OSPBEIJ 20: Understanding China's Rise

This course is an overview China's economic trajectory since the 1980s. Students should finish the course with an understanding of the following issues: What made China's rapid economic advance possible? In what ways is China's rise historically unprecedented, and in what ways not? How is the Chinese model distinctive? What has changed from the planned economy era, and what has not? How do China's political institutions affect its economy? What are the most credible explanations for China's economic rise? What current challenges will shape China's future? To address these questions, we will trace the evolution of China's economy from the days of its modified Soviet-style system to the present state-directed market economy. We will specify how China's trajectory compares with other countries that have departed from the previous visions of state socialism, as well as economies in East Asia that have also experienced "miracle" growth.

To address these questions, we will trace the evolution of China's economy from the days of its modified Soviet-style system to the present state-directed market economy. We will specify how China's trajectory compares with other countries that have departed from the previous visions of state socialism, as well as economies in East Asia that have also experienced "miracle" growth. We will consider widely discussed limits of the Chinese model and problems that must be solved in the coming years. Along the way we will look closely at the engine that has driven China's growth, and the ways that China differs from almost all other major economies. We will also examine trends in inequality, demographic change, and educational expansion that may create constraints on China's future development. NOTE: OSPBEIJ 20 is the same as -Sociology 175/275/ Global 194-. Students may not earn credit for both.
