About this product
- DescriptionThe return of the once-dormant ecomies of China and India to dynamism and growth is one of the most remarkable stories in recent history. The two countries are home to nearly 40 percent of the world's population, but until recently neither had played an influential role in the contemporary global ecomy. In the past two decades, China and India have liberalized internal ecomic policy, treatment of foreign investment, and trade, and have experienced ecomic growth at sustained high rates. From the point of view of the United States, however, the most important development in the Chinese and Indian ecomies in the long term may be the strides they are making in developing their own domestic invation capacities. After a long period of underinvestment, both countries have committed to growing their science and education systems to bolster research and further ecomic expansion. Some observers of the recent growth have said that both countries are surging in their efforts to spur invation; others have emphasized the potential of one country over the other; and still others have suggested that both China and India have a long way to go before achieving invation-driven growth. With such a range of views, The National Academies set out to describe developments in both countries, in relation to each other and the rest of the world, by organizing a conference in Washington, D.C. The conference, summarized in this volume, discussed recent changes at both the macroecomic level and also in selected industries, and explored the causes and implications of those changes.
