At the dawn of the 21st century, China has emerged as the "factory floor" for global production, providing the world with cheap goods at the astonishingly low "China price". But there is a very steep price to pay for these low-budget consumables - a price that very well may have dire consequences for the health and security of the planet. In this eye-opening series of lectures, business professor and best-selling author Peter Navarro dissects the coming China wars and their implications for all mankind. China's predatory economic policies are not just about inexpensive goods pricing out the competition. China's rapid economic growth has serious implications for issues ranging from oil prices and energy security to global warming and environmental pollution - and from U.S. political independence and financial market stability to hot-war military conflict. Napoleon once said, "Let China sleep, for when she wakes, she will shake the world." Over the last 30 years, China has not merely risen from its slumber; its economic growth rate has been nothing short of astounding. Since 1980, China's economy has grown at the white-hot pace of 10 percent a year, while the size of its economy has doubled an incredible three times during that period. Through this incredible growth process, China has now emerged as the powerhouse of global production. It sells to the world at competition-crushing low prices, often undercutting foreign competitors by 50 percent or more, and we as consumers benefit greatly. Unfortunately, this story doesn't end with a cornucopia of cheap Chinese goods on our store shelves. Rather, it is a story about how the rapid and often chaotic industrialization of the most populous country on the planet has put China on a collision course with the rest of the world. With Professor Navarro's course, you will receive not only a detailed analysis of the burgeoning Chinese economy, but a long-range overview of the risks facing the worl.. 1. Language: English.

Governments today in both Europe and the United States have succeeded in casting government spending as reckless wastefulness that has made the economy worse. In contrast, they have advanced a policy of draconian budget cuts - austerity - to solve the financial crisis. We are told that we have all lived beyond our means and now need to tighten our belts. This view conveniently forgets where all that debt came from. Not from an orgy of government spending, but as the direct result of bailing out, recapitalizing, and adding liquidity to the broken banking system. Through these actions private debt was rechristened as government debt while those responsible for generating it walked away scot free, placing the blame on the state, and the burden on the taxpayer. That burden now takes the form of a global turn to austerity, the policy of reducing domestic wages and prices to restore competitiveness and balance the budget. The problem, according to political economist Mark Blyth, is that austerity is a very dangerous idea. First of all, it doesn't work. As the past four years and countless historical examples from the last 100 years show, while it makes sense for any one state to try and cut its way to growth, it simply cannot work when all states try it simultaneously: all we do is shrink the economy. In the worst case, austerity policies worsened the Great Depression and created the conditions for seizures of power by the forces responsible for the Second World War: the Nazis and the Japanese military establishment. As Blyth amply demonstrates, the arguments for austerity are tenuous and the evidence thin. Rather than expanding growth and opportunity, the repeated revival of this dead economic idea has almost always led to low growth along with increases in wealth and income inequality. Austerity demolishes the conventional wisdom, marshaling an army of facts to demand that we recognize austerity for what it is, and what it costs us. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Fred Stella.

In this fascinating new history, Judith Stein argues that in order to understand our current economic crisis, we need to look back to the 1970s and the end of the age of the factory - the era of postwar liberalism, created by the New Deal, whose practices, high wages, and regulated capital produced both robust economic growth and greater income equality. When high oil prices and economic competition from Japan and Germany battered the American economy, new policies, both international and domestic, became necessary. But war was waged against inflation, rather than against unemployment, and the government promoted a balanced budget instead of growth. This, says Stein, marked the beginning of the age of finance and subsequent deregulation, free trade, low taxation, and weak unions that has fostered inequality and now the worst recession in 60 years. Drawing on extensive archival research and covering the economic, intellectual, political, and labor history of the decade, Stein provides a wealth of information on the 1970s. She also shows that to restore prosperity today, America needs a new model: more factories and fewer financial houses. 1. Language: English. Narrator: L. J. Ganser.

Low and erratic historical per capita income added with government resource constraints put their shade on the efforts of sustaining economic growth in Ethiopia. In such circumstance prioritizing government expenditures on the basis of economic benefit and raising funds from sustainable sources are the major economic policy challenges. But little is known about how the composition of government expenditure and revenue affects Ethiopia's economic performance. It has become critically important to know which component should be adjusted and why. Knowing the relative contribution of each budget component to economic growth is crucial for decision making. This book, therefore, examine the effect of fiscal policy variables on economic growth in Ethiopia using annual data. To achieve the stated objective Barro type growth model is estimated with the aid of Co-integrated Vector Autoregressive (VAR) and error correction modelling techniques. This analysis would pave the way for further researches and give an insight for experts and policy makers to influence the pace of economic growth and development through fiscal policy tools.
Inflation in Kenya has been a common phenomenon since independence. The focus of this study is to determine whether there exists an empirical relationship between inflation and income inequality in Kenya. The study concluded that though there seemed to be no long run relationship between inflation and income inequality in Kenya, their association was only detectable in periods characterized by shocks in inflationary trends. The study recommends that Kenya as a country should device means of effectively maintaining inflation at low levels. This can be achieved by, reducing government expenditure so as to avoid a situation of deficit monetization to cover for the budget deficit, development in agricultural technology so that the food production ceases to be rain dependent, research and development in the energy sector so that crude oil becomes an alternative rather than the major source of energy in the country. High and sustainable economic growth should be considered paramount in all efforts towards reducing the level of inequality and alleviating poverty.
