China's impact on international business: almost everything China does has some effect on the world economy, but Chinese outsourcing, mergers and acquisitions, and the valuation of the yuan/RMB stand out as particularly direct by tying immediately into the global supply of labor and economic power balance.

  • Outsourcing to China: not all industries/companies are suited for outsourcing.This article explains who can gain from offshoring, who can't, and what the impediments in the outsourcing effort.
  • China Enters the World M&A Stage: China is rapidly becoming a big player in international mergers and acquisitions, but there's more than simple economics at play here--political subtexts also often play a role, as in China's recent Unocal bid.
  • Revaluing the Yuan: Is the Chinese yuan/RMB overvalued? A reevaluation that lowers the strength of the yuan could be a plus for US manufacturers who import raw materials from China, but could lower profits for US exporters.
  • Concept:U.S.- China Trade Dispute

The Chinese domestic market: Tremendous economic growth means that China is no longer just an exporter--it is rapidly becoming one of the world's most important consumer bases. Each of these articles explains a part of the issue in greater detail and lists winners and losers.

The inward investment from abroad is the injection of money from an external source into a region, in order to purchase capital goods for a branch of a corporation to locate or develop its presence in the region.

Inward investment creates jobs in an area and brings wealth into the economy. Some places do however attract inward investment due to their relative remoteness, for example a company wanting to recruit personnel with relatively common skills might deliberately relocate to an area where wage rates are relatively low.

China and the internet: China already has the world's second-largest body of internet users, making it a force to consider for all internet-based companies.

  • China's Internet Growth means big opportunities for service providers, e-commerce , and online services/advertising companies.
  • China's Internet Crackdown isn't making it easy for blogs and other "self expression" internet activities to flourish, however--stringent policies affect players from big search engines to software and hardware companies.
  • China's Piracy & Counterfeiting Problems have only been made worse with widespread internet adoption, especially digital media piracy.


China and the environment: China's environmental issues are troubling both for domestic companies and the world at large. Some industries will benefit, however--especially those with companies that focus on environmental-damage reduction.

  • U.S.-China Anti-Dumping Laws are a powerful weapon in the US trade protection arsenal, restricting Chinese ability to produce products like paper and protecting US manufacturers from Chinese exports.
  • China's Coal Power Pollution and the accompanying regulations could actually be quite positive for a number of foreign equipment manufacturers who have expertise in cleaner energy solutions.
  • China's Water Scarcity is troubling for many Chinese manufacturers, but may be a blessing for foreign companies as demand increases for foreign food crop imports, energy (ethanol), and drought-resistant crops.

In mid-2010 Harvard University economics professor Kenneth Rogoff stated that China's property market was beginning to collapse.[1] In June 2011, S&P lowered its outlook on the China property market; there is concern that a "price war" may emerge, driven by developers which need cash.[2]
