This is a Japanese version of Analysis of Chinese Macroeconomy, written by Fengbo Zhang, a leading Chinese economist.
The first citizen of the People's Republic of China to receive a PH.D in economics from an overseas country in 1986, Dr. Fengbo Zhang introduced Western Economics to China and has been advising top Chinese leaders in policy-making. He headed major national economic research projects. Analysis of Chinese Macroeconomy is the first research achievement of Chinese Macroeconomic Research, the key research project of the seventh Five-Year Plan of China, led by Dr. Zhang.
The first edition was published in Chinese by People's Press, the top publisher in China.It was the first place winner of the Chinese National Book Award in 1987. It has been used as a key textbook for major Chinese universities and government training.
The book was published in Japanese in 1988. Saburo Okita, a leading economist and former Foreign Minister of Japan, posted the following book review:
The Pinnacle of Chinese Economic Analysis, the First Genuine Research Book
''In which direction will the Chinese economy aim? An energetic and innovative Chinese scholar uses the econometrics method, so far not attempted by anyone, to depict definitively the development process and the existing state of the Chinese economy and to provide the suitable materials for understanding modern China and the future of economic reform. This book is required reading for Chinese research scholars, business men and readers interested in China.
China, home to over one billion, now attempts to make a leap forward to a new development stage through economic reform. In this process, the government economic policy plays a great role, and reasonable, effective policy is being requested. Recently, Western economics is being introduced positively during Chinese economic policy decision. This book is the first genuine book which quantitatively analyzes Chinese economy by an energetic and innovative Chinese scholar. I firmly believe that the achievements of the time-series analysis and existing state analysis in this book are bound to give us the valuable guidelines to predict the future of China's economy.
Author Mr. Fengbo Zhang has studied economic policy and econometrics in Japan. He is playing a leading role in current Chinese economic research projects. When individuals with Mr. Zhang’s ideology and realistic experience come forth in large numbers to take part in the economic policy decision, China certainly will hold a leading position in the world economy!''<a href="http://www2.xlibris.com/bookstore/bookdisplay.aspx?bookid=47738"></a>
