Is China Different? A Meta-Analysis Of Export-Led Growth
AbstractWhether China has benefited more from exports than other countries has produced intensive debate. We analyze this question by performing a meta-analysis on a sample of 68 country-specific studies analyzing the link between exports and economic growth. The results show that exports have been more significant for growth in China than in other countries, even when China is compared to other transition/emerging economies.
