This book is unique in covering all important topics of the
Chinese economy in depth but written in a language understandable
to the layman and yet challenging to the expert. Beginning with
entrepreneurship that propels the dynamic economic changes in China
today, the book is organized into four broad parts to discuss
China's economic development, to analyze significant economic
issues, to recommend economic policies and to comment on the timely
economic issues in the American economy for comparison.
Unlike a textbook, the discussion is original and
thought-provoking. It is written by a most distinguished economist
who has studied the Chinese economy for thirty years, after making
breathtaking contributions to the fields of econometrics, applied
economics and dynamic economics and serving as a major adviser to
the government of Taiwan during its period of rapid development in
the 1960s and 1970s. In the last thirty years, the author has
served as a major adviser to the government of China on economic
reform and important economic policies and cooperated with the
Ministry of Education to introduce and promote the development of
modern economics in China, including training hundreds of
economists in China and placing many graduate students to pursue a
doctoral degrees in economics in leading universities in the US and
Canada. These graduates now plays pivotal roles in China and in the
US in academics, business or government institutions. The essays, a
culmination of the author's expertise in China over five decades,
are being widely read in China. When the author became professor
emeritus at Princeton, the University named the Econometric
Research Program as the Gregory C Chow Econometric Research Program
in his honor.
