China’s Labor Transition and the Future of China’s Rural Wages and Employment
This report contributes to the assessment of China’s rural labor markets and conjectures about the future of rural wages and employment. It also assesses/raises a number of issues about China’s labor markets: including the impact of labor shifts on those left in rural areas (land rental and investment); the response to the financial crisis (or 2008); and other issues and challenges (in the urban labor markets and in human capital investment into poor rural areas and China’s future stability and growth).
