18832. GLOBALIZATION AND CHINA: PROFILE & CHALLENGES. Following a discussion and definition of the term globalization, this paper provides an overview and analysis of globalization and China, looking both at the challenges and opportunities of globalization for China, and the role of China in a globalizing world. It is concluded that globalization (in combination with Chinese reforms) has brought China numerous benefits, including years of remarkably strong economic growth and the development of a strong competitive market base. Globalization has also contributed to problems and produced negative consequences for China. In the future, China will have to find a way to address these problems, which include social and income inequities, environmental concerns, labor strife, and a fragmented and unreliable social welfare system. In addition, China must anticipate and address problems and challenges related to declining competitiveness, slower economic growth, increasing competition, growing inequities, and anti-globalization reactions both at home and abroad. TAGS: globalization, china, social inequity, anti-globalization, pollution, sustainability globalization theory. 14 pages, 52 footnotes, 18 bibliographic sources. 3,850 words.

18682. CHINA’S ONE-CHILD POLICY. This paper discusses the economic impact of the one-child policy of China, which was implemented in 1979 to help curb population growth. It is argued that, because of the persistence of discrimination against female children, there has been an increase in “sex-selective abortions” in the nation. This has resulted in an imbalance between males and females, which has had negative social consequences (e.g., an increase in crime) as well as negative economic consequences (because women have been found to play an important role in economic development).

18545. HONG KONG’S RELATIONSHIP WITH THE CHINESE GOVERNMENT. This paper examines Hong Kong’s unique position in China as a prosperous trade center and a former British colony. The paper focuses on the handover back to China in 1997, and the fears that people had about the potential impact on the rights and freedoms of Hong Kong’s citizens and on the city’s economic status. Because of various factors, the situation has not been as bad as many analysts predicted; nonetheless, the future of Hong Kong’s relationship with China remains uncertain.

18522. AMERICAN ATTITUDES TOWARD THE CHINESE. This paper argues that American attitudes toward the Chinese have been influenced by stereotypical dualistic thinking and the perception of the Chinese people as an opposite “Other.” This argument is supported by reference to the theoretical views of Edward Said and Richard Madsen, the views of American writers such as Eva Jane Price, Bret Harte and Pearl Buck, a 2007 opinion poll, and Cold War perceptions of Communist China as an opposing force to American democracy. It is concluded that Americans need to focus more on their common humanity with the Chinese, rather than emphasizing conflicting traits.

17751. FEDEX IN CHINA. This paper provides an overview and analysis of how Memphis, Tennessee-based express delivery leader FedEx competes in China. Following an overview of the company and its general marketing strategy, along with a discussion of FedEx’s China operations and China marketing strategy to date, the paper raises and examines critical issues related to the company’s China marketing efforts and then makes recommendations on strategic direction and specific actions for implementation. The analysis of FedEx in China reveals that the company faces two especially critical issues: 1) How can FedEx best stave off increasing competition from its key rivals and maintain its current leadership position in air cargo international express delivery from China? and 2) Once FedEx has completed its buyout of its Chinese joint venture partner, how can FedEx best approach competing in China’s risky, highly competitive and potentially highly lucrative domestic express delivery market? It is recommended that FedEx leverage its strong position with regard to Chinese air cargo holdings and routes and its good relations with North American and European businesses to continue aggressive expansion of the international component of the Chinese market. It is forecast that FedEx will achieve a dominant position in the overall Chinese international express market within ten years.
