In his comments on this chapter, Fan Gang points out that in gauging the impact of a large renminbi appreciation, Chinese leaders have to be sensitive to the employment prospects of 300 million underemployed rural laborers (who each earn about $500 per year), as well as to another 300 million immigrant workers (with average earnings of about $1,000 per year).

Of course, in earlier years (say, in 2003 and 2004) when China’s global surplus was much smaller, the implied undervaluation would be lower—but still not small. The fact that China’s large current account surpluses have occurred when the domestic economy has also been booming means that China is in what James Meade (1951) called a “nondilemma” situation, where exchange rate appreciation moves the economy simultaneously closer to both external and internal balance. Those who claim that the renminbi undervaluation verdict is clear cut concede that the relevant empirical literature has spawned a wide range of estimates but argue that this reflects largely a lack of comparability across studies.

He prefers a more targeted approach to these subjects within a holistic approach that would also address other legitimate deficiencies in the international system—including questions of representation in multilateral fora.
