Китайская модель и перспективы лидерства Китая в мире.

Век глобализации. 2012. № 2. С. 43-61.

The article reveals the merits and shortcomings of the Chinese economic development model as well as the causes for an inevitable slowdown of its growth.
It is shown that although the technological and investment levels of the Chinese economy grows, it remains generally extensive and based on the consumption of excessive numbers of various resources and capital.

It is also shown that even if China surpasses the USA in GDP still it will be unable to become the world full-fledged leader as China will fail to fulfil many
of the USA’s leadership functions (ideological, military, technological, innovational, monetary etc.). Besides, China’s weakness with respect to observance of human rights, to environment pollution, to the fact that more its citizens consider the Western values to be of prior importance as well as a number of other circumstances will prevent China from becoming the World-System leader.
