Enterprising China

This chapter describes the relationship between law and growth in China. One of the paradoxes in China's economic growth experience since 1978 is the lack of a well-established legal system that supports the increasingly decentralized and marketizing economy. Much of China's reforms have been undertaken without an established rule of law and in the absence of a change in ownership from state to private. It focuses on how China instilled economic incentives in the absence of private property rights and how an imperfect legal system could protect against expropriation.

Keywords:   China, economic growth, legal system, marketizing economy, economic incentives, private property rights
