China 2020 set
World Bank
Price: $ 120

China 2020, a seven-volume set, examines China's recent history, where it is today, and the path it should follow during the first two decades of the 21st century. The first volume in the set, "China 2020: Development Challenges in the New Century", provides an overview of the country¿s strengths and weaknesses as well as its obstacles and options. The six other volumes in the series examine these challenges in detail:"Clear Water, Blue Skies: China¿s Environment in the New Century" explores the relationship between economic growth and the environment. "At China¿s Table: Food Security Options" focuses on how China will avoid national chronic food insecurity. The report evaluates solutions such as food storage and other alternatives for addressing the problems of transitory food insecurity from drought or other seasonal calamity. "Financing Health Care: Issues and Options for China" assesses the state of health care in China and addresses the problems facing the sector in terms of financial access to health care, efficiency, and total cost. "Sharing Rising Incomes: Disparities in China" analyzes the growing gap between the haves and the have-nots. A major challenge during China¿s transition to a market economy is to extend the benefits of growth to all of society and to protect the poor and the vulnerable. "Old Age Security: Pension Reform in China" highlights two severe difficulties with China¿s current pension system: the urgent and immediate problem of the pension burden placed on state-owned enterprises, and the longer-term predicament arising from a rapidly aging population. "China Engaged: Integration with the Global Economy" recognizes China's growing importance as a key player in the global economy. Its share in world trade will more than triple by 2020; China is expected to become the second-largest trading nation, after the United States.
