Overview

China's Accession To the World Trade Organization (WTO) has been hailed as the biggest coming-out party in the history of capitalism. Its membership eventually will contribute to higher standards of living for its citizens and increased growth for its economy. But why would the Chinese communist regime now voluntarily agree to comply with the many complex rules of the global trading system? China has already become the world's seventh largest trading country while avoiding these constraints by remaining outside the system.

The answer to this question forms the basis for this book. Drawing on a wealth of scholarship and experience, Nicholas R. Lardy explores the many pressures on the Chinese government to comply with the standards of the rules-based international trading system. Lardy explains how China's leadership expects to leverage the increased foreign competition inherent in its WTO commitments to accelerate its domestic economic reform program, leading to the shrinkage and transformation of inefficient, money-losing companies and hastening the development of a commercial credit culture in its banks. He answers a number of other questions about China's new WTO membership, including its effects on bilateral trade with the United States; the possibility that China will use its power to reshape the WTO in the future; the degree to which the terms of China's entry were more or less demanding than those for other new members; the ability of China's economy to successfully open to new imports; and the prospects for new growth in various sectors of China's economy made possible by WTO accession. This book will become an important tool for those who wish to understand China's new role in the global trading system, take advantage of the new opportunities for investment in China, or simply gain a better understanding of what former President Clinton called a "once in a generation event."

Editorial Reviews

Booknews
Lardy (foreign policy studies, Brookings Institution) examines the implications of China's entry into the World Trade Organization from the perspective of American and European businesses seeking to profit off of China's vast market. He looks at economic and political factors that are likely to shape the "trade" outcomes of the new situation and assesses the likelihood that China will accede to the rules of the neoliberal global economy.
