September 28th: noon – 1 pm at HA 206 – Presentation on Insight into Chinese Economy Reform: Past, Present, and Future, by Dr. Hardy Niu



Introduction of the Presentation on Insight into Chinese Economy Reform: Past, Present, and Future

Since 1978, China has been carrying on the policy of reform and opening up, while abandoning the centrally-planned economy. Remarkably high growth rate has been achieved during the past 40 years.
There is no easy access to a convincing explanation for this, because Chinese economy does not fit in any standard economics model. The argument over the Chinese economy has never stopped.
The speaker will introduce a new perspective to analyze and help understand the Chinese economic growth. The 40 years’ growth is divided into three stages, in accordance with the evolving growth motivation, mainly initiated by the Chinese government and jointly supported by the other stakeholders. It’s believed that the changing motivation has put great influence on the development of Chinese economy.
Notably, fundamental changes have emerged since 2012, which makes a big difference for China, as well as the world.
