About this product
- DescriptionKwn internationally as 'Mr. Shareholding' ecomist, Li Yining has had a transformative impact on China's ecomic transition, most tably as an early advocate of ownership reform and in his promotion of shareholding theory. By examining the interrelationship between the government, enterprises and the market, Chinese Ecomy in Disequilibrium presents an in-depth discussion on the issues of resource allocation, industrial structure, institutional invation and ecomic fluctuation in the current Chinese ecomy under the condition of disequilibrium. Credited with developing the theory of ecomic disequilibrium, Professor Li distinguishes two types of disequilibrium on the basis of whether or t the majority of firms in the ecomy are viable profit-makers. In Chinese Ecomy in Disequilibrium, Professor Li points out that t only has China's ecomy been in a state of disequilibrium, but it also has issues with enterprises t being under budget constraint. Given the limitations of market regulation under ecomic disequilibrium, Professor Li advocates the reform of the enterprise system and upholds the government's leading role in the establishment of order in the socialist commodity ecomy. A number of measures are also proposed with the aim of facilitating the transition of China's ecomy from disequilibrium to equilibrium. The central theme is that the reform and transition are means to serve ecomic growth and social development, which would eventually benefit the ordinary citizens in society. Yining Li is a Professor of Ecomics and Emeritus Dean of Peking University's Guanghua School of Management. He is one of China's foremost ecomists, and the author of twenty books and numerous articles on a wide range of ecomic subjects including reform and development in China. He has received a number of prestigious awards and hours for his research. As the leading proponent of a market ecomy in China, Professor Li has had a tremendous influence on China's ecomic reform policy over the last three decades. He has served on the Standing Committee of the National People's Congress of China and is currently Vice-Chairman of the Ecomic Committee of the Chinese People's Political Consultative Conference.
- Author BiographyLi Yining's career has spanned some of the most turbulent periods in twentieth-century Chinese history. He has witnessed at firsthand the many changes that have taken place in China over the past eighty years, and his personal experiences have had a profound influence on the development of his academic ideas. Li Yining was born in Yizheng, Jiangsu Provence in 1930. He enrolled in the Department of Economics at Peking University in 1951, where he was introduced to western economic theory and history by influential scholars such as Luo Zhiru and Chen Daisun. Li joined the Peking University faculty in 1955, but for the next twenty-five years his research was interrupted repeatedly by political initiatives. In 1958, Li spent a year engaged in manual labour with colleagues in west Beijing. In 1964-5, and again during the years of the Cultural Revolution (1966-76), he was frequently dispatched to rural areas where he undertook farm work while being 're-educated' by local farmers. It was not until November 1976 that Li was able to return to Peking University and full-time academic research. His personal experience of the damage done to the national economy by political movements and the poverty he saw in rural areas challenged his belief in traditional socialism and changed his economic views. Since 1979, Li has published numerous books and articles while teaching at Peking University. He is renowned as one of China's foremost economists. During the 1980s, applying modern economic theories distilled from his decades of study, Li set forth a series of reform proposals which have played a central part in China's transition to a socialist market economy. His advocacy of corporate reform and the shareholding system has been crucial to China's economic development over the last three decades. Alongside his commitment to transitional and development economics, Li has also published widely on comparative economic history and economic ethics, interests that have informed his approach to economic policy. In 1993 Li Yining was instrumental in the establishment of Peking University Business School, now the Guanghua School of Management, which is firmly established as one of the most prestigious business colleges in China. Li has long been a passionate campaigner against poverty in China, and in 2005 he instigated the formation of the Peking University Institute of Poverty Research. He is actively involved with numerous charities in China, working to improve the lives of people in underdeveloped areas. His voice continues to be heard on the issue of the eradication of poverty in China. Li is also known as a highly accomplished poet who has used poetry to express his thoughts throughout his career. Li has been married to He Yuchun since 1958, and they have two children.
