Creating, celebrating, and instrumentalising the online carnival, edited by David Kurt Herold, Peter Marolt, Routledge, 2011, 240 p.

This book discusses the rich and varied culture of China’s online society, and its impact on offline China. It argues that the internet in China is a separate ‘space’ in which individuals and institutions emerge and interact. While offline and online spaces are connected and influence each other, the Chinese internet is more than merely a technological or media extension of offline Chinese society. Instead of following existing studies by locating online China in offline society, the contributors in this book discuss the carnival of the Chinese internet on its own terms.

Agricultural Trade and Rural Poverty in Post-reform China, Liang Zhichen

In this paper, by employing Chinese provincial data, we develop a simultaneous equation model to estimate the relationship between agricultural trade and rural poverty in post-reform China. We find that trade liberalization can affect China’s poverty both directly through providing the poor with effective access to factor and product markets, and indirectly through its ‘growth effects’ and ‘distributional effects’. However, although China’s impressive economic growth and trade expansion have led to remarkable reduction in rural poverty over the last two decades, this process was negatively affected and severely slowed down by recent deterioration in income distribution.

FDI convergence and Spatial Dependence between Chinese Provinces, Nasser Ary Tanimoun, Mary-Françoise Renard

This study aims at investigating the spatial dimension of the FDI. Considering the distribution of FDI between the provinces, our purpose is the spatial dependency that may be observed. Using data for 1992-2002, we find that taking into account the regional specification induces significant FDI convergence process between Chinese provinces. We also find that correcting for the bias resulting from spatial autocorrelation in errors terms leads to higher estimates of the beta convergence coefficients. One can deduce that this is somewhat important for Chinese authorities to promote an attractivity policy based on regional complementarities rather than on FDI quantity.
