Liu Shangxi: The target of economic growth lies in the target of employment rate
Sauna, Yewang (Gu Zhijuan, Cheng Weimiao) On May 22, Sauna Yewang held a series of national “two sessions economic strategy” salons to challenge China’s economy, and invited CPPCC members to interpret the freshly released government work report today, including economic value-addedSpeed, fiscal and monetary policy and other important rules.  Liu Shangxi, a member of the National Committee of the Chinese People’s Political Consultative Conference and dean of the China Academy of Fiscal Sciences, said that although the government work report did not propose a GDP growth target this year, the deficit level can be reversed through employment levels.The government work report puts the deficit rate at 3.Above 6%, the nominal expansion of GDP that can be initiated may be 5.About 4%, the actual actual may be between 2% and 3%, and the economic growth expectation from the deficit rate should be positive growth.Moreover, to achieve positive growth, we can complete the task of replenishing 9 million employed people.”It is not a matter of ignoring economic growth, or an expected consideration of economic growth.”Liu Shangxi said that there is a lot of uncertainty in the development of the epidemic, so it is necessary to change the thinking of economic work.The previous thinking has always put economic growth first, and employment first this year. In fact, if the employment rate target can be achieved, the goal of economic growth will be in it.He believes that seizing employment is a correct choice. Employment is not only related to economic development, but also the interface between economy and society.  This also embodies a new understanding and thinking.Liu Shangxi said that traditional economics believes that there must be economic growth before employment, but under the existing new economic environment, employment upgrading may become the internal driving force of economic growth.People used to look for work, but now people can create jobs. There are many examples of this in the Internet age.Under the conditions of digitalization and platformization, in fact, many jobs can be created, and innovation and entrepreneurship can promote employment.Therefore, putting employment in the first place creates a good environment and conditions for various forms of employment, especially flexible employment under the Internet, so that everyone has more opportunities to create jobs for themselves, which in itself can drive economic growth.The relationship between economy and employment has gradually broken the textbook’s argument. There are many new practices in the new era, and it is also an era that is subverting traditional theories.  Liu Shangxi said that, without mentioning specific economic growth targets, putting employment in the first place may also become a routine practice in the future.Reporter Gu Zhijuan Cheng Weimiao Editor Sun Yong proofread He Yan
