Item description for Development Centre Studies Chinese Economic Performance in the Long Run - Second Edition, Revised and Updated: 960-2030 AD (Development Centre Studies) by Angus Maddison...
The study provides a major reassessment of the scale and scope of Chinas resurgence over the past half century, employing quantitative measurement techniques which are standard practice in OECD countries. It uses a comparative approach to explain why Chinas role in the world economy has changed so dramatically in the last thousand years. It concludes that China is likely to resume its natural role as the worlds largest economy by the year 2015, thus regaining the position it had held until 1890. A dynamic link (StatLink) is provided for each table and graph, which directs the user to a web page where the corresponding data are available in Excel format.
