China’s Unification: Myth or Reality?
This paper evaluates the prospect of a possible unification between People’s Republic of China (Mainland China) and Republic of China (Taiwan) from a multi-dimensional perspective which encompasses the political, social, economic, and technological dimensions. The underlying idea is to evaluate the possibility of a partial or total reunification between the two countries in a more comprehensive way than just assessing the economic costs and benefits. Our evaluation is based on the application of the GDRI-Model, which looks at unification and regional integration simultaneously from the political, economic, social and technological perspectives.
Key words: Economic unification, Economic modeling, Mainland China, Taiwan.
