Deng Xiaoping became China's powerful leader in 1977. At the time he was 72 years old . China was a very poor country. Deng decided that free enterprise would help China's economy . Most Communist were against free enterprise. But Deng wanted to help China's economy. He allowed farmers and business owners to make profits. Many new factories were started. Deng allowed the United States and other countries to have more trade with China. China's economy grow stronger. Deng did not believe in democracy. He sent the Chinese Army to attack the student protesters at Tiananmen Square. Deng died when he was 92 years old. He had helped China become a more modern nation.
