Good introduction of economic reforms in China since 1978 and their impact on Chinese economy. A must to understand the huge success of this nation, the current debate on China as an unfair competitor vs the US, the challenges ahead to escape the "middle income trap" and enter the high earning countries league.

A basic understanding of economy is not essential but helps in understanding the most technical concepts.
