China's Economic Revolution
China's Economic Revolution
By Alexander Eckstein
Cambridge University Press, 1977, 340 pp

The last work of a brilliant pioneer in the study of the Chinese economy. Eckstein concludes that, barring a repetition of the Great Leap Forward, the Cultural Revolution, or similar inanities, China should be able to sustain a six percent rate of growth to the end of this century. This would quadruple the gross domestic product and make China one of the five largest economies in the world.
