(GB) (SBA-AS)      
Spring. 4 credits. Student option grading.

J. Wallace.

This course provides students with an analytical framework to understand China’s ongoing economic transformation. The courses goals include: 1) to familiarize students with different perspectives on China’s economic development and future prospects; 2) to provide a close working knowledge of the evolving current situation, with a focus on internal variation within China—telling different Chinese stories, not one “China story”—and particularly emphasizing urbanization and the goal of shifting from manufacturing and export-led to services and domestic-led economy; and 3) to give students hands-on experience using Chinese economic data in the context of a brief research note. Each week will connect to current events and debates, with students writing three blog posts over the course of the semester to bring academic research and social scientific analysis to bear upon policy-relevant questions and developments.
