government promotion of a market environment; and investments in public services and infrastructure."--Jacket

From Marx and Mao to the market : the economics and politics of agricultural transition by Johan F. M Swinnen( Book )

19 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 453 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The emergence of China as a global economic powerhouse, the uncertain path of Russia towards a market economy, and the integration of ten Central and Eastern European countries into the European Union (EU) have occupied the minds and agendas of many policy-makers, business leaders and scholars from around the world at the end of the twentieth and the beginning of the twenty-first century. Twenty years ago these developments were unimaginable. The impact of these changes is so vast that the importance of understanding the forces that unleashed this process, how these changes became possible, and what the lessons are for other development countries, cannot be overestimated." "This book is the first effort to analyze the economics and politics of agricultural reforms by comparing the reform processes, their causes and their effects across this vast region. The authors draw on a vast set of studies and new data, which compare reforms and economic impacts in more than 25 countries. A series of conclusions and implications on the role of economic reforms in growth, and the importance of initial conditions and political constraints in explaining the choices that were made and their effects are discussed throughout the book."--Jacket

Growing pains : tensions and opportunity in China's transformation( Book )

4 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 157 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

China is transforming itself, and the world is adapting in response. Profound forces have reshaped the country's socioeconomic and political landscapes, but they have also brought challenges-growing pains-that China must face if it is to continue its upward trajectory. Despite its successes, China is experiencing sharp growing pains. Rising levels of protest have accompanied the country's wrenching structural transformation. Corruption has prompted some observers to claim that the Chinese government in nothing short of a "predatory state." Legal reform continues to languish. Given that such challenges remain, it might be said that China's structural changes have succeeded. Or, perhaps the country is trapped in transition. This publication contains research presented by preeminent scholars at a conference hosted by the Stanford China Program (SCP) at the Walter H. Shorenstein Asia-Pacific Research Center, held at Stanford University on November 1-3, 2008. The authors identify which of the many problems thought to threaten China's reforms are not as serious as some interpreters claim, as well as those that have already been solved. Other high-profile challenges are highlighted. Some are truly serious and loom on the horizon, such as China's ongoing reforms, employment, land policy, village elections, family planning, health care, social inequality, and environmental degradation. Rich survey data and on-the-ground observation are used to assess the severity of the problems and the likelihood of near-term solutions
China : from afforestation to poverty alleviation and natural forest management by Jikun Huang( Book )

10 editions published in 2000 in English and held by 75 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Although the involvement of the World Bank in the forest sector has a relatively short history, starting in 1988, the impact of Bank projects dates back much further. The Bank's 1991 forest strategy stressed a multi-sectoral approach. Accordingly, this review looked at the Bank's projects in the forest sector, projects with forest sector components, and projects with potential impacts on forests, as well as the Bank's non-lending services. These studies seek to judge whether the Bank has 'done the right things' and 'done things right'
Can China Continue Feeding Itself? The Impact Of Climate Change On Agriculture by Jinxia Wang( )

5 editions published between 2007 and 2012 in English and held by 61 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Abstract: Several studies addressing the supply and demand for food in China suggest that the nation can largely meet its needs in the coming decades. However, these studies do not consider the effects of climate change. This paper examines whether near future expected changes in climate are likely to alter this picture. The authors analyze the effect of temperature and precipitation on net crop revenues using a cross section consisting of both rainfed and irrigated farms. Based on survey data from 8,405 households across 28 provinces, the results of the Ricardian analysis demonstrate that global warming is likely to be harmful to China but the impacts are likely to be very different in each region. The mid latitude region of China may benefit from warming but the southern and northern regions are likely to be damaged by warming. More precipitation is beneficial to Chinese farmers except in the wet southeast. Irrigated and rainfed farmers have similar responses to precipitation but not to temperature. Warmer temperatures may benefit irrigated farms but they are likely to harm rainfed farms. Finally, seasonal effects vary and are offsetting. Although we were able to measure the direct effect of precipitation and temperature, we could not capture the effects of change in water flow which will be very important in China. Can China continue feeding itself if climate changes? Based on the empirical results, the likely gains realized by some farmers will nearly offset the losses that will occur to other farmers in China. If future climate scenarios lead to significant reductions in water, there may be large damages not addressed in this study

Can bureaucrats really be paid Like CEOs? : school administrator incentives for anemia reduction in rural China by Renfu Luo( )

6 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 51 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A large literature examines performance pay for managers in the private sector, but little is known about performance pay for managers in public sector bureaucracies. In this paper, we study performance incentives rewarding school administrators for reducing anemia among their students. Randomly assigning 170 schools to three performance incentive levels and two orthogonal sizes of unconditional grants, we analyze performance pay and its complementarity with discretionary resources. We find that both large incentives and larger unconditional grants reduced anemia substantially, but incentives were more cost-effective. Performance incentives led administrators to innovate by working with parents, mitigating potentially offsetting compensatory behavior among households. Strikingly, we also find that larger unconditional grants completely crowded-out the effect of incentives. Our findings suggest that performance incentives can be effective in bureaucratic environments - but also that discretionary resources can fully crowd-out their effect

Does it Pay to Be a Cadre? Estimating the Returns to Being a Local Official in Rural China by Jian Zhang( )

4 editions published in 2012 in English and Undetermined and held by 31 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Recruiting and retaining leaders and public servants at the grass-roots level in developing countries creates a potential tension between providing sufficient returns to attract talent and limiting the scope for excessive rent-seeking behavior. In China, researchers have frequently argued that village cadres, who are the lowest level of administrators in rural areas, exploit personal political status for economic gain. Much existing research, however, compares the earnings of cadre and non-cadre households in rural China without controlling for unobserved dimensions of ability that are also correlated with success as entrepreneurs or in non-agricultural activities. The findings of this paper suggest a measurable return to cadre status, but the magnitudes are not large and provide only a modest incentive to participate in village-level government. The paper does not find evidence that households of village cadres earn significant rents from having a family member who is a cadre. Given the increasing returns to non-agricultural employment since China's economic reforms began, it is not surprising that the returns to working as a village cadre have also increased over time. Returns to cadre-status are derived both from direct compensation and subsidies for cadres and indirectly through returns earned in off-farm employment from businesses and economic activities managed by villages. -- village political economy ; public sector labor markets ; returns to political status ; rural China
The impact of the global financial crisis on off-farm employment and earnings in rural China by Zhurong Huang( )

4 editions published between 2010 and 2013 in English and held by 26 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This contribution documents the effect of the global financial crisis on women's off-farm employment in China's rural labor force. It begins by comparing the difference between the actual off-farm employment rate and the off-farm employment rate under the assumption of "business as usual" (BAU - a counterfactual of what off-farm employment would have been in the absence of the crisis). The study also examines how the impact of the financial crisis hit different segments of the rural off-farm labor market. Using a primary dataset, the study found that the global financial crisis affected women workers. By April 2009, there was a 5.3 percentage point difference between off-farm employment under BAU and actual off-farm employment for women, and the monthly wages of women declined. Most of this impact affected migrant wage earners; however, the impact did not fall disproportionately on women. The recovery of women's employment was as fast as that of men's employment
