Kurzbeschreibung

2. Juli 2009
The new China, the nation that in 25 years has changed beyond all recognition is becoming an industrial powerhouse for the world. James Kynge shows not only the extraordinary rise of the Chinese economy, but what the future holds as China begins to influence the world. On the eve of the British industrial revolution some 230 years ago, China accounted for one third of the global economy. In 1979, after 30 years of Communism, its economy contributed only two per cent to global GDP. Now it is back up to five per cent, and rising. Although China is already a palpable force in the world, its re-emergence is only just starting to be felt. Kynge shows China's weaknesses - its environmental pollution, its crisis in social trust, its weak financial system and the faltering institutions of its governments - which are poised to have disruptive effects on the world. The fall-out from any failure in China's rush to modernity or simply from a temporary economic crash in the Chinese economy would be felt around the world.

Should the U.S. worry about China? Most definitely— but, by Kynge's account, for different reasons from the ones being raised on Capitol Hill.

Synopsis

The new China, the nation that in 25 years has changed beyond all recognition is becoming an industrial powerhouse for the world. James Kynge shows not only the extraordinary rise of the Chinese economy, but what the future holds as China begins to influence the world. On the eve of the British industrial revolution some 230 years ago, China accounted for one third of the global economy. In 1979, after 30 years of Communism, its economy contributed only two per cent to global GDP. Now it is back up to five per cent, and rising. Although China is already a palpable force in the world, its re-emergence is only just starting to be felt. Kynge shows China's weaknesses - its environmental pollution, its crisis in social trust, its weak financial system and the faltering institutions of its governments - which are poised to have disruptive effects on the world. The fall-out from any failure in China's rush to modernity or simply from a temporary economic crash in the Chinese economy would be felt around the world.

4.0 von 5 Sternen The rise of China- for good and for bad 6. April 2007
Von Shalom Freedman - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch
This book focuses on the economic development of China since the end of the Cultural Revolution. It opens with Chinese workers dismantling a German steel factory and transmitting it whole to China. There will also be a description of how Chinese workers and enterprisers enter the Italian textile center of Prato and provide first an economic boom, and then a threat to its existence. The book is filled with pictures of gigantic Chinese economic projects and development. The subtitle of the book 'The Rise of a Hungry Nation' hints at the tremendous appetite China is diplaying for every kind of product and industry. The upside of this is as Kynge writes the removal of four- hundred million people from poverty, the rise of a more urban China in which there is greater opportunity for work and education for great masses of people. Kynge also argues in the book that Chinese trading, the growth of its economy has been good for the world- economy in certain ways. The seven- hundred billion dollars the Chinese hold in Treasury Bonds , Kynge claims, sustain the American economy.
The downside however is great indeed. The picture Kynge gives of China is too of a vast polluted, corrupt , hungry nation in which there are no legal bars to any kind of activity. It is a nation in which the illegal or grey economy is at least a third of the whole. It is a nation which engages in piracy outright of all kinds of intellectual property. It is of course still politcally unfree, a Communist state in name and doctrine which on the one side promotes and teaches friendship with the world while also providing xenophobic education to its children.
Many have spoken about the twenty- first century as the century of China. Kynge says that by 2040 China will have a larger economy than the American one. But what strikes me is how poor in certain ways the great Chinese expansion is.
The U.S. in becoming the most prosperous nation in the world gave mankind a dream. It was a dream of personal freedom and opportunity. And it was too a dream of political liberty for all of mankind. There was a beauty in the American vision, something sublime and great .
The Chinese rise seems to be a rise of the belly alone. China is hungry for learning also , and Kynge does speak about the expansion of its universities, and the opportunities given for Chinese to learn abroad. But basically the Chinese activity does seem more like a response to 'hunger' a natural- need unrelated and unconnected to any gift or blessing to the rest of mankind.
There is another dimension of this. The rise of China and also of India the rise of the masses of mankind into higher levels of technological competence is also more pressure on dwindling natural resources, oil, water, even air.
I may be completely wrong, but it thus seems to me that the rise of China, at least as described in this book, is a real potential source of problems for mankind.
5.0 von 5 Sternen A truly must-read for everyone who is interested in world-scale events with long-term effects. 27. November 2012
Von Michel Robeers - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch|Von Amazon bestätigter Kauf
This book really is an eye-opener to everybody who has an interest in what's going on in the world and that really is important. In-depth analysis from a knowledgeable insider. Should be promoted to youngsters above 16, as they will be confronted at full with the consequences of this development. A perfect gift for Christmas.
5.0 von 5 Sternen China Shakes the World 12. Februar 2011
Von Spider Monkey - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch
'China Shakes The World' is a thoroughly engrossing look at China's economy and how it affects the rest of the world. Kynge's style is very fluid and easy to read and after only a few pages you are unable to stop reading. Due to living there for many years Kynge is able to infuse the various stories with personal insight and you get a good feel for many of the issues explored. Some parts of this book were pretty shocking and makes you realise just how exploited Chinese workers are. You are also left realising how interdependent the world is now and any prosperity or decline in China will have a massive impact worldwide. This book didn't have a happy ending (if you know what I mean), some political books I've read explore the issues, but finish saying how things may be turned around, but this book tended not to do that. Never-the-less, the journey to get to the end was so interesting sand insightful, I'll forgive the slightly sombre finish. Well worth a read for a deeper understanding of the Chinese economy. If you'd like to learn more about Chinese culture and society in general I recommend 'China Friend or Foe?' by Hugo de Burgh.
