Synopsis

Economic Growth, Income Distribution and Poverty Reduction in Contemporary China by Shujie Yao

China has experienced over a quarter century of rapid economic growth, which has had a phenomenal impact on the global economy. Entering into the twenty-first century implies that China has begun a new phase of economic and social development. Yao reviews the economic development history of contemporary China from 1949 to the present, paying special attention to growth, inequality and poverty reduction. A real Chinese economic miracle should have two important features: high income growth and a fair distribution system so that poverty can be eradicated.

A well laid out site, I love the fact that is separates paranormal fiction from fantasy and horror, which other sites don't.

It has opened my eyes to different authors and genres. Just log on and try, you will be surprised and not want for reading material again.

Lovereading is not only an amazing site, but it's one of my very favourites. It's like visiting a fascinating bookstore, but better.

For me, to read is to learn, to reflect, to escape, to think, to contemplate and my time for space and calm.
