Introduction Culture can be defined as a set of shared beliefs that a group of people practice. Every nation across the world has a culture that can best be used to describe them. China has a population of more than 1.5 billion people with a strong culture that stretches for over 4000 years. The Chinese transformation in to the fastest growing economy of at an annual rate of about 10% has brought the country into much international focus. The country has the second largest economy in the world and is also ranked second behind the United States for the recipient of Foreign Direct Investment, FDI.
The One Child Policy Under the Chinese History In the early period after the founding of the People's Republic of China, Chairman Mao believed that a strong nation should have a large population. However, with the development of society, China suffered many problems causing from the large population. The one-child policy was adopted in 1979, in response to the growing population. In the essay “The Little Emperors”, Daniela Deane points out several negative effects of the one-child policy, such as the “millions of abortions, fewer girls and a generation of spoiled children”(65). However, Chinese history has effected people’s mind and habits, so the one-child policy is not the only reason that causes these problems; in other words, the one-child policy effectively reduce the Chinese population.
I have leaned that if your population is to high your people will feel crowded and there will be a food shortage but more people equals more taxes. So I had to figure out a way to balance the rising population but also Battle over population. The answer was (this is the shocker…) industrialization of farmlands. ( Again does this sound familiar?). Its no surprise that China is one of the most Industrialistic country with over 1, 330, 044, 544 people ( as of July 2008 Source: www.google.com ) which in my scientific analysis says nearly 700, 000, 000 are in the work force and within nearly 100, 000, 000 or less (much, much less) are in agriculture or livestock.
The way China’s political leaders reacted in Tiananmen Square shows its firm grip on its political policies. Evolving into East Asia’s hegemon and slowly rising to the world’s top grossing economy, China has built a stable and exponentially increasing economy. America’s hyper power days have been well over considering the 2007 recession, immense debt to China, and its yearly mandated increase of America’s debt ceiling. China’s capitalism is different to America’s in terms of its heavy reliance on state-owned enterprises and its quick investment on physical infrastructure. With several projections from acclaimed economists and other sources China is bid to become the World’s largest economy in the next century or
With growing competition among private companies, there was a significant growth in the number of factories in China. This also led to toxic-coal-waste, which is the “largest source of industrial waste” in China (Doc. 7). Because of China’s increasing energy demand due to a rising production in cars and air conditioners, it “is turning into the world’s biggest energy consumer” (Doc. 6).
Native-born workers make up around 16 percent of the workforce, while immigrants represent almost 50 percent of U.S. work force development since the mid-1990s. As indicated by the Fiscal Policy Institute, little organizations claimed by foreigners utilized an expected 4.7 million individuals in 2007. Therefore, these little organizations create more than 776 billion dollars per year. For a length of time, settlers and their families have played an essential part in the U.S workforce and economy. With no doubt Immigrants have expanded the general size of the U.S. economy.
Immigrants from China built the Transcontinental Railroad, which brought our country together by connecting the East and West. Many have become scientists or engineers and have created numerous ideas and inventions to make our lives better. Immigration is the largest factor contributing to population growth and contributes over 2.25 million people to the U.S. population annually. (Elbel) The chart shows the U.S. has traditionally allowed relatively small numbers to immigrate, thus allowing for decades of assimilation. After the peak of about 8.7 million in the first decade of the 20th century, numbers went steadily down.
However, China’s higher economic power over other nations lifted hundreds of millions of people from deep poverty and has helped improve health, education, and other social standards. According to the 2013 World Bank’s world developing indicators, China is listed among the Upper-Middle Income Countries (UMC) (Todaro and Smith, 2015, p. 43). Unlike China, the traditional mercantilists held almost all their nationals in abject poverty with an exception of the royalty, merchant capitalists, landlords and senior government officials (Brue and Grant, 2013, p. 18). The Heckscher-Ohlin factor proportions theory states that countries produce and export goods that require resources (factors) that are abundant and import goods that require resources in short supply (Wild and Wild, 2012, p. 140). China is labour abundant, influencing the cost of labour thereby attracting investment and economic
Basically, China today, increased to a marginal amount of 15.1% from the 1960s. Perraton, J. and Goldblatt, D. also agrees that major transformation in post war trade has been the rapid growth of manufactured exports from a range of developing countries, which have risen
