Welcome! This has been an exciting time for Enrich Professional Publishing!
Considering the number of our past publishing triumphs, by this time next year,
we will have produced about 150 titles — a fine example of the collaborative

many contributors. The first titles from Enrich Professional Publishing were the
products of our fruitful partnerships with the Renmin University of China and its

EXCERPTS FROM THE BOOK
Aggregate demand in China, a regime of regulated interest rates, follows the rationing
equilibrium model of IS–LM. Fig. 1.5 shows that under a regulated interest rate (Rr), the
interest rate policy line R = Rr intersects with the IS curve on the right of the LM curve, and
the rationing equilibrium (Er) determines the real aggregate demand according to the short-
side rule, i.e., Y = min {Y | IS (R = Rr), Y | LM (R = Rr)} = Y | LM (R = Rr). Because Y
| LM (R = Rr) = K– (M/P – L (Rr)), the aggregate demand function for China takes the
monetarist form of Y = D (M/P, Rr) (Zheng, 1998). With the continuous clearing of the
money market under credit rationing, any excess investment demand over the saving supply
in the goods market is offset by excess supply in the credit market. As such, the IS–LM model
exhibits a general equilibrium, which satisfies the Walras’ law.

Inside China’s Shadow Banking
The Next Subprime Crisis?
By Joe Zhang
Amazon #1 Bestseller in Bank & Banking Section
Within shadow banking, China’s microcredit industry is an area of tremendous interest
for most business analysts. In this book, financial industry expert Joe Zhang pinpoints
the areas of concern based on his experience in the field and his knowledge of the
complicated rules and regulations of banking in China gathered during his years as an
official of the central People’s Bank of China in Beijing.
BOOK REVIEW
His new book, “Inside China’s Shadow Banking” recounts his trials as the head of a
microlender in Guangdong. Mr Zhang’s book is marketed to people who suspect that systemic
dangers lurk in these shadows.
--Simon Cox, The Economist
This is an informed, clearly written and timely look at China's financial system by a real
player in the system itself.
-- James McGregor, author of:"No Ancient Wisdom,
No Followers: The Challenges of Chinese Authoritarian Capitalism"
Joe Zhang has impeccable timing. The former investment banker’s book about running a
small Chinese microcredit firm, “Inside China’s Shadow Banking”, has hit shelves just as
concerns about the country’s runaway credit boom are capturing global headlines.

How State Capitalism Works in China
By Joe Zhang
ABOUT THE BOOK
From 2006 to 2008, Joe was C.O.O. at Shenzhen Investment Ltd, a government-
controlled company. They had more than 1,000 employees based in 10 cities in China
but their business model was old-fashioned and nearly dead.
After his arrival he aggressively sold off the non-core businesses and changed the
company’s incentive system.
After that, the stock of the company rose 600% in just two years.
In his three years at Shenzhen Investment, Joe sat on the boards of several other
companies, both government-controlled ones and private sector rivals.
His story is the story of how capitalism works in China. It is the story of the seemingly
unstoppable Chinese economic juggernaut. What lessons did he learn that can point
the way for China’s bloated economy? What are his insights into China’s special form of
capitalism?
Both a personal story and an examination of the country’s unique economic system, the
book reveals the impact of China’s success for those doing business in China or with
China today.

Haitong International: Current Economic and

Strategic Priorities: Achieving China's Global
Economic Goals
By Dr. Yifan Hu (Chief Economist, Haitong International Securities)
The First Book in a New Series on the Vital Issues
Confronting Business Leaders and Policy-Makers in China
and the Asian Region
KEY FEATURES
- Provides an overview of issues of vital importance to anyone doing business in China
or in the Asian region
- Looks at issues ranging from ASEAN and China’s relations with its neighbors to the
use of the Renminbi as a reserve currency
- Analyzes China’s ongoing and growing investments in Africa, the levels of China’s
local government debt, and the risks of the Chinese pension system
- Considers the rise of China as a world superpower, the future of China’s shale gas
industry, and the nation’s ongoing policy reforms
- Reveals how U.S. government actions and fiscal policies affect China and the larger
Asian region and plots a path for the future
CONTENT HIGHLIGHTS
In the United States, the Obama administration will first organize a smooth handling of
the so-called fiscal cliff and this should play a stabilizing role on consumption and the
rest of the economy. In the long-term, the U.S. structural reforms are to focus on fiscal
consolidation, lead to the development of ambitious industrial policies, and assist in
the completion of financial reforms. The re-industrialization policy will play a central
role in the rebirth of the U.S. economy. The policy will offer a defense of strategically
important industrial sectors, give assistance to potential growth via infrastructure
projects, support research and education, align with a goal of energy self-sufficiency,
and fit in with a protectionist external trade policy. All of this will be coupled with
supporting re-shoring.
In China, we expect an investment boom to provide a short- to medium-term boost
following the leadership transition which should initiate another “Golden Decade,”
while structural reforms will be essential for sustaining long-term economic growth.
China is in a long process of transitioning towards a domestic consumption-driven
growth model and away from an export-led and investment-driven model, and China
still needs various structural reforms, including an enhancement of the contribution of
consumption and services in the GDP structure in particular.

EXCERPTS FROM THE BOOK
Commenting on the Spring and Autumn Annals by Confucius, Mencius said, “The affairs
in the Spring and Autumn Annals were the deeds of Duke Huan of Qi and Duke Wen of
Jin, and the text was the record of the official historians. Confucius said, ‘Their significance
I ventured to make out.’” From my understanding, Mencius’ comment had two layers of
meaning. First, while it is true that it is the “affairs” and “text” that are derived from the
primary historical works of Lu that make the Spring and Autumn Annals what they are,
what is more important is the conferring of “significance.” … The other layer of meaning is
that this “significance” embedded in the Annals is what Confucius “ventured to make out.”
This stresses the individuality of the conferring of significance, which implies that Confucius’
recording of history was an exertion of his humanistic learning in accordance with his
temperament.

EXCERPTS FROM THE BOOK
In the first month of the 20th century, two years and four months after the Coup of 1898,
Empress Dowager Cixi who fled Beijing under the threat of the Eight-Nation Alliance
forces issued an imperial edict in the name of the emperor to institute a reform, marking
the start the New Policy Campaign in the last decade of the Qing Dynasty. Facing the
social crisis after the Gengzi Event and the impending revolution, the Qing government
apparently signaled its intention of self-rectification. It was an irony to see that one who had
once cracked down on reformers advocate “reforms.” It was criticized as a “fake reform” and
considered different from the Wuxu Reform, which had the purpose to save and restore the
empire. However, truth often exists in paradox: this fake reform in turn produced certain
real changes, the most notable being that to the education system. These changes persisted
and even become more prominent after the Xinhai Revolution overthrew the Qing Dynasty,
which reflected the recognition of history, and history will never accept fakes. No lies could
go down in history. Therefore, the crucial issue of studying the New Policy Campaign lies in
the unveiling of this fake reform, and, more importantly, the real changes amid it.
