上海千花网女神会所Nicholas Lardy, an often-cited Washington-based expert on the Chinese economy, argues i
n his recent book The State Strikes Back: The End of Economic Reform in China that China could have co
上海千花网ntinued to grow at 10 percent per year throughout this decade if not for policy mistakes.
His core argument is that Japan and South Korea continued high growth r
ates until they reached GDP per capita equal to 60 to 70 percent of the US, so why can’t China?上海千花网
With all due respect, I think this is a silly argument. The early growth in both Japan and South Korea was based on for
上海千花网eign demand for exports. In South Korea, these exports were manufactured largely by state-led companies.
China is a much larger economy. There is not enough potential import demand in the worl
d to continue as a main driver of the economy’s growth. It takes longer to grow organically from domestic demand.
上海千花网女神会所Japan saw very fast economic growth from the 1950s to the 1970s based on technological c
atch-up and on fast export growth to the US. The export industries of Japan – mostly cars and electronics –
are extremely competitive. But, much of the domestic economy is protected and inefficient.上海千花网
A series of trade disputes with the US in the 1970s and 1980s culminat
上海千花网女神会所ed in the Plaza Accords in 1985 that limited Japanese exports to the US and forced Jap
an to roughly double the value of the yen. So, export-led growth was no-longer an option.
Instead of opening-up and reforming its domestic economy, Japan first chose to use monetary stimulus in the late 1980s, which上海千花网
resulted in an immense real-estate bubble and led to the real-estate and stock market collapses in 1990 to 1992.
Through the 1990s and 2000s, Japan then tried to use very large infrastructure investm上海千花网女神会所
ents to stimulate the economy. This just resulted in negligible growth, ecological damage and a government-d
ebt-to-GDP ratio of more than 200 percent – by far the highest in the world. In contrast, China’s strategy of str
uctural reform, opening up, and increasing domestic competition will lead to more sustainable GDP growth.

The guideline requires universities to integrate brick-and-mortar bookstores into the overall campus con

South Korea – An internal balcony at a nightclub in South Korea collapsed on Saturday, killing two 上海419论坛

上海419论坛女神会所Hundreds were at the nightclub in the southern South Ko

Two South Korean men died while 16 others were injured, police
said. According to a police account, the injured include 10 foreigners, eight of them ath 上海419论坛

Police said they detained one of the nightclub’s co-owners and summoned three othe

to rehear the case, as it believed after a series of investigations, reviews of files and materials, as well a
上海419品茶微信s visits with people involved in the case, that the 2007 ruling was based on the wrongful application of laws.
The 1999 ruling will also be reviewed at the rehearing, the court added.
The case received national attention in April when a local newspaper reported several gangs, including one led by Sun, were 上海419
smashed in a crackdown against organized crimes in Kunming. Sun was then detained for the gang activities.
The case triggered widespread public concern over possible corruption in the judicial and prison syst
上海419品茶微信ems after follow-up stories discovered Sun was the same man convicted of the multiple charges in 1
998 and that he had therefore mysteriously escaped death and been living as a free man.
Sun became shareholder of several enterprises and controlled many bars after leaving prison. 上海419
As the controversies were spreading on Chinese social media, a central inspection group to fight gangrelated cri
上海419品茶微信mes arrived in Yunnan, and demanded a thorough investigation of how Sun appeared to have escaped justice.
In an early release of the inspection group in May, 11 people in Yunnan, including a former senior prison official and a local high cou 上海419
rt judge, had been detained over their possible roles in helping Sun escape capital punishment.
By Friday, the number of officials involved in Sun’s case had increased to 20, according to the official release.
上海419品茶微信Sun’s case also sparked public speculation because of his various identiti
es and family connections, who were widely believed to have sheltered his legal activities.
However, specific information about Sun’s family released on Friday shows that statements previously spread online were u 上海419
ntrue, especially the speculation that Sun’s biological father was a very influential person.
上海419品茶微信Chen Yue, Sun’s biological father, joined the Kunming Public Security Bureau in 1 973 aft

上海后花园Other challenges include the expense-Xu says that he has spent more than 100,000 yuan on his hobby so far.
According to Tang, astronomy has grown in popularity in China in recent years thanks to the gro
wing achievements of China’s astronomers. One of the most recent achievements was taking part in sho上海后花园品茶微信
oting the historic first image of a black hole in April. The project was a global effo
上海后花园rt that involved more than 200 astronomers worldwide, including 16 from the Chinese mainland.
Growing income levels have also enabled enthusiasts to pursue the costly hobby, he adds.
Looking ahead, Xu hopes to be able to capture photos of even better quality. To do so, he n上海后花园品茶微信
oted, would require him to shoot in an environment where there is less light pollution.
“Within the next five years, I plan to have a remote platform installed in a place with less light pollution. Unfortunately, there
上海后花园will have to be a trade-off-I won’t be able to be as closely involved in the process because of its remoteness,” he says.
According to Xu, many astronomy enthusiasts set up their telescopes and cameras at f
acilities in Yunnan province and Xinjiang Uygur autonomous region, where there is minimal light pollution.上海后花园品茶微信
These equipment will then be connected to the internet and looked after by caretakers, allowing them to take photos remot
ely via their computers. The annual fee of renting a space at this facility is around 20,000 yuan, Xu adds.
上海后花园品茶微信To spread his love for astronomy, Xu is also looking to organize classes for young people. Tang suppo
rts this cause, noting that schools in countries overseas place a greater emphasis on natural science than those in
China. As a result, ordinary people here know less about astronomy than their peers abroad.上海后花园
“Whenever you look up at the stars, you understand how sho
