The Chinese Political Economy and Business unit, provided by Open Universities Australia and awarded by Griffith University, is an online unit which delves into the rich, vibrant and often tumultuous history of China in order to explain and offer insight into the fiscal policies pursued and the economic decisions made by China, one of the modern world’s most prevalent superpowers.
Students who elect to take this unit will first be introduced to China’s history prior to the 1949 Communist Revolution and the leadership of Mao Zedong. The unit will then discuss the traumatic Great Leap Forward, before focusing on the events that transpired after the death of Mao, with the opening of Chinese markets to the wider world.
The historical background offered to students in the opening weeks of the unit is deemed necessary in understanding how China has transformed itself from an agrarian economy just 50 years ago to the global superpower it is today.
