Product description

Review

'This is a major contribution to the whole literature on economic change as well as on China. Nowhere in all of the literature on economic change and development that I know is there such a detailed study of the fumbling efforts of a society to evolve and particularly one that had as long and as far to go as China did.' – Douglass C. North, 1993 Nobel laureate in Economics

'This book is one of the greatest works in economics and in studies of China, not only for today, but for the future.' – Chenggang Xu, University of Hong Kong
 
'Ronald Coase, now 100 years plus, and Ning Wang have written a compelling and exhaustive commentary about China's fitful transition from Socialism under Mao to today's distinctive capitalist economy. No student of China or socialism can afford to miss this volume.' - Richard Epstein, University of Chicago Law School

'Coase finds a nation whose philosophy and policy have reflected the same simple principle - "seeking truth from facts" - that has inspired his own path-breaking analyses of firms, markets and law. A fascinating and exceptionally thought-provoking account of how China, repeatedly seeking more efficient socialism, found itself turning capitalist.'  - Stephen Littlechild, Emeritus Professor, University of Birmingham, and Fellow, Judge Business School, University of Cambridge

'The authors provide a clear analysis of the path that China took from the centrally planned poverty that Mao Zedong left behind when he died in 1976 to the country's current status as the world's second-largest economy.' - Survival
