HSTY2621 - China's Economy: From Mao to Market

Semester 2, 2010  |  Credit Points: 6

Coordinator: Helen Dunstan


Mao tried to forestall future foreign 'naked aggression' such as the Opium Wars by adopting a planned economy, pushing China to the verge of bankruptcy. Deng took onboard in 1978 the concept of Greater China, in which the complementary economies of Mainland China, Taiwan, Hong Kong, Macao, Singapore, and expatriates contribute to China's development. This unit examines the theory and practice of Greater China, which has made China the world's third largest economy.
