EXCERPTS FROM THE BOOK Aggregate demand in China, a regime of regulated interest rates, follows the rationing equilibrium model of IS–LM. Fig. 1.5 shows that under a regulated interest rate (Rr), the interest rate policy line R = Rr intersects with the IS curve on the right of the LM curve, and the rationing equilibrium (Er) determines the real aggregate demand according to the shortside rule, i.e., Y = min {Y | IS (R = Rr), Y | LM (R = Rr)} = Y | LM (R = Rr). Because Y | LM (R = Rr) = K– (M/P – L (Rr)), the aggregate demand function for China takes the monetarist form of Y = D (M/P, Rr) (Zheng, 1998). With the continuous clearing of the money market under credit rationing, any excess investment demand over the saving supply in the goods market is offset by excess supply in the credit market. As such, the IS–LM model exhibits a general equilibrium, which satisfies the Walras’ law. Chapter 1  The Aggregate Supply and Aggregate Demand Functions for China

• Considers the rise of China as a world superpower, the future of China’s shale gas industry, and the nation’s ongoing policy reforms • Reveals how U.S. government actions and fiscal policies affect China and the larger Asian region and plots a path for the future

CONTENT HIGHLIGHTS In the United States, the Obama administration will first organize a smooth handling of the so-called fiscal cliff and this should play a stabilizing role on consumption and the rest of the economy. In the long-term, the U.S. structural reforms are to focus on fiscal consolidation, lead to the development of ambitious industrial policies, and assist in the completion of financial reforms. The re-industrialization policy will play a central role in the rebirth of the U.S. economy. The policy will offer a defense of strategically important industrial sectors, give assistance to potential growth via infrastructure projects, support research and education, align with a goal of energy self-sufficiency, and fit in with a protectionist external trade policy. All of this will be coupled with supporting re-shoring. In China, we expect an investment boom to provide a short- to medium-term boost following the leadership transition which should initiate another “Golden Decade,” while structural reforms will be essential for sustaining long-term economic growth. China is in a long process of transitioning towards a domestic consumption-driven growth model and away from an export-led and investment-driven model, and China still needs various structural reforms, including an enhancement of the contribution of consumption and services in the GDP structure in particular.

EXCERPTS FROM THE BOOK Commenting on the Spring and Autumn Annals by Confucius, Mencius said, “The affairs in the Spring and Autumn Annals were the deeds of Duke Huan of Qi and Duke Wen of Jin, and the text was the record of the official historians. Confucius said, ‘Their significance I ventured to make out.’” From my understanding, Mencius’ comment had two layers of meaning. First, while it is true that it is the “affairs” and “text” that are derived from the primary historical works of Lu that make the Spring and Autumn Annals what they are, what is more important is the conferring of “significance.” … The other layer of meaning is that this “significance” embedded in the Annals is what Confucius “ventured to make out.” This stresses the individuality of the conferring of significance, which implies that Confucius’ recording of history was an exertion of his humanistic learning in accordance with his temperament.

EXCERPTS FROM THE BOOK In the first month of the 20th century, two years and four months after the Coup of 1898, Empress Dowager Cixi who fled Beijing under the threat of the Eight-Nation Alliance forces issued an imperial edict in the name of the emperor to institute a reform, marking the start the New Policy Campaign in the last decade of the Qing Dynasty. Facing the social crisis after the Gengzi Event and the impending revolution, the Qing government apparently signaled its intention of self-rectification. It was an irony to see that one who had once cracked down on reformers advocate “reforms.” It was criticized as a “fake reform” and considered different from the Wuxu Reform, which had the purpose to save and restore the empire. However, truth often exists in paradox: this fake reform in turn produced certain real changes, the most notable being that to the education system. These changes persisted and even become more prominent after the Xinhai Revolution overthrew the Qing Dynasty, which reflected the recognition of history, and history will never accept fakes. No lies could go down in history. Therefore, the crucial issue of studying the New Policy Campaign lies in the unveiling of this fake reform, and, more importantly, the real changes amid it. --Chapter13 Real Changes under Fake Reform

MESSAGE FROM THE CEO

Welcome! This has been an exciting time for Enrich Professional Publishing! Considering the number of our past publishing triumphs, by this time next year, we will have produced about 150 titles — a fine example of the collaborative nature of publishing and a reflection of the hard work and dedication of our many contributors. The first titles from Enrich Professional Publishing were the products of our fruitful partnerships with the Renmin University of China and its University Press, the Social Sciences Academic Press (China), and other renowned institutions. We trust you will find these books an invaluable source of firsthand, authoritative, and timely information about the fast changing economy and financial developments of Mainland China. I am excited about being able to share such important works from highly regarded Chinese academics and scholars with a wider English-speaking audience. We are now registered in America and are expanding our ebook, Kindle, and Printon-Demand (POD) efforts through our various partnerships around the world. We are now able to reach readers worldwide in numerous print and electronic formats. Our mission of bringing timely, accurate, and honest information on China to readers is now bearing fruit on a grand scale. My team and I welcome your feedback as we continue our journey. Derek Lee, CEO Autumn 2013
