China’s Transformation, a Challenge for Political Economy
The long run trajectory and present turmoil of Chinese economy remains a puzzle for most social sciences. It is specially so for economists. Some view China as a typical State led economy, but then how to explain such long term good performance, far better than those of a soviet type regime? Others see this country as a successful example of liberation of market forces but the absence of any major crisis then becomes a mystery.
A possible way out of this dilemma might be to have a closer look at the specific configuration of basic social relations in China and to be ready to detect some specificities that shape economic activity, the growth regime and economic policies. Institutions might matter and they have changed via a series of successive reforms. Growth, stability and crises are the outcome of this social construction.
