About this product
- DescriptionThe tremendous success of China's ecomic reform, in contrast with the vast difficulties encountered by the former Soviet Union and Eastern European countries in their transition, has attracted worldwide attention. Using a historical, comparative and analytic approach grounded in mainstream ecomics, the authors develop a consistent and rational framework of state-owned enterprises and individual agents to analyze the internal logic of the traditional Chinese planning system. They also explain why the Chinese ecomy grew slowly before the market-oriented reform in 1979 but became one of the fastest growing ecomies afterwards, and why the vigor/chaos cycle became part of China's reform process. The book also addresses the questions: Can China continue its trend of reform and development and become the largest ecomy in the world in the early twenty-first century? What are the general implications of China's experience of development and reform for other developing and transition ecomies? In this revised edition, the authors update the data and information in the book and include a new chapter on the impact of China's WTO accession on its reform.
