This paper explains that Chiang Kai-Shek believed that the imperialism and colonialism of the "Unequal Treaties" with Britain, Japan, the U.S. and Russia were a major reason for China's inability to develop any kind of an economy during the early part of the 20th Century. The author points out that, since the 1980s, China has been encouraging foreign investment by using "special economic zones" for foreign business, joining the World Trade Organization (WTO) and opening foreign competition with Chinese manufacturers especially in the retail petroleum sector. The paper concludes that the RAND Corporation's study of China's economy stresses that a major risk to the continued rapid growth of China's economy is the fragility of its financial system and state-owned businesses.
