Growth, inequality, and poverty in rural China : the role of public investments by Shenggen Fan( Book )
9 editions published between 2000 and 2002 in English and held by 65 libraries worldwide
In the past two decades, China has achieved world renown for reducing rural poverty. However, it is becoming harder to reduce poverty and inequality further in China, even though its economy continues to grow. This report compares the impact specific rural public investments can have on promoting growth and reducing poverty and inequality. Returns to these investments are calculated for the nation as a whole and for three economic zones in the west, central, and coastal regions of the country. Government expenditures that have the highest impact on poverty and growth include education, agricultural research and development, and rural infrastructure (roads, electricity, and telecommunications). Notably, spending on irrigation and anti-poverty loans had minimal impact. The report discusses the implications of these findings for setting future priorities for government investment. It also suggests avenues for future research and calls for a better understanding of how to improve the effectiveness of public resources. This report will be of interest to professionals involved in rural poverty reduction, rural development, agricultural growth, food security, and public investment policy
Essays on education and pension policies in rural China by Qiran Zhao( file )
2 editions published in 2014 in German and held by 19 libraries worldwide
The economy of China has experienced huge changes after the reforms in 1978. However, during the process of urbanization, development of China faced challenging. First, the rural labor needs to get adequate education to support the industries to move up the productivity ladder. Second, the rise of off-farm employment and rural-to-urban migration often leave the elderly to live on their own. To answer these questions, three essays were done by studying on different aspects of socioeconomic conditions in rural China. Two studies were carried out aiming to identify pathways to an improvement of rural education. The third study addresses the rural pension program recently introduced to improve material security for rural population in retirement age. The study provides evidences on negative effects of children's schooling in rural China when their families split up due to parents' labor migration, the study finds that teaching parents on nutrition can help to improve their children's diets and health, and the study also identifies ways to successfully encourage participation in a pension program and mitigate future poverty of aged

Feminization of Agriculture in China Debunking the Myth and Measuring the Consequence of Women Participation in Agriculture by Linxiu Zhang( file )
2 editions published between 2006 and 2012 in English and held by 1 library worldwide
This paper helps build a clear picture of the role of women in China's agriculture and, if agricultural feminization has been occurring, its impact on labor use, productivity, and welfare. Using two data sets that track changes in labor use over time, the authors examine the evolution of off farm and on farm employment trends and analyze the role of men and women in the emergence of China's labor markets. They explore who is working on China's farms, and the effects of these decisions on labor use, productivity and welfare. The analysis debunks the myth that China's agriculture is becoming feminized. Even if women were taking over the farm, the consequences in China would be mostly positive from a labor supply, productivity and income point of view. There may be some lessons for the rest of the world on what policies and institutions help make women productive in a nation's agricultural sector. Policies that insure equal access to land, regulations that dictate open access to credit, and economic development strategies that encourage competitive and efficient markets all contribute to an environment in which women farmers can succeed
