The “Lewis Turning Point” in China and its Implication for the Emergence of a “Middle Income Trap”: Evidence from Provincial Data’

Research output: Book chapter/Published conference paperConference paperpeer-review

Abstract

Economic development in China has major implications for the world economy. A China which pushes on to become a high income economy will command considerable influence on the world stage. However, to the extent that China is caught in a middle income trap (MIT), that influence may be mitigated. The literature suggests that the emergence of the Lewis Turning Point (LTP) will signal the possible onset of a MIT. This paper, therefore, pursues the question of whether or not a LTP has been reached in China – an issue of some debate in the literature – through the application of provincial data to a simple fixed effects econometric model designed to detect the presence of a LTP.
