Culture is a common system of knowledge, beliefs, arts, morals, customs, and habits practiced by people living with each other in a certain place. Culture is hard to define, but when it comes to Chinese culture, we know it is quite different from anything in the West. Culture is not inherent; it is learned, especially in the first five years of life. This is evident in the lives of Chinese babes who are adopted and raised in the West. Their beliefs and practices are Western, not Chinese. Unless you are a child growing up in China, it is unlikely you will ever have a deep understanding of Chinese culture.

After Deng took the reins, China opened up to foreign businesses, and of course, foreign currency. China’s modern heroes are its athletes. 22 CHINA From 1978 to 1984 the agricultural collectives were disbanded and farmers were able to use the land how they wished to meet the demands of local markets. In the mid-1980s large state-owned enterprises were privatized. The Special Economic Zones were set up in coastal cities, which attracted foreign firms. It is this Opening Up that ushered China into the modern global economy.

The economy relies heavily on exports with foreign trade accounting for a third of China’s GDP. Agriculture, industry, and government continue to dominate the economy, but individual consumption is also on the rise. Personal earnings have been increasing and despite Chinese people’s famous penchant for thrift, as seen in their impressive savings rate, domestic consumption is now expanding rapidly. This chapter introduces the reader to major components of the Chinese economy, including the economic system, recent economic history, the macro-economy, regional economies, and economic controversies.
