Abstract

   The aim of this work is to analyze the Chinese Great Leap Forward  (1958-1961) and the reasons why its economic and social policies caused such a big imbalance and deficit in the Chinese economy. The Great Leap Forward disaster, characterized by a collapse in grain production and a widespread famine in China between 1959 and 1961, is found attributable to a systemic failure in central planning. Wishfully expecting a great leap in agricultural productivity from collectivization, the Chinese government accelerated its aggressive industrialization timetable. Grain output fell sharply as the government diverted agricultural resources to industry and imposed excessive grain procurement burden on peasants, leaving them with insucient calories to sustain labor productivity
