The New Normal of China's Economy Connotation and Measurement

Author: Chinese Academy of Social Sciences Format: Hardback Release Date: 28/02/2020

Based on an examination of national and international background, this report analyzes the concept of China's New Normal Economy, emphasizing its conceptual changes, economic theory foundations and its practical background. This report proposes that China's New Normal Economy is a new market economy normal during a time when the eight dividends (namely, the dividends of population, productivity, urbanization, economic structure, reform, resource, environment and net export) gradually shrink or vanish. Under the new normal, economic growth at the past super-high speed under non-market economy normal will slow down to ordinary speed under market economy normal . The slowing down of economic growth would be gradual but irreversible. In order to maintain a stable and continuous economic growth under the new normal, this report provides seven strategic measures, including: comprehensive reform strategy to cope with shrinking reform dividend; information driven development strategy to cope with shrinking productivity dividend; human resource nurturing strategy to cope with shrinking population dividend; circular economy strategy to cope with resource and environmental dividends; substantial urbanization strategy to cope with shrinking urbanization dividend; manufacturing and emerging industries upgrading strategy to cope with shrinking structural dividend; and service and trade improvement strategy to cope with shrinking net export dividend.

Probability Models for Economic Decisions

Probability Models for Economic Decisions

An introduction to the use of probability models for analyzing risk and economic decisions, using spreadsheets to represent and simulate uncertainty. This textbook offers an introduction to the use of probability models for analyzing risks and economic decisions. It takes a learn-by-doing approach, teaching the student to use spreadsheets to represent and simulate uncertainty and to analyze the effect of such uncertainty on an economic decision. Students in applied business and economics can more easily grasp difficult analytical methods with Excel spreadsheets. The book covers the basic ideas of probability, how to simulate random variables, and how to compute conditional probabilities via Monte Carlo simulation. The first four chapters use a large collection of probability distributions to simulate a range of problems involving worker efficiency, market entry, oil exploration, repeated investment, and subjective belief elicitation. The book then covers correlation and multivariate normal random variables; conditional expectation; optimization of decision variables, with discussions of the strategic value of information, decision trees, game theory, and adverse selection; risk sharing and finance; dynamic models of growth; dynamic models of arrivals; and model risk. New material in this second edition includes two new chapters on additional dynamic models and model risk; new sections in every chapter; many new end-of-chapter exercises; and coverage of such topics as simulation model workflow, models of probabilistic electoral forecasting, and real options. The book comes equipped with Simtools, an open-source, free software used througout the book, which allows students to conduct Monte Carlo simulations seamlessly in Excel.

Understanding Chinese GDP

Understanding Chinese GDP

Author: Xuguang Song Format: Hardback Release Date: 16/12/2019

This book provides in-depth analyses on accounting methods of GDP, statistic calibers and comparative perspectives on Chinese GDP. Beginning with an exploration of international comparisons of GDP, the book introduces the theoretical backgrounds, data sources, algorithms of the exchange rate method and the purchasing power parity method and discusses the advantages, disadvantages, and the latest developments in the two methods. This book further elaborates on the reasons for the imperfections of the Chinese GDP data including limitations of current statistical techniques and the accounting system, as well as the relatively confusing statistics for the service industry. The authors then make suggestions for improvement. Finally, the authors emphasize that evaluation of a country's economy and social development should not be solely limited to GDP, but should focus more on indicators of the comprehensive national power, national welfare, and the people's livelihood. This book will be of interest to economists, China-watchers, and scholars of geopolitics.

Patterns of Economic Change by State and Area 2019 Income, Employment, & Gross Domestic Product

Patterns of Economic Change by State and Area 2019 Income, Employment, & Gross Domestic Product

Author: Hannah Anderson Krog Format: Paperback / softback Release Date: 15/12/2019

Patterns of Economic Change by State and Area: Income, Employment, and Gross Domestic Product is a special edition of Business Statistics of the United States. It presents data on personal income, employment, and gross domestic product for the United States as a whole, and by region, state, and metropolitan statistical area (MSA). Data on personal income and employment extends back to 1960 for the states and regions and to 1970 for the MSAs. Patterns of Economic Change complements other Bernan Press titles such as the State and Metropolitan Area Data Book and County and City Extra. In contrast to their predominantly current and detailed cross-section data on states and metropolitan areas, this book contributes historical time-series measurements of key aggregates that show how the economies of regions, states, and metropolitan areas have responded over time to cyclical currents and long-term trends. Statistics at the state level provide a framework for analyzing current economic conditions in each state and can serve as a basis for decision making. For example: *Federal government agencies use the statistics as a basis for allocating funds and determining matching grants to states. The statistics are also used in forecasting models to project energy and water use. *State governments use the statistics to project tax revenues and the need for public services. *Academic regional economists use the statistics for applied research. *Businesses, trade associations, and labor organizations use the statistics for market research.
