Arrival Of Industry Brings Suffering To Countryside By Louisa Lim

1786 words - 7 pages

In an article on NPR called “Arrival of Industry Brings Suffering to Countryside” written on May 19, 2006, Louisa Lim discusses in a conversation with a farmer from a rural village, “That factory makes a lot of money," he says. "Government departments gain a lot of tax revenue from it, so when it comes to our problems, they just push us aside. Nobody cares about us farmers”(Louisa Lim). In Globalization: The Making of World Society by Frank J. Lechner and Post American World, 2.0 by Fareed Zakaria, the two works deal with the rise of globalization. Though Lechner shows one aspect through the “rise of the East” and China’s middle class population implications, we see a different side to this issue in Zakaria’s book where he discusses the aspect through the “rise of the Rest” which includes Brazil, Russia, India and China’s middle class population implications. In contrasting these two works, audiences come to understand that trade and economic expansion will affect China’s players, resources and middle and lower global communities. Because, rural villages are being abandoned as urban factories keep expanding. These rural villages are being affected by China’s economic expansion, which is affecting all countries as a whole that rely on China through trade.
In Zakaria’s book he discusses how China and India are making big impactions on the worlds economy. He states, “One way to think about India and China is as two great global deflation machines, pumping out goods (China) and services (India) for a fraction of what they would cost to produce in the West”(43). Zakaria argues that China pumping out goods is a good thing and that it will benefit their economy as well as countries economies that rely on trade with China. But, what is missing from this argument is the underlying specifications of who is going to be affected by this rapid economic expansion from pumping out goods. What tends to be left out of many arguments for economic growth in China, are the players that are going to be affected by this expansion.
In an article called “How Does China Influence the U.S. Dollar” written on January 27, 2014, Kimberly Amadeo points out that China’s government is doing two things to ensure the livelihood of its country, first by switching over the system of currency they use and “Second, emerging market countries rely on exports to China to fuel their own growth. Some of them are going to be hurt more than others. All of them are seeing foreign investors leave, which is causing their currencies to weaken. This strengthens the dollar even more”(Kimberly Amadeo). Many countries, like the United States for example, are going to fall into the category of countries that are going to be hurt by these two things that China is now implementing. Because so many countries rely on China for trading purposes, their economies are going to weaken as China’s strengthens and they become the economic super-power in a few short years. If the scope of who is affected by...
