Demystifying the Chinese economy by Justin Yifu Lin( Book )

23 editions published between 2009 and 2014 in English and Chinese and held by 574 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

China was the largest and one of most advanced economies in the world before the eighteenth century, yet declined precipitately thereafter and degenerated into one of the world's poorest economies by the late nineteenth century. Despite generations' efforts for national rejuvenation, China did not reverse its fate until it introduced market-oriented reforms in 1979. Since then it has been the most dynamic economy in the world and is likely to regain its position as the world's largest economy before 2030. Based on economic analysis and personal reflection on policy debates, Justin Yifu Lin provides insightful answers to why China was so advanced in premodern times, what caused it to become so poor for almost two centuries, how it grew into a market economy, where its potential is for continuing dynamic growth and what further reforms are needed to complete the transition to a well-functioning, advanced market economy
The quest for prosperity : how developing economies can take off by Justin Yifu Lin( Book )

23 editions published between 2012 and 2015 in English and Undetermined and held by 560 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

How can developing countries grow their economies? Most answers to this question center on what the rich world should or shouldn't do for the poor world. In The Quest for Prosperity, Justin Yifu Lin--the first non-Westerner to be chief economist of the World Bank--focuses on what developing nations can do to help themselves. Since the end of the Second World War, prescriptions for economic growth have come and gone. Often motivated more by ideology than practicality, these blueprints have had mixed success on the ground. Drawing lessons from history, economic analysis, and pra

Economic development and transition : thought, strategy, and viability by Justin Yifu Lin( Book )

12 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 289 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In Economic Development and Transition, renowned development economist Justin Yifu Lin argues that economic performance in developing countries depends largely on government strategy. If the government plays a facilitating role, enabling firms to exploit the economy's comparative advantages, its economy will develop successfully. However, governments in most developing countries attempt to promote industries that go against their comparative advantages by creating various kinds of distortion to protect nonviable firms in priority industries. Failing to recognize the original intention of many distortions, most governments in transition economies attempt to eliminate those distortions without addressing firms' viability problems, causing economic performance to deteriorate in their transition process. Governments in successful transition economies adopt a pragmatic dual-track approach that encourages firms to enter sectors that were suppressed previously and gives necessary support to firms in priority industries before their viability issue is addressed."--Jacket

New structural economics : a framework for rethinking development by Justin Yifu Lin( Book )

20 editions published between 2010 and 2012 in English and Undetermined and held by 173 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Economic development is a process of continuous technological innovation and structural transformation. Development thinking is inherently tied to the quest for sustainable growth strategies. This book provides a neoclassical approach for studying the determinants of economic structure and its transformation and draws new insights for development policy. The market is the basic mechanism for effective resource allocation at each level of development. However, economic development as a dynamic process entails structural changes, including industrial upgrading and diversification and corresponding improvements in hard and soft infrastructure. Such upgrading and improvements require coordination and go hand in hand with large externalities to firms' transaction costs and returns to capital investment. Thus, in addition to an effective market mechanism, the government should play an active role in facilitating structural changes. The book provides empirical evidence in support of this framework as well as concrete advice to development practitioners
The industrial policy revolution( Book )

16 editions published between 2013 and 2014 in English and held by 118 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This volume is the result of the 2012 International Economic Association's series of roundtables on the theme of Industrial Policy. The first, 'New Thinking on Industrial Policy, ' was hosted by the World Bank in Washington, D.C, and the second, 'New Thinking on Industrial Policy: Implications for Africa, ' was held in Pretoria, South Africa. In this volume, world-renowned economists and policymakers write about industrial policy, which is being recognized anew as a linchpin for the economics of development. They show that developing countries that have undertaken a wide variety of industrial policies have been the most successful. In focusing on Africa, which has a potentially great producer and consumer base for industry, they have chosen a continent that provides an especially clear example of why this refreshed emphasis on industrial policy is so important
State-owned enterprise reform in China by Justin Yifu Lin( Book )

10 editions published between 1995 and 2001 in Chinese and English and held by 116 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Going beyond aid : development cooperation for structural transformation by Justin Yifu Lin( Book )

6 editions published between 2016 and 2017 in English and Chinese and held by 69 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Developing countries have for decades been trying to catch up with the industrialized high-income countries, but only a few have succeeded. Historically, structural transformation has been a powerful engine of growth and job creation. Traditional development aid is inadequate to address the bottlenecks for structural transformation, and is hence ineffective. In this book, Justin Yifu Lin and Yan Wang use the theoretical foundations of New Structural Economics to examine South-South development aid and cooperation from the angle of structural transformation. By studying the successful economic transformation of countries such as China and South Korea through 'multiple win' solutions based on comparative advantages and economy of scale, and by presenting new ideas and different perspectives from emerging market economies such as Brazil, India and other BRICS countries, they bring a new narrative to broaden the ongoing discussions of post-2015 development aid and cooperation as well as the definitions of aid and cooperation
New paradigm for interpreting the Chinese economy : theories, challenges and opportunities by Justin Yifu Lin( Book )

11 editions published between 2013 and 2014 in English and Undetermined and held by 67 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Since the reform and opening up in 1978, the Chinese economy has grown rapidly. China has become the focus of the world due to its astonishing achievements in every aspect of its economical growth. The country's transformation process has witnessed unprecedented social and economic phenomena and the existing economic theories have not been able to explain this rapid growth. Therefore, there is a need to establish new theories. This book fills the gap by bringing forth new ideas and economic theories. The author, who is one of China's most prestigious economists, has a profound understanding of the country's social, economic and political structures. The book is a collection of his most representative works in the recent years. The chapters not only investigate problems and challenges faced by the Chinese economy, but also shed new light on the solutions and opportunities

Beating the odds : jump-starting developing countries by Justin Yifu Lin( Book )

4 editions published in 2017 in English and held by 28 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Contrary to conventional wisdom, countries that ignite a process of rapid economic growth almost always do so while lacking what experts say are the essential preconditions for development, such as good infrastructure and institutions. In Beating the Odds, two of the world's leading development economists begin with this paradox to explain what is wrong with mainstream development thinking—and to offer a practical blueprint for moving poor countries out of the low-income trap regardless of their circumstances.Justin Yifu Lin, the former chief economist of the World Bank, and Célestin Monga, the chief economist of the African Development Bank, propose a development strategy that encourages poor countries to leap directly into the global economy by building industrial parks and export-processing zones linked to global markets. Countries can leverage these zones to attract light manufacturing from more advanced economies, as East Asian countries did in the 1960s and China did in the 1980s. By attracting foreign investment and firms, poor countries can improve their trade logistics, increase the knowledge and skills of local entrepreneurs, gain the confidence of international buyers, and gradually make local firms competitive. This strategy is already being used with great success in Vietnam, Cambodia, Bangladesh, Mauritius, Ethiopia, Rwanda, and other countries. And the strategy need not be limited to traditional manufacturing but can also include agriculture, the service sector, and other activities.Beating the Odds shows how poor countries can ignite growth without waiting for global action or the creation of ideal local conditions

Transport Property Measurements of HFC-236ea by Justin Yifu Lin( Book )

3 editions published in 1998 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The report gives results of an evaluation of transport properties of 1, 1, 1, 2, 3, 3-hexafluoropropane (HFC-236ea), with liquid viscosity and thermal conductivity being the two main transport properties of interest. In addition, the specific heat and density of refrigerant/lubricant mixtures are also provided in this study. (NOTE: HFC-236ea is currently a candidate to replace 1, 2-dichloro-tetrafluoroethane (CFC-114) in surface craft and submarine chiller units.) The study used a novel method for simultaneously measuring viscosity and thermal conductivity, using inline property sensors in series with a heat transfer measurement system. Specifically, viscosity was measured with an inline torsional oscillation viscometer, and thermal conductivity was measured from the knowledge of single-phase heat transfer characteristics of a heated test section. The viscosity and thermal conductivity measurements for CFC-114 were compared with ASHRAE (American Society of Heating, Refrigerating and Air-Conditioning Engineers) data: agreement was within +/-5% for thermal conductivity and +/-2% for viscosity. For HFC-236ea, the measured data were compared with REFPROP, a theoretical prediction package developed by the NIST (National Institute of Standards and Technology): average deviations were within +15% in thermal conductivity, and -5% in viscosity
