Book Description

China’s growth miracle over the past 30 years has propelled it to become the world’s second largest economy and potentially the largest in the following years. This book examines China’s experience on economic reform, trying to find the reasons for the sustainable and rapid development and provide insights into the study of economic theories.

From the perspective of political economics, this book elaborates on China’s socialist market economy which was officially confirmed as the goal of the country’s economic reform in 1992. It expounds on China’s economic model, the relationship between socialism and market economy, as well as the establishment and improvement of socialist market economy in China, deepening the studies in the laws governing China’s economic development. Then, it explores the gradual reform, the reform of state-owned enterprises, and the relationship between governments and market, all of which are crucial to the success of China’s economic reform. Finally, based on the analysis above, this book discusses the reasons for the constant and rapid development of China’s economy.

With detailed analysis on the reform experience and theoretical implications, this book will appeal to scholars and students studying China’s economy, and contribute to the development of economic theories.
