China's Growth: The Making of an Economic Superpower

Linda Yueh


China’s economic growth has transformed the country from one of the poorest in the world to its second largest economy. The drivers of growth remain elusive, as the country is affected by both its transition from central planning and the challenges of a developing country. This book examines the main themes of growth, offering micro-level evidence to shed light on the macro drivers of the economy. It also focuses on law and informal institutions of the economy to highlight the importance of entrepreneurship and the development of the private sector.

Keywords: role of the state, institutional reforms, government spending, property rights, level playing field, social protection
