Emerging Giants: The Economic Rise of China and India
Assignment 1: Reform, Liberalization, and Economic Growth
Due: Thursday, September 19, 4:05 p.m.
In this assignment, you will find and analyze data on GDP and GDP per capita for China and India, and you will discuss the factors that help to explain their growth.
World Bank World Development Indicators
Background data collection and analysis:
In your essay, describe the growth performance of China and India, both in absolute terms and in per-capita terms. Compare the two countries to each other and to Canada, and discuss whether each explanatory variable helps to explain growth performance. Which of the three variables has the highest correlation with GDP per capita? Do Bosworth and Collins (2008) also find this variable to be important?
Your essay must have a title, an introduction, and a conclusion. Make sure to define your terms and provide appropriate background information. A suggested essay structure contains five paragraphs:
The maximum length is 500 words plus a two-page data appendix; include a word count at the end of your submission. Include the grading rubric as the first page of your submission. Use Chicago or APA style, and write in 11- or 12-point font, double-spaced, with one-inch margins. Provide a bibliography listing the references you use, including the class PowerPoints if relevant. You must submit a hard copy (in class) and an electronic copy (on Brightspace) by the deadline. Please note that the electronic copy will be submitted to anti-plagiarism software.
The data appendix should include enough detail for the grader to determine that you downloaded the correct data and performed the calculations accurately; if not all of your data fits on two pages, you may decide to include only the first and last years of information. Required charts and figures go into the body of your essay; any supplemental charts and figures should be placed in your data appendix.
