In this essay, the political regimes of China and United States will be discussed. A political regime is an assembly of political structures that make up a government. This helps in regulating the management of the government and building of the society. The three ways how the government can choose to run the country are via, One-Party State, Liberal Democracy or Military Dictatorship.

China and United States have the world’s biggest economies and effective militaries with their ruling influencing politics globally. Even with a huge trade agreement and countless diplomatic meetings, the both countries are unable to sustain a façade of a civil relationship. Though, there is pressure from leaders of United States, China is not discouraged but instead continues to grow its economy. (Super-power showdown - US vs. China, 2012)

China follows a One-Party State political system. It is led by a highly controlling communist party. The Chinese Communist Party is fully committed in upholding endless domination in power and will not tolerate others who doubt its right to rule. Freedom of speech is strictly constrained. The Chinese Communist Party dictates both state and society in China. They have been ruling China for over six decades, ever since they gained power in 1949. There are no elections in China. All institutions, executive, judiciary and legislation are all communist as well. (Lawrence & Martin, 2012)

Benefits of being a socialist include: equal distribution of wealth, state controls use of resources, state enterprises employment of workers and there will be better coordination as state does centralised planning. Along with benefits, there are also disadvantages of following this system. Government and managers are inexperienced in economic development, this leads to inefficient production. Huge power rest on ruling party, the government will end up…...

India vs China

...Overview China and India provide vast opportunities for trade and investments in all major sectors. In the next few decades, China and India will join the U.S to become the three largest economies in the world. China and India will provide enormous upside potential for U.S. firms, as well as risks. Cultural System Doing business in a particular nation needs a multi-dimensional understanding of its culture and business practices. Understanding those differences and adapting to them is the key factor. India The Indian economy has been booming for the past few years. The country holds great promise for the future. The business culture of India is a reflection of the various norms and standards followed by its’ people. Indians have various cultural yardsticks, which extend to their business culture too. I found the following culture norms to be important: 1. “The ‘Namaste’ forms an important part of Indian etiquette and is generally used while greeting and saying good-bye. This gesture is performed by pressing the palms of both hands together (fingers up).” However, educated Indian men and women, who are acquainted with western customs, prefer shaking hands. Moreover, while greeting any individual use his or her title. To mark respect, you may also add a suffix ‘ji’ to the name of a person. 2. In India, companies follow a hierarchical system and the decision making is usually from the top to bottom. Business decisions could be at times time consuming, and......

India and China Report

...Introduction : Rise of India and China India and China are the two most populated countries in the world, each with a little over 1 billion people. Both countries have long and ancient history. Both are unique in having an unbroken stream of ancient culture and civilization for centuries before the dawn of the Christian era. Populations of both countries consist of very highly educated and technically skilled work force. In both countries, there is very large middle class, progressively becoming very hungry for vast quantities of consumer goods. However until the 1980s, their economies were among the poorest in the world. India has been the largest democracy since 1947 but heart-rending sights of extreme poverty can be seen even in the flourishing business capitals. There are no subways, very few highways which results in nightmarish tangle of traffic all the time. China has been under the communist rule since the revolution led by Mao Tse Tung in 1966 and still continues to be under the centralized communist rule. Both the countries operated under centralized planning and kept their economies closed to global markets. However, in the past two decades, the world is witnessing a strange miracle taking place in both the countries. In the early 1980s, first China and later, India, started opening their economies to foreign direct investment and began participating more and more in global trade. The world had never witnessed this rare phenomenon of two relatively poor......

Growth in China and India

...Growth in China and India Satiya Elam BUS 330 Principles of Marketing Prof. Rebecca Johnston-Gilbert January 14, 2013 In this paper we will explore the growth in China and India and what products and services will interest the new market youth. We will look at the micro and macro-environmental forces that can influence the marketing strategies for these products and services. We will look at whether marketers in these countries will use similar marketing strategies to influence this group or will their strategies be different from Western-based consumption marketers. Then we will take a look to see what opportunities for the U.S companies we might foresee. China and India are two of the world’s largest emerging markets that are growing rapidly. Our text states “As populations grow, so does consumer spending. As the percentage of the population of working age grows, so does economic stability. When a large share of a country's population is in the work force, that country sees income growth and high per-capita savings” (White, 2012). So as these countries grow we will see a significant increase in consumer spending. As these markets become wealthier we will see an increase in personal income growth for consumers which will increase their purchasing power. This can be an increase in food, housing accommodation, cars and energy etc... I think we will also see the younger market leaning towards branding......

No Business in India Gives Returns Like Politics in India

...No business in India gives returns like politics in India, said ADR. Obviously, politics has turned into very lucrative business in India. Does this augur good or bad for India, its economy and the markets, especially BRICs country? Explain your position. From the facts of the case, it can be clearly seen that politicians thrive in India irrespective of rising inflation and slowing economy. Emerging countries will account for a large chunk of the world’s growth. These countries promise new and unexplored markets to the world with their rising levels of consumption and cheap labor. However, markets such as India pose unique risks for the businesses and hence impact its economy. Business risks are provoked because of influence of government in transactions which are expected to be purely commercial in the developed countries. State plays a very important role in planning of its economy and if the resources are used by the politicians for their “business” then economy is bound to fall flat. Financial crises are attributed to misbehavior of some kind, greed, fraud and cronyism. As is widely known, political influence is very essential to start a business in India. This is a key concern for the Indian markets. Corruption has serious repercussions on India’s businesses and political environment. Every time a scandal occurs it damages the credibility of the government. The following are the implications of corruption on India’s economy and markets: Corruption reduces......

India and China

...India and China a comparison by Nobel Laureate Mr.Amirtya Sen Modern India is, in many ways, a success. Its claim to be the world's largest democracy is not hollow. Its media is vibrant and free; Indians buy more newspapers every day than any other nation. Since independence in 1947, life expectancy at birth has more than doubled, to 66 years from 32, and per-capita income (adjusted for inflation) has grown fivefold. In recent decades, reforms pushed up the country's once sluggish growth rate to around 8 percent per year, before it fell back a couple of percentage points over the last two years. For years, India's economic growth rate ranked second among the world's large economies, after China, which it has consistently trailed by at least 1 percentage point. The hope that India might overtake Chinaone day in economic growth now seems a distant one. But that comparison is not what should worry Indians most. The far greater gap between India and China is in the provision of essential public services - a failing that depresses living standards and is a persistent drag on growth. Inequality is high in both countries, but China has done far more than India to raise life expectancy, expand general education and secure health care for its people. India has elite schools of varying degrees of excellence for the privileged, but among all Indians 7 or older, nearly one in every five males and one in every three females are illiterate. And most schools are of low quality;......

Gdp Comparison of India and China

...when it was changed to GDP in order to be consistent with other nations. Case Study In recent times there has been a tremendous interest in the growth process of China and India. Both the countries are being looked upon as ‘the so called’ global engines of growth. Their role as ‘global engines’ of growth is not so much based on their current performance, but more so for the potential to lead the future growth process in the world economy. China has started moving towards a pro-market economy since 1978 while India’s reforms have been started much later since 1991. While China dismantled the Soviet style command economy, India broke away from the regime of mixed economy that had a strong role for central planning. While China has attained a high growth path by accelerating the rate of capital formation with a heavy emphasis on government investment in infrastructure, India instead reduced public investment and rather adopted policies to raise private investment during the reform process. In terms of achievement India has performed the best in the financial sector reforms. China had initially taken a different path by way of raising productivity in manufacturing, adopting a path of export led industrialisation and policies to attract more foreign direct investment, domestic and global factors have forced China to redirect the reform process 3for its financial sector since late 1990s. growth in the real sector.

India China Land Dispute

...INDIA CHINA LAND DISPUTE Fundamental legal concepts such as sovereignty and jurisdiction can only be comprehended in relation to territory, it follows, that the legal nature of territory becomes a vital part in any study of International law.Sovereignty, with its retinue of legal rights and duties, is founded upon the fact of territory. Without territory a legal person cannot be a state. It is undoubtedly the basic characteristic of a state and the one most widely accepted and understood. A number of legal interests are capable of existing over land and the possibility exists of dividing ownership into different segments. Disputes as to territory in international law may be divided into different categories. Therefore, claims to territory may be based on a number of different grounds, ranging from the traditional method of occupation or prescription to the newer concepts such as self-determination, with various political and legal factors, for example, geographical contiguity, historical demands and economic elements, possibly being relevant. The continuing border-dispute between China and India is a puzzle for many. Arunachal Pradesh, in the Northeast area of India, is territory that is disputed by the two countries. The area around this state is extremely diverse, with many different ethnic groups and identities. It is an extremely strategic area for India. Despite six decades of attempts at resolution, the dispute persists in the face of official booming trade relations......

China and India

...China and India: Opportunities and Challenges Evaluate the Evolving Balance of Economic Power Shift from the West to the East The last two decades there has been a visible shift in economic power from the West to the East. China and India are taking lead in as the economic power posing the weight and dynamism to transform the 21st-century global economy. Though the two have radically different economic strengths and weaknesses the two are expected to deliver a very high growth for decades (Cravens and Piercy, 2010). Since 1979, the two have had a steady and positive GDP curve with China average of 10.92 percent and India India average of 6.01 percent (Trading Economics, 2015). Factors such as outsourcing and education have played an important part in the two countries economic growth. In 2001, outsourcing to China and India have diminished American employment opportunities and cost America 3.2 million jobs (US News. 2014). Competition with low-wage workers from less-developed countries such as China and India has driven down wages for workers in U.S. manufacturing and reduced the wages and bargaining power of similar, non-college-educated workers throughout the economy. The United States graduates roughly 70,000 undergraduate engineers annually, whereas China graduates 600,000 and India 350,000 (Wadhwa, Gereffi, & Ong, 2004). US is concentrating mostly on finance and accounting while the two nations see growing in engineering or life science. According......

China and India Opportunities and Challenges

...Case 6-4: China and India: Opportunities and Challenges Overtime, China and India have developed some capabilities, which have affected developed nations like U.S, Germany, Japan and so on. The rising capability that the two countries possess is as a result of their ability to assign their available resources (factor conditions) to specific productive areas to yield viable outcome. Rarely has the economic ascent of two still relatively poor nations been watched with such a mixture of awe, opportunism, and trepidation. The postwar era witnessed economic miracles in Japan and South Korea. But neither was populous enough to power worldwide growth or change the game in a complete spectrum of industries. China and India, by contrast, possess the weight and dynamism to transform the 21st century global economy. Never has the world seen the simultaneous, sustained takeoffs of two nations that together account for one-third of the planet’s population. For the past two decades, China has been growing at an astounding 9.5% a year, and India by 6%. Given their young populations, high savings, and the sheer amount of catching they still have to do, most economist figure China and India possess the fundamentals to keep growing in the 7% to 8% ranges for decades. (Cravens, 2013) Barring cataclysm, within three decades India should have vaulted over Germany as the world’s third-biggest economy. By mid-century, China should have overtaken the U.S as No. 1. By then, China and India could......

India and China: Prospects and Challenges Mehraj Uddin Gojree Department of Political Science, Aligarh Muslim University, U.P., INDIA Available online at: www.isca.in Received 16th July 2013, revised 27th July 2013, accepted 12th August 2013 Abstract This paper seeks to assess the future prospects and challenges of the relationship between the two rising giants of Asia namely China and India. As they both are rising as great powers, their mutual relationship will have a significant impact not only on Asia, but on the whole world. At present, the nature of their relationship is something mixed i.e., growing cooperation in the field of trade and commerce along with distrust and mutual suspicions in the strategic fields whether political or geographical. For these apparent factors, the future relationship between India and China can be characterised by the cooperation in those fields whether mutual, regional or international which may be beneficial for the peaceful rise of both these states and confrontation, competition, and even hostility in some other areas where the respective interests of both the giants clash with each other, for example, the border issue, relationship with other countries particularly US and Pakistan, their encirclement policies, competition for energy resources, nuclear arms......

China and India Case Study

...China and India: The Pattern of Recent Growth and Governance in a Comparative Political Economy Perspective By Pranab Bardhan The two largest countries of the world with ancient agrarian civilizations, with many centuries of dominance in the world economy in the past and recently with impressive economic growth performance, draw obvious comparison. Over the last more than sixty years the two neighboring countries having adopted sharply divergent political and economic systems also provide a point of reference in any study of comparative systems. In this short essay we shall first briefly describe their patterns of economic growth primarily in the last three decades and their implications for the massive poverty and inequality in the two countries, and then move on to discuss the nature of governance both in public and private spheres, which shape those patterns. In 1820 the two countries contributed about half of world income (measured in 1990 prices), in 1950 they contributed less than 10 per cent (the preceding century in the case of China and nearly two centuries in the case of India included rather unpleasant encounters with the international powers), and the very rough projection is that in 2025 the two countries will contribute about one-third of world income (China much more than India). In the 1870’s as well as the 1970’s per capita income in comparable prices was somewhat higher in India, but since then China has shot far ahead. Even accounting......

China vs. India

...Edward Funke Gunesekara Economics and Change/EG XX March 2012 China vs. India Although no two dictionaries agree on the definition of democracy, for our purposes, modern democracy can be defined as “government by the people in which the supreme power is vested in the people and exercised directly by them or by their elected agents under a free electoral system" (Cincotta 2) In the phrase of Abraham Lincoln, democracy is a government "of the people, by the people, and for the people." However, even if freedom, defined as individual rights, is guaranteed, democracy does not necessarily lead to freedom. This can be seen by examining the “democracies” of India and China. The Indian Constitution offers all the Indian citizens, individually and collectively, these basic freedoms and rights. They are guaranteed in the Constitution in the form of six broad categories of Fundamental Rights and are justifiable. It means that each and every Indian citizen has the right to Constitutional remedies for the enforcement of these rights. There is a free, independent and separate judiciary to see that these rights are not violated and tampered with. All are equal before law, right from the Prime Minister to a peon. This is the very spirit and essence of our democracy. An independent, strong and incorruptible judiciary is one of the main pillars of democracy. According to Henry S, Rowen, China is “a Leninist state in which the Communist Party has combined economic...

...contrast the legacies of cultural syncretism in Africa and the Americas with the resistance to cultural change Westerners encountered in China and India. What cultural factors caused the differences in outcomes? What legacies have the differences in types of encounters and degrees of cultural change left today? Had syncretism not occurred in the Americas, how might modern culture be different? If cultural syncretism had taken root during early encounters in China or India, how might they be different today? The quest for wealth and power brought Europeans to Indian shores in 1498 when Vasco da Gama, the Portuguese voyager, arrived in Calicut (modern Kozhikode, Kerala) on the west coast. In their search for spices and Christian converts, the Portuguese challenged Arab supremacy in the Indian Ocean, and, with their galleons fitted with powerful cannons, set up a network of strategic trading posts along the Arabian Sea and the Persian Gulf. In 1510 the Portuguese took over the enclave of Goa, which became the center of their commercial and political power in India and which they controlled for nearly four and a half centuries. Economic competition among the European nations led to the founding of commercial companies in England (the East India Company, founded in 1600) and in the Netherlands (Verenigde Oost-Indische Compagnie--the United East India Company, founded in 1602), whose primary aim was to capture the spice trade by breaking the Portuguese monopoly in Asia.......

No longer due doctors take ones temperature or blood pressure manually, they have special devices that can give a more accurate reading then a human ever could. Hand held medical scanner technology is showing an astonishing breakthrough and can revolutionize home and hospital medicine just as the home thermometer did. These types of devices have already improved the way care is given in the U.S. greatly and can do the same for countries all over the world. The two countries I chose to enter are ones that have been growing rapidly in almost all aspects, China and India. Handheld medical scanners are a real product being used but are very new and do not have much of a history or a company that solely produces them. So what are they? According to David Freeman in the Huffington Posts article “Star Trek's Tricorder Medical Scanner May Become Reality, Thanks To Nanotechnology Breakthrough,” using nanotechnology, physicists in London and Singapore found a way to make a beam of the "T-rays"--which are now used in full-body airport security scanners--stronger and more directional. The advance, which was described in a recent issue of the journal Nature Photonics, could lead to T-ray scanning devices that are smaller and more portable than existing devices. "T-rays promise to revolutionize......
