About this product
- DescriptionThis book addresses two of the most important trends in political ecomy during the last two decades - globalization and decentralization - in the context of the world's most rapidly growing ecomic power, China. The intent is to provide a better understanding of how local political and ecomic institutions shape the ability of Chinese state-owned firms to utilize foreign direct investment (FDI) to remake themselves in the transition from inefficient and techlogically backward firms into powerful national champions. In a global ecomy, the author argues, local governments are increasingly the agents of industrial transformation at the level of the firm. Local institutions are durable over time, and they have important ecomic consequences. Through an analysis of five Chinese regions, the treatment seeks to specify the opportunities and constraints that alternative institutional structures create, how they change over time, and ultimately, how they prepare Chinese firms for the challenge of global competition.
