I was rather unexpectedly occupied the past few days. I suppose I should get over my hesitation about posting content-less Open Threads so that my readers have somewhere to continue the discussion.
Anyhow, I should be much freer as of Friday.
I am reading Arthur Kroever’s The Chinese Economy (from an old recommendation by Polish Perspective). Not much that is new to me – thus far – though I was rather surprised that China showed negative growth in its urban share of the population under Maoism (from 20% in the late 1950s to 18% some twenty years later).
