The performance of various types of capital resources in the economic reforms of China are of great interest to those involved in the reforms as policymakers, scholars, and businesspeople. Four major areas of financial development are identified—banking and loans, trade and foreign direct investments, official flows and foreign exchanges, and the stock market. The quality, or efficiency, of the capital resource has not been given equal weight with quantity, as it is difficult to measure the quality of a resource, and because more of a capital resource is generally preferred to less. A comprehensive analysis of trade and investment issues in China has been provided.

Editorial Reviews

Noting the peculiarity that China's commercial expansion has proceeded with no lack of capital, usually thought of as the limiting factor, 11 studies look at the sources of capital, but more importantly at the efficiency of its accumulation and investment. They consider four sources: banking foreign direct investment and trade, official flows, and equities. The topics include criteria and procedures for foreign bank lending to Chinese industries, the current state and prospects of Japan's direct investment, commodity futures markets, and the stock markets. Distributed in the US by Greenwood. Annotation c. by Book News, Inc., Portland, Or.
