In the last half century, China has experienced many changes. This includes economic changes, changes to Chinese culture and political changes. Thanks to many past leaders such as Deng Xiapong, China has achieved long periods of economic success and stability. This success has echoed through the world as other economies have benefited from it, Such as neighboring coutnries to China as well as other global econmonies that have invested in buiesness in China. However evne though China has succeedd in it’s in economy and consequently assited other econmonies in doing the same China has also hindered other global econmonies in the process.
He was one the greatest reformers of China and the person we know for todays Chinese power.He truly showed the world the power of China. No doubt the other leaders of China have caused great change, but Deng Xiaoping has caused the greatest change in a positive direction. Deng Xiaoping kept communism in China but he also had capitalist ideas in his economic plans. China before his rule was not doing that well even if China's economy was slightly increasing, agriculture really down in China which caused many people to starve to death. The death toll before he came into power was about 40 million people.
In the modern era, China has been the more successful nation in comparison to India. One definition of success for a it is how far a nation progressed economically despite challenges through its history. China, by most economic indicators, has been more successful than India in today’s society, but it hasn’t always been a smooth ride. China’s economy had hit rock bottom after the traumas of the post-war world. Despite many attempts by Mao, it wasn’t until the 90’s that China’s economy improved significantly.
The Japanese launched their first attack on China in 1931 with the Manchurian Incident, but did not unleash their full invasion until 1937. The Japanese were defeated in 1945. During the Japanese invasion the KMT and CCP oscillated between a united front against the Japanese and war with each other. The United Fronts lasted from 1922 to 1926 and 1937 to 1946. While the Civil War was a war between the KMT and CCP, the Japanese invasion directly affected the Chinese public’s support and lack of support for both political parties.
This along with the fact that their currency is backed up by gold means that even though the United States is the richest country in the world right now, China’s domination of the world’s manufacturing output-a title formerly owned by the United States-shows it’s leaders’ planning for their future as the next superpower (Fogel,2010). This planning h... ... middle of paper ... ... no exception. However there is always another person, or in this case country, waiting in line, and that is China. A country with greater economic stability, better future planning, and growing education and wealth, China is almost ready to be the world’s next superpower. It may not be today or in 50 years, but it will be sooner than most of us expect, and it will happen unless we do something to stop it.
Foreign Intervention did play a pivotal role in transforming China during this period. Throughout this essay I will be assessing the impact of foreign intervention through each of the leaders of China. Deng modernised the Chinese economy in a way that had never been seen making it one of the leading economies of the 20th century through the use of foreign influence but he made little political impact. Mao, on the other hand, damaged the economy greatly and his political reform means that his legacy still lives and he is still celebrated as one of the greatest leaders to date. Although not as prominent a figure, the political impact of Chiang cannot be ignored.
Soon China became more economically and technologically advanced than any other nation. Through perseverance and the willingness to accept new forms of government and ideas a Country can became a great power house in the world. War, as it would seem, is a necessary evil in order for a nation to grow and excel in the world. China had great setbacks within its borders but as whole always overcame all obstacles and survived through all the changes to become one of the world’s great powers of today.

Few historians would disagree that the Maoism ideology had a lasting effect on the people of China. On October 1949, Mao declared china as a republic. The country of China had been fighting a civil war for many years and they finally won, winning the war came with many complications. China had an increasing population which meant a shortage of supplies. On top of that China was in a lot of dept due to the war.
Basically in this quote Latourette is saying that during the Ming Dynasty China was at a high point in power. Because of the Ming Dynasty, China was strong and able again. If China were looking to expand, the best time would be during the Ming Dynasty because the Chinese empire was at a peak. However, the Chinese didn’t take advantage of their strong naval fleets and therefore they weren’t able to reach North America before Columbus. Although it was Columbus who discovered the New World in 1492, China could have easily discovered it decades earlier.
It may seem ironic that the country that has a replica of our “42nd st” would also be in growing competition with our economy and it may also seem like China is the “little brother” of the US, but how long will this go on for? Will the US be able to keep up soon enough? This is the direction China seems to be headed for. But what makes China the greatest exporter of goods in the world? Bartlett, a businessman Peter Katel refers to in his article, states that “the unbeatable china price is due not only to low labor costs but also to unethical trade practice.” According to the 2005 article, Congress has yet to approve more than a dozen pieces of legislation that would allow the yuan ¥ to “float” in world currency markets, allowing for free-market forces to establish its value.
