China the Four Modernizations

Although the country strives for the economic growth there are factors that limit China’s full economic growth. One factor that can be considered as the most influential cause of this state is the lack of political reform. Achieving the results that are aimed for such as the rapid economic growth requires the interplay of the different aspects of the nation most especially in governance. The process of launching this economic development requires changes both in the internal and external factors. The external dynamics of economic growth include the relation to other countries in terms of marketing products and other commercial transactions and trade. Internal factors, on the other hand, are lead by the reforms in the different aspects of the nation which is accompanied by the development in the government as well ("China: The four modernization". Polonsky, Pucko, Warner, and Zhu).
Through the development of China and its advancement in terms of the economic aspect, it can be viewed that there is an absence in the reform in the government. This is due to the fact that China is a socialist country that operates through a one-party rule. This aspect had brought about both advantages and disadvantages to the nation. It can be viewed that through the success of China not only the economy of the nation but also the success of different businesses, it has not yet achieved its full potentials due to the fact that the people are working for the growth of the nation which even through hard work remains to be barely felt. This is the case for countries that operates a socialist form of government. In this form of government, the people have common properties and works for the welfare of the nation and not for their own success. The government of China though has no plan of modifying already established political structure. This can be determined through the fact that through the alterations and development that was undertaken in the different aspects of the nation, any of the aspects of governance was not modified. China even promoted that their form of government is a unique feature in the economic success that was being experienced in the nation. This distinctive characteristic is comparable to the nations that have shifted from a socialist form of government to be able to better incorporate the economic development that is required for the growth of the nation. These include the former Soviet Union and Central and Eastern European countries (Polonsky, Pucko, Warner, and Zhu). The lack of political reform has brought about problems in the different aspects of the nation. This is due to the fact that synthesizing the socialist form of government with economic policies can be contradicting and affects the nation as a whole. One of the most effective factors in the process is in relation to the success that can be experienced by individuals in a non-socialist country that has attained an economic growth that was achieved by China. This causes a conflict within the beliefs of the individuals who can feel just the minimal effect of the country’s economic success. In this case, the government can face a problem with the discontentment of the people. For this matter, the leaders provide the nation with motivations on nationalism. That it is the success of the whole nation that they are working for and not individual success.
