70 Years of Economic Development and Policy In The People's Republic of China
China has had an enormous growth in GDP since the Cultural Revolution. As such, their influence on a global scale has grown astronomically. Following WWII but prior to Reform and Opening, China was not considered much of a threat by the Western world, but their growing influence on the world economy has allowed them to become a much louder voice when it comes to global issues. Since the acquisition of Hong Kong and Macau, that influence has only grown. In fact, China’s GDP continued to rise during the 2008 global recession when other nations stumbled and saw increases in public spending.
