ECON 271 - Chinese Economy

1 unit(s)
China’s economy has grown swiftly over the past 40 years and, in 10-15 years, it will most likely overtake the U.S. to become the number one economy in the world – yet most people still know very little about it. China’s phenomenal growth has produced both some remarkable achievements and some significant problems. The environmental costs of China’s growth include widespread and sometimes dangerous air, water and land pollution. Because of its size, how well China addresses its problems will affect the entire global economy. This course reviews some of the reasons for China’s growth and examines many of the issues it currently confronts. Specific topics can vary from year to year depending on current events and/or student interest. Robert Rebelein.
