Overview

This book aims to explain China's development strategy and its underlying forces, and the success of this strategy. It examines China's gradualist approach, which emphasizes development first, and regards transition and globalization as secondary, enacting liberalization of domestic markets, and integration into the world economy in a paced way, avoiding dramatic changes which might impede or even reverse development, and argues that this approach is broadly correct. It considers China's failures, including the failure to build large globally competitive corporations despite the intention to do this, and shows how China's economic strategy has been implemented in detail with a case study of the large and important coal industry.

    Run Chapter Two

    The mare looked up at the sound and her ears went back. There, at the crest of the hill, was a cougar. In it's grip was a brown mare who's head was hanging. The cougar dropped the limp carcass and began to advance on the dappled mare and her foal. It was time to leave. The dappled mare nudged her foal to his feet, who had enough sense to stay upwards.
