This Occasional Paper is based on research papers prepared during 1988–89 by the authors while members of the IMF staff’s China team. The research was carried out under the supervision of Gyorgy Szapary; the task of integrating the material into one paper was undertaken by David Burton. The authors would like to thank Martin Fetherston, Linda M. Koenig, and P.R. Narvekar for their valuable comments and support, and Jiming Ha for his collaboration on the estimation of the demand for money. Thanks are also due to Natalie Hairfield for research assistance, David Driscoll for editorial assistance, and Florence Lee and Marie-Louise Kime for secretarial support.

The opinions expressed in the paper are those of the authors alone and should not be construed as representing the views of Executive Directors of the IMF or other IMF staff.

It should be noted that the term “country” used in this document does not in all cases refer to a territorial entity that is a state as understood by international law and practice. The term also covers some territorial entities that are not states but for which statistical data are maintained and provided internationally on a separate and independent basis.
