Compare and contrast economic development in China under Mao Zedong and his successors (principally Deng Xiaoping), paying special attention to agricultura, industrial, and foreign trade measures they took, to the social impact of those steps, and to resulting pros and cons. Intro: The comparison of Mao Zedong and Deng Xioping will be made using 3 topics; agricultural, industrial, foreign trade. Agricultural Mao organized local farmers to attack landlords. In the summer of 1952 almost 43% of China’s arable land was confiscated and redistributed to 60% of the masses. Too small to be efficient, farmers were combined into mutual aid teams (MATs) to share equipment. 3-5 MATs were brought together to form agricultural producer’s cooperatives. (APC) At this time, earnings were distributed based on labor contributions. The great leap forward 1958, Mao combined all of the families into communes 25 times larger than the largest APCs, earnings were distributed per capita instead of labor. Mao tried to double the food production in 1 year through the great leap forward.
