About this product
- DescriptionChina's stunning growth rates have corresponded with the rise of 'state capitalism'. Since the mid-2000s, China's political ecomy has stabilized around a model where most sectors are marketized and increasingly integrated with the global ecomy; yet strategic industries remain firmly in the grasp of an elite empire of state-owned enterprises. What are the implications of state capitalism for industrial competitiveness, corporate governance, government-business relations, and domestic welfare? How does China's model of state capitalism compare with other examples of state-directed development in late industrializing countries? As China enters a phase of more modest growth, it is especially timely to understand how its institutions have adapted to new challenges and party-state priorities. In this volume, leading scholars of China's ecomy, politics, history, and society explore these compelling issues.
