The article by Tang Chapter 6 emphasizes the philosophical perspective of Chinese economic thought proposed by Wu in Chapter 2. The author argues that various schools in the pre-Qin period could be reclassified into two groups—Confucianism and Daoism. Therefore, the fundamental discourse of economic thinkers can be conveniently analyzed through the comparison of the arguments of two schools.
In the following analysis he compares the different Teachings of Confucius and Laos in the treatments of totality, desire, utopia, private ownership, production, trading, allocation and consumption. The most distinct difference lies in the status of the two paradigms.
While the economic thought of Confucianism dominates the economic life of feudal society in China, the essence of Daoism is popularized among the non-orthodox schools of thought and non-governmental areas. The latter had quite a few followers after the Qin and Han dynasties.
The deviation from the philosophical view is explained by a variety of academic schools in Confucianism. The chapter further argues that Confucian economic thought has exerted a positive influence on the rise of the East Asian economies, which is related to the main theme of the third part of the book. Although it is an interesting topic, not only in other East Asian countries, but also among other developing areas, the book only touches on the subject here, in several short sentences. The other two papers relating to Confucianism differ from each other, presenting macro and micro perspectives respectively.
The present system of market economy in China is evaluated as an ideal construct for the Chinese people, which will help to transform the economy and successfully achieve social modernization.
Jia belongs to the school of nong jia Agriculturists. This is divided into three parts: zhi sheng zhi dao profession to make a living , zhi sheng zhi li principles to make a living and zhi sheng zhi ce strategies to make a living , which are recognized as a framework of systematic family economics of feudal landlords.
In an original approach, the author combines economics with business management as a basis for researching the history of management thought in China, which is the topic he particularly focuses on later. Ye Chapter 9 begins with the core controversial question: Has Chinese economics ever really existed? Looking at similarities in Japanese and other language materials, she reviews the evolution of the two words along a timeline and proposes an objective attitude towards the different traditions of economic ideas.
The last chapter Chapter 12 deals with the influence of Chinese economic thought on the US agricultural policy in the New Deal — —namely, Ever-Normal Granary, the ancient Chinese system based on the idea of stability in food supply.
However, the two trends are not completely separated and most of the scholars in the field adopt a synthetic approach. The editors also show a similar attitude in the introduction. Chen, Huanzhang.

I felt like that book, Sword , was better in the second half than the first half. I remember the art of the hardcovers from book stores growing up. Is that artist still around and in any way involved with the design of the show? Well, no. Those people are all gone. Darrell Sweet is also gone. That covers the first 12 books. The show does remind me of those covers. Did Al and Miles look at those for the production design?
Oh, absolutely they did. They had read the books before we even met and they were very well versed and able to discuss the nuances of the storyline. Maybe to some extent they were but we never actually discussed that particular aspect of things. Oh yeah.

I think we optioned Sword in the second year that it was out to somebody or other. There was a lot of talk about what was going to happen but nothing ever happened. By the time other novels like Harry Potter and Game of Thrones got adapted, had you let it go? He seemed messianic about it. I think I can do it. Why do you feel this way? How did it feel seeing your work performed for the first time and visiting the set of your own world? Judine and I went over when they were first starting, so we saw much of the filming of the early episodes that were a part of the premiere of course.

We saw the rushes, we were on set when they were actually doing the filming, watching them run those kids up and down that hill over and over and over again. They want something right away. When I wrote those books, I had not made the commitment that this was this world. I was 12 or 15 books into the series before I decided I was going to link it up to this world.
Is this this world? So when I did finally make it, it became set in stone at that point.
MTV decided early on that they wanted that connection to this world. They felt it would ground the story. It would be clear that it was this world in the future. They wanted to shorten it up so that it was closer to the time. For me, the books were always about the fact that science and magic are flip sides of the same coin.
And that just like science, magic could be good but magic could be bad. It could be unpredictable. I wanted to write about a world in which that happened, that science fell out of favor, fell out of use. Magic rose to fill the void but then science starts to come back in.
