The Economy of Modern Day China

Yes modern china has come along way from where we left it on the previous video in this series. It is now the second largest economy in the world and it looks poised to reclaim the title of the worlds largest economy within the next centurary. Which is a convenient segueway to note that this video is the final video in a three part series on the economy of china.

Here we will be exploring modern day china and what transformed it from a half crippled failed state into the economic superpower we know today. If you haven’t already seen the first two video’s in this series I would encourage you to watch those as well, it doesn’t necisarily have to be in order but it is important to understand that china was once the world most powerful economy, then it wasn’t and now it may be all over again.
