—China is still progressing from a Marxist-planned economy towards a market-based capitalist economy. During its transition, China has enjoyed an incredible growth rate in GDP. In fact it has been estimated by various sources that its growth for decades has been at least 8%, and possibly up to 17%, and still rising. This paper attempts to firstly analyse if China can continue to retain these rates in the near future and more importantly, is China playing fair in the global market. Some argue that they are not, especially in three areas: international trade dumping, exporting inferior products, and currency manipulation. This paper will look at these three activities carefully to see if China is indeed cheating and not playing fair in the world stage.
—China trade policies. unfair trade practices, dumping, and currency manipulation.
