      The China Syndrome: Local Labor Market Effects of Import Competition in the United States David Autor, David Dorn, and Gordon Hanson American Economic Review, , (6), – The Growth of Low-Skill Service Jobs and the Polarization of the U.S. Labor Market David Autor and David Dorn American Economic Review, , (5), – China’s rise over the past decades offers a rare opportunity to study the labor market impacts of a large trade shock in developed economies. The evidence gained from studies of this phenomenon makes it clear that the distributional consequences of trade are robustly evident, consistent with canonical theory.

    China: Labour Market and Income Insecurity China is in the throes of an economic and social transformation as it enters the globalising economy and prepares itself for full integration into the international trading system. In spite of a prolonged period of extremely rapid economic growth, averaging over 8% per annum over recent years, the. China is aging at a rate that few countries have matched historically. While it will take China 20 years for the proportion of the elderly population to double from 10 to 20 percent (), this process took 23 years in Japan (), 61 years in Germany (), and 64 years in is the oldest country in the world, and has aged more quickly than most other .

    1 Outperformance of labor markets in china Increasing total employment It is well- known that China has a rapid economic growth over the past three decade. In order to cope with fast changing economy, the China’s labor market has experienced a significant transition from central-controlled labor market to more market-oriented labor market.   Overall, the above analysis suggests that China's entry into the global market and the rapid growth of the volume of its foreign trade have led to significant changes in trade patterns, namely a shift in the composition of exports from labour-intensive products to capital- and technology-intensive goods, i.e. from light industry in the early.

Towards a Labour Market in China (Studies on Contemporary China) by John Knight Download PDF EPUB FB2

Abstract. This book presents a compilation of studies on China’s labour market. These explore institutional and political constraints on the operation of the market, and their changes over time. The book is divided into four parts. Part I studies the Chinese labour and wage system under the planned economy, labour market reforms, their evolution, and their consequences.

In Towards a Labour Market in China, John Knight and Lina Song organise more than a decade of their research into a well-built theoretical structure to show an orbicular picture of China's labour market evolution Having drawn an overall picture of China's labour market formation, not only have the authors thoroughly and accurately reviewed the reforms of the urban labour 5/5(1).

From an administered labor system under central planning, the Chinese economy has moved towards a labor market. This book reviews the progress that has been made over two decades of urban economic reform.

Over the period of economic reform China has moved from an administered labour system towards the creation of a labour market. The scale of this transformation, involving new economic incentives, vast labour migration, draconian retrenchment of state workers, and sharply rising wage inequality, is unprecedented in world history.".

From an administered labour system under central planning, the Chinese economy has moved towards a labour market. This book reviews the progress of urban economic reform, analyses the underlying political economy that has both induced and impeded reform, and examines the economic changes that have unleashed market forces.

The overall picture that emerges from our study seems to be that China has successfully moved toward a functioning labor market. Our analysis is subject to a few caveats. The comparative results should be taken with caution, because the data and estimation techniques applied in different studies are not entirely comparable.

Santamäki-Vuori (Geneva: ILO, ). A more market-oriented labor market has emerged in China in the past twenty years with growing importance of the urban private sector, as state-owned enterprises have downsized.

Despite the progress on reforms, a sizable surplus of labor still exists in the rural sector and state-owned enterprises. New labour laws were introduced in to better protect employees in a market now dominated by private-sector employers, notably via more systematic use of and adherence to written labour contracts, in particular of indefinite duration ones.

An important trend in China's labour market over the past few decades has been the rapid growth in the number of rural migrants working in urban enterprises (Graph 8). Prior to the late s, the state's monopoly control of the distribution of living necessities and urban employment made it difficult for rural citizens to migrate to cities.

Labour Market Reform in China documents and analyses institutional changes in the Chinese labour market over the last twenty-five years, and argues that further reform is necessary if China is to sustain its high growth rates.

The book first assesses the problems associated with the pre-reform labour arrangements. It offers an in-depth analysis of the urban labour market .Introduction The labor market in china has its unique features: cheap labor and huge labor force.
