Recent years in all countries the products of China’s industry are commonly used; electronic devices, toys, textile, products are some of them. Until very near future China was not well known by people; although it had an important position in the global economy. For hundreds of years the general policy of China had aimed protecting its culture, so it tried to avoid improving relationships with foreign countries. For centuries China have had pure culture. But after the communist regime in China, there occurred lots of policy change especially in economy. Till 1949, China was trying to feed only its own nation, the productivity is sufficient for itself; afterwards China speed up its productivity. That is surprising for the rest of the world. In lots of sectors China’s products start to be sold; so everyone think about an important question: “How did China develop so rapidly?” The answer is not single because development requires a continuous and successive process. Through this process China have passed some stages successfully, one of these stages is political reforms and as a result economic reforms. In order to better understand the success of Chinese economy today first the process of political development that China has passed through should be analysed. *Teng-hui (1995) reports the political reforms of China from 1930’s till 1990’s.For two thousand years China was administrated by an emperor. It did not have a democratic regime. Between 1937 and 1945 there had been a war against Japan and after that the Chinese Communist Party revolted. In 1948 ROC (republic of China) developed formally the Temporary Provisions Effective During the Period of Communist Rebellion. The following year Taiwan was located again by ROC. Due to the threats of Communism the Temporary Provisions standed for 43 years till 1991. The rights given to people by the ROC…...

...International Expansion Elena Popova Professor Steven Englehart International Business Strategy 10/27/2013 Strayer University 1. Develop a revised international product life cycle plan As the global economy continues to stumble, retailers are struggling to achieve growth domestically. While there are pockets of opportunity, many retail sectors in the United States are saturated and not expected to grow much, if at all. Growth may be heavily dependent on winning share from competitors, typically a taxing effort. Consequently, many retailers are looking beyond their borders for potential growth. Foreign markets offer attractive growth rates fueled by burgeoning middle classes, lower competitive intensity, and greater pricing flexibility. Additionally, a global presence may help retailers lessen their risk exposure to an economic downturn in any one market. Every brand or product has its life cycle which spans from the time it is launched to the time it exits from the market. This cycle covers four stages, introduction, growth, maturity and decline. The life cycle of each and every brand or product is different, and different advertising strategies should be adopted at different stages to suit the marketing targets and market environment in order to achieve the best marketing results. The first stage in a product’s life cycle is the introduction stageintroduction stageThe first stage of the product life cycle after a product is launched.. The introduction stage...

Westward Expansion

...The Westward Expansion The westward expansion is one of the most fascinating and significant topics in the history of the United States. Nowhere else has an area of equal size been settled by small groups and individuals. Westward expansion helped stimulate the American economy. At the time, progress was beneficial for the United States, but those benefits came with a cost, such cost that instead of advancements and developments being advantageous for humanity, it also became a harmful process in which numerous people were affected in many facets of life. This all means that progress is remarkable to achieve, but when achieved, people have to realize the process they had to do to achieve it, which was stepping on other people to get there. To gain access to the western part of the country the white settlers had to pass through the Native Americans. While pushing westward the white culture clashed with the plain Indians and their culture. As a result of these bloody battles and the white settlers that were victorious, the Native Americans were restricted to small portions of their land. The government supported assimilation, which was the plan to unite the Native American culture with the white one. White settlers started moving westward to settle the land gained by the victory over the Native Americans. A major factor that caused this major movement, other than by the victory of the war, was the Homestead Act. This act provided and granted 160 acres of free......

Problems with Chinese Economic Growth

...Problems of Chinese Economic Growth?  Since 1978 the Chinese economy has maintained economic growth at an average of nearly 8%. By western standards this is remarkable. The UK, by contrast, has grown at an average rate of 2.5%. However, despite the impressive figures there are many serious economic problems resulting from economic growth. In particular, the growth rate combined with a population of over 1 billion has caused serious environmental problems. These are a good example of negative externalities of growth. A negative externality is a cost imposed on the rest of society as a result of receiving the benefits from growth. Problems of Chinese Economic Growth. 1.Pollution. Pollution is a major problem in many industrialised cities. Increased car ownership has led to problems of smog and worsening air quality. Pollution also occurs from China’s vast industrial sector. Often regulation of pollution is very limited with untreated sewage often been poured directly into rivers. 2. Shortage of Power. The growing demand of the Chinese economy has placed great demands on China’s creaking power infrastructure. This has led to the creation of projects like the Three Gorges Dam. This has been criticised for creating environmental and social problems. Environmentalists fear that the dam will severely impact on the natural habitats of many species. 3. Growing Income Inequality China’s economic growth has benefited the south and eastern regions more than......

...RERUM NOVARUM ON CAPITAL AND LABOR ENCYCLICAL OF POPE LEO XIII MAY 15, 1891 To Our Venerable Brethren the Patriarchs, Primates, Archbishops, Bishops, and other Ordinaries of Places having Peace and Communion with the Apostolic See. That the spirit of revolutionary change, which has long been disturbing the nations of the world, should have passed beyond the sphere of politics and made its influence felt in the cognate sphere of practical economics is not surprising. The elements of the conflict now raging are unmistakable, in the vast expansion of industrial pursuits and the marvelous discoveries of science; in the changed relations between masters and workmen; in the enormous fortunes of some few individuals, and the utter poverty of the masses; in the increased self-reliance and closer mutual combination of the working classes; as also, finally, in the prevailing moral degeneracy. The momentous gravity of the state of things now obtaining fills every mind with painful apprehension; wise men are discussing it; practical men are proposing schemes; popular meetings, legislatures, and rulers of nations are all busied with it -- actually there is no question which has taken a deeper hold on the public mind. 2. Therefore, venerable brethren, as on former occasions when it seemed opportune to refute false teaching, We have addressed you in the......

...presidents in 2008. Another controversy about the United States is the economic crisis hitting the country. Walter Adams explained that “reports on the state of the American Economy are filled with anxiety and unease” (1). Job growth has been minimal with unemployment rate being at 6%. The difference between the social classes is enormous as the United States holds some of the poorest people and also richest people in the world. After the crisis, a lot of companies are operating at loss, not making any benefit at all. Newcomer companies struggle to find a place, leaving the concurrency unbalanced, therefore, a raise of prices. Finally, the United States are prone to a never ending social crisis. The country is a cultural crossover therefore, social inequalities remain a highly debated subject. Indeed, racism, although being problematic for decades already, is timeless. Minorities suffer from lack of employment, a high rate of homelessness and a lack of trust. It’s almost impossible for an Afro-American of a Hispanic person to find a highly qualifying job or even rent as the white majority have those misconception and stereotypical points of view. Sexism is another topic that remains debatable. Women’s wages are fairly inferior to men’s since for every dollar a man earns, a woman earns 70 cents. Inequality between men and women is still a trend topic, and although feminists work hard to have the economic, political and social freedom men have, females are still being......

Chinese Economics

...successful and politically dominant. Foreign trade was fully established by that point and territory expansion had gone to dramatic rates. The Song period (960-1279) included the most remarkable economic transformation for commercial, technological and urban economies. At this point, China had let go of some of its militarism and political domination. Shortly after, however, the Yuan era (1271-1368) restored National Unity, political strategy and militarism. Jacques argues that China and the “West” were neck and neck in the race for global economic domination until China completely veered off its track in the 1800s. While Europe and the US introduced industrial economies extremely quickly and underwent massive social and cultural reform, China stood back and continued to rely on its agriculture for too long and never culturally reformed. IV. SUMMARY/DESCRIPTION OF CONTENTS Throughout the reading of the book, the realization of a masterpiece becomes more apparent to the reader. It is truly a high-intelligence book that gives a deep insight into the scale of Global Economy. Often times when reading an economic book, the author’s political beliefs ooze out of the writing, however, Jacques has done a great job keeping his semi-conservative beliefs out of the book. Instead, he focuses highly on what China accomplished in the past, why China veered from the race of Global Economic Leader and what the US does differently that allows it to excel past China. The author also......

The study use an augmented aggregate production function (APF) growth model, three methods are performed to test the hypothesis that there is no causal relationship between foreign direct investment, exports, imports and economic growth. The statistical methods used are: the Ordinary Least Squares Method (OLS) and the Granger causality test.

The main changing economic variables in China that influenced McDonald’s Expansion were the increase in GDP and the economic stimulus package. In 2007, the increase in GDP showed a level of strong jobs in China as well as increase income for the Chinese (Farnham, 2010). This allowed the Chinese to spend more money on eating out at restaurants which gave McDonald’s a great opportunity for expansion. In addition, the Chinese government had a stimulus package after the economy dropped in 2008. The stimulus package included building more highways which allowed the Chinese to be accessible to the drive through window opportunity that McDonalds was able to offer as part of their expansion.

This expression is indeed, justified by the spectacular economic growth of China the past 3O years and by the fact that today, China is considered as one of the most important economic power in the world. Our country has known many changes: from the gai ge kai fang, under the leadership of Deng Xiao Ping where China experienced effective agricultural reforms, to our days when China, with 1/5 of world population, opened its doors to foreign investment, privatization, and export, leading to unprecedented growth. However, this growth is confronted with many challenges, external or internal. Among them, environmental issues are the most evident and urgent.
