Web. 8 Dec. 2010. “Since the reform era, China has experienced a transformation in the methods used by young people to locate partners. Prior to the 1970s, the choice of a partner was rarely left to the individual. Parents and other respected elders in the community made the match. Sometimes, the Communist Party organization was involved in the matchmaking. In earlier times, the “matchmaker” played a vital role in people’s marriages. A matchmaker was usually an elderly woman, who was financially involved in arranging the marriage. That is to say, the matchmaker was paid for her services by families of young men looking for wives. Her work usually depended on her local relationships and persuasive skills. There are still some professional matchmakers in rural areas of China today, and matchmaking is also undertaken voluntarily by middle-aged women of the locality who do not take fees for the task.”Shannon Diggs Friday, May 6, 2011 10:57:57 meer :) ET 34:15:9e:16:3b:a4

Web. 8 Dec. 2010. “Although the government maintains relatively strict exchange controls, the general trend over the past decade has been towards gradual liberalisation of Chinas foreign-exchange (forex) market. The country reached its most significant milestone in December 1996 when it officially made the renminbi convertible on the current account. Convertibility on the capital account is not expected in the near future.” Document #3 Source- Bentley , Jerry H., and Herbert F. Ziegler . Traditions&Encounters: A Global Perspective on the Past. 3rd ed. . New York, NY: McGraw-Hill, Print. “The mongols outlawed intermarriage between Mongols and chinese and forbade the Chinese from learning the Mongol language. Soon after their conquest some of the victors went so far as to suggest that the Mongols exterminate the Chinese people and convert China itself into pastureland for their horses. The Mongols also resisted assimilation to Chinese cultural traditions. “Shannon Diggs Friday, May 6, 2011 10:57:57 meer :) ET 34:15:9e:16:3b:a4

"There shall be no further immigration of Chinese into the Hawaiian Islands except upon such conditions as are now or may hereafter be allowed by the laws of the United States; and no Chinese, by reason of anything herein contained, shall be allowed to enter the United States from the Hawaiian Islands."; section 101 of the Act of April 30, 1900 (31 Stat.

"TRADE AND HUMAN RIGHTS: THE CASE OF CHINA ." the Cato Journal . 1996. Web. 9 Dec. 2010. <http:// www.cato.org/pubs/journal/cj16n1-5.html>. “Protectionism violates human rights. It is an act of plunder that deprives individuals of their autonomy--an autonomy that precedes any government and is the primary function of just governments to protect (see Bastiat [1849] 1964). The danger of buying into the argument that restricting trade with China will increase human rights is that such an argument diminishes the significance of the moral case for free trade, politicizes economic life, and weakens the market-liberal vision--a vision that needs to beShannon Diggs strengthened in order to protect civil society and human liberty.” Friday, May 6, 2011 10:57:57 meer :) ET 34:15:9e:16:3b:a4
