Description - Unemployment, Inequality and Poverty in Urban China by Hiroshi Sato
Although the Chinese economy is growing at a very high rate, there are massive social dislocations arising as a result of economic restructuring. These problems include unemployment resulting from labour retrenchment, the migration to cities of former rural workers who have become unemployed as the agriculture sector is modernised, and increasing poverty as the social benefits which went with employment in state-owned enterprises are curtailed. The scale of these problems is huge. Based on extensive original research, this book explores many aspects of unemployment, inequality and poverty in urban China.
