China's Transition to A Socialist Market Economy

eBook - 1998
Rate this:
China's transition to a socialist market economy is unique and unprecedented, the result of China's ability to correct the "big bang" approach adopted by Eastern European countries when they attempted to achieve the same goal and because of its own unique internal characteristics. Suliman and his contributors juxtapose native Chinese experiences with observations by academics in the U.S., thus integrating the ideas of people observing China from the outside with the ideas of people living there and experiencing these changes firsthand.
