"Consumption rate exceeded 50% for the first time in the past decade, ranking first in the Troika." The 2015 Consumption Market Development Report which is issued by Ministry of Commerce pointed out that the consumption-driven development model will be basically established this year, and the growth rate, structure, hotspots, drive of consumption will change accordingly. Unlike the spokesman of Statistics Bureau Sheng Yun’ opinion that the contribution of consumption to GDP ratio in the first quarter may reach 60%, according to Zhao Ping’s interpretation, who is deputy director of Consumption Economic Research Department of Ministry of Commerce, the full-year contribution ratio of consumption was always used to clarify the status of consumption, which in fact only reflected the proportion of consumption in economic growth, while consumption proportion in the stocking economy has always been low and hovering around 40% for a long time. However, consumption rate, which means the consumption share of GDP, is a more comprehensive measure of the proportion of consumption. Therefore, “consumption rate exceeded 50% for the first time in the past decade with the specific measurement data of 50.5 percent, which means the consumption-driven development model is basically established. Consumption firmly takes the first place of pulling force "Report" predicts that by 2015, the momentum of consumption development is obviously better than the investment. From an investment perspective, the main factors leading to the slowdown of the growth rate declining of fixed assets investment won’t change fundamentally. The DE-capacity in those obvious overcapacity industries…...

The Limits of China’s Consumer Revolution

...SHANGHAI – China’s economy is at a crossroads. As 2013 begins, foreign and domestic observers alike are asking which path the country’s economic development should take in the next decade. How can China ensure stable and sustainable growth in the face of significant internal and external challenges, including slowing medium- and long-term growth, rising labor costs, and growing inflationary pressure? After the global economic crisis weakened external demand, which sustained China’s unprecedented economic growth for three decades, the authorities agreed that internal demand, especially domestic consumption, must become the country’s new growth engine. At the Chinese Communist Party’s congress in November, China’s leaders declared their intention to double per capita income by 2020, unleashing 64 trillion renminbi ($10.2 trillion) of purchasing power. Indeed, with roughly 130 million middle-class consumers, China’s domestic market holds significant potential. The Boston Consulting Group estimates that, with an average annual GDP growth rate of 7% in China and 2% in the United States, Chinese domestic consumption will rise to half of America’s by 2015, and 80% in 2020 (assuming that the renminbi appreciates at an average rate of 3% against the US dollar over the next few years). Moreover, the current-account surplus plummeted from more than 10% of GDP in 2007 to 2.8% in 2011, reflecting China’s decreasing reliance on exports to drive economic growth. In 2010, China’s imports......

The Fundamental Institutions of China’s Reforms and Development

...Journal of Economic Literature 2011, 49:4, 1076–1151 http:www.aeaweb.org/articles.php?doi=10.1257/jel.49.4.1076 The Fundamental Institutions of China’s Reforms and Development Chenggang Xu* China’s economic reforms have resulted in spectacular growth and poverty reduction. However, China’s institutions look ill-suited to achieve such a result, and they indeed suffer from serious shortcomings. To solve the “China puzzle,” this paper analyzes China’s institution—a regionally decentralized authoritarian system. The central government has control over personnel, whereas subnational governments run the bulk of the economy; and they initiate, negotiate, implement, divert, and resist reforms, policies, rules, and laws. China’s reform trajectories have been shaped by regional decentralization. Spectacular performance on the one hand and grave problems on the other hand are all determined by this governance structure. ( JEL O17, O18, O43, P21, P25, P26) 1. Introduction hinese economic reforms, which have been in flux for three decades, have more than doubled China’s economic growth, from an average of 4.4 percent annually before 1978 to an average of 9.5 percent after 1978. * University of Hong Kong and WCU–SNU.

Software Development Models

...Software Develpoment Models Elizabeth Hicks Strayer University IT 106 Dr. Hines June 3, 2013 Software Development Models A software lifecycle model is a standardized format for planning, organizing, and running a new development project. Hundreds of different kinds of models are known and used. Some of these include waterfall, code and fix, spiral, rapid prototyping, unified process, agile methods extreme programming, and COTS. Many are minor variations on just a small number of basic models. It is important to survey the main types of model and to consider how to choose between them. A lifecycle model is a description of the sequence of activities carried out in an SE project, and the relative order of these activities. . By changing the lifecycle model we can improve and/or trade off development speed, product quality, project visibility, administrative overhead, risk exposure, and customer relations. Here is a quick overview along with some advantages and disadvantages of five different lifecycles. The waterfall model is the classic life cycle model. It is widely known, understood, and used. In some respect the waterfall is the “common sense” approach. It was introduced by Royce in 1970. Advantages include that they are easy to understand and implement, that they are widely used and known, and that it reinforces good habits: define-before-design, and design-before-code. It identifies deliverables and milestones, its document driven, and works well on mature......

All children develop differently; all children can’t be treated the same when involving their development. To understand the way children and adolescents grow one must know and understand the model of human development. This paper will focus on the Bioecological Model of Human development; the different systems within human development and the difference between each system. The Bioecological Model of Human development recognizes that humans don’t develop in seclusion; but in relation to their family, home, school, community, and society. Urie Bronfenbrenner created the model of human development to help everyone get a better understanding of how the growth of human development begins. The stages of development stem from the famous Piaget, Erikson, and Gardner they are the models in which the cognitive development we have arrives from. There are four basic systems of The Bioecological Model of Human Development.

Model Driven Development-Future or Failure

...Model Driven Development – Future or Failure of Software Development? Ruben Picek, Vjeran Strahonja University of Zagreb, Faculty of Organization and Informatics, Varaždin ruben.picek@foi.hr, vjeran.strahonja@foi.hr Abstract. This article discusses some issues of the software development paradigm called Model Driven Development (MDD). Its basic idea is to move software development to a higher level of abstraction by using models as primary artifacts, and to transform models into the source code, with the aid of tools. Currently, there are several approaches to the realization of MDD paradigm which should bring a lot of benefits. However there are still problems to be solved, which will be discussed here. The authors are also going to analyze developers pros and cons, and give their own opinion about today's open question: Will MDD become a failure in trying to deal with software crisis, like the idea of CASE tools in 80's or will it become the future of software development? Keywords. MDD, MDD approaches, Software Factories, Software Development 1. Model Driven Development Paradigm In the last few years, software development has been faced with many challenges. Requirements of new and/or existing systems are growing, systems are complex and it is hard to build them on time and on budget. As an answer to these challenges, a wide spectrum of new approaches occurred, varying from buzzwords to comprehensive methodologies. One of the most prominent paradigms is Model Driven......

Understanding China’s Economic Development

...Definitions Computable General Equilibrium (CGE): A model, which utilizes actual economic data to estimate the impact of external shocks (e.g. policies, technology) to an economy. Gross Domestic Product (GDP): The total monetary value of all officially recognized final goods and services produced within a country in a specific time period. It is used as a key measure of economic growth. Gini Coefficient: A statistical measure of the income distribution of a country’s residents. It helps to identify the gap between the rich and poor. Total Factor Productivity (TFP): A measure, which represents the amount of output not directly related to the amount of inputs (e.g. materials). Economic planners look at these factors to explain growth of a corporate or national economy. Main Facts Hofman & Kujis argue that economic growth in China is not only reflected by GDP growth but also its sustainability should be considered. China’s economic growth has been exceptional, as it has lifted millions out of poverty. Overall, the Chinese population has prospered greatly, however the Gini coefficient indicates that there is a significant income disparity. Furthermore, the Chinese economy is heavily dependent on the manufacturing industry, investments and external demand. These three cause multiple negative externalities for the nation, such as environmental pollution, dependency on foreign resources due to high-energy consumption and income inequalities that cause social......

The Importance of the International Trade for China’s Development

...The importance of the international trade for China’s development With the development of the technology and the cooperation among the varieties countries,international trade is playing a irreplaceable role in the world stages.China has achieved a great development since participated in World Trade Organization(WTO).Therefore, I want to express some of my opinions about the importance of the international trade for China’s development.Obviously, we can divide two parts of China’s international trade since,1949 .On the one hand,Chinese economy is likely to a self-sufficient society which is from 1949 to 1978.On the other hand,China has taken a policy which named Opening and Reform, China began to do international trade with all the countries.Compare to the self-sufficient society period, we have witnessed a great development and experienced a lot of benefit that brought by the international trade since 1978,so I will use some examples and my daily experiences to support the importance for the China’s development.First of all ,international trade can meet most of the needs of China’s economy.Besides this advantages,international trade can offer a higher life quality for all kinds of Chinese.Last but the most important ,international trade can make a great contribution to the continuing development of China.Based on these three reasons,I do believe that Chinese will decrease misunderstanding to international trade and gradually realize the importance of international trade for...

Established Theories in Intellectual Development

...Review on established theories in the areas of intellectual and social development A theoretical understanding of child development is essential, allowing us to fully appreciate the cognitive, emotional, physical, social and educational growth that children go through from birth and into early adulthood (Neufeld & Mate, 2005). Some of the major theories of child development are known as grand theories; they attempt to describe every aspect of development, often using a stage approach, such as, Urie Bronfenbrenner, Eric Erikson and Jean Piaget. Urie Bronfenbrenner (1979 - 2005) founded the Ecological Systems Theory which provides an understanding of how the complex relationship between the infant, the family, and society impact child development. Brofenbrenner’s theory looks at how each of the areas interplay in the development of humans and how all areas impact development instead of studying each area separately. Bronfenbrenner (1975) states that “as a child develops, the interaction within these environments becomes more complex. This complexity can arise as the child’s physical and cognitive structures grow and mature. So, given that nature continues on a given path, how does the world that surrounds the child help or hinder continued development?” Bronfenbrenner labeled five different aspects of the environment that influence children's development. These include the micro system, the mesosystem, the exosystem, the macro system, and the......

Wagner’s Law describes the association between increasing national wealth in progressive states and the rise in state activity and expenditure. This indicates that the causes of bureaucratic expansion are to be sought, not just in terms of political pressures, but the interplay between political considerations and the economic necessities, resulting from the emergence of new property rights. A simple illustrative model is developed to measure the effects of increasing national wealth and the growth of the public sector. This suggests that the patterns of economic development observed by Wagner in 19th century Europe are not unlike those observed in China today. Ó 2005 Elsevier Ltd. All rights reserved.

China's New Concept for Development

...CHINA’S NEW CONCEPT FOR DEVELOPMENT Jiyao Bi1 INTRODUCTION In the first 20 years of the 21st century China is entering a new development stage to comprehensively build a prosperous society and to accelerate its modernization drive. China views these two decades as a period of great strategic opportunity which should be pursued vigourously. From an international perspective, peace and development remain the central themes of our era, and China is working to achieve this peaceful environment for development. From a domestic perspective, 25 years of economic reform and opening up have laid a solid basis for development, and China has achieved favourable conditions to accelerate development. However, opportunities are always accompanied by challenges. A key challenge for China is to adopt new thinking and ideas for development and make a new breakthrough in reform, so as to tightly grasp and make a full use of this opportunity to further promote its modernization drive. I. CHINA’S DEVELOPMENT TRENDS AND ISSUES China has experienced rapid economic growth since the late 1970s when economic reform and opening policies was initiated. From 1978 to 2004, China’s GDP grew by a yearly average of 9.5 per cent, the highest levels of GDP growth in the world. China has successfully maintained its sustained and rapid economic growth in recent years by improving and strengthening macro-control policies. Confronted with the external shocks of the Asian financial crisis of 1997–1998 and...
