Chinas Regulatory State: A New Strategy for Globalization
Lecture: Center for Chinese Studies: Institute of East Asian Studies | January 18 | 4 p.m. | Institute of East Asian Studies (2223 Fulton, 6th Floor)
Roselyn Hsueh, Assistant Professor, Political Science, Temple University
Todays China is governed by a new economic model that marks a radical break from the Mao and Deng eras; it departs fundamentally from both the East Asian developmental state and its own Communist past. It has not, however, adopted a liberal economic model. China has retained elements of statist control even though it has liberalized foreign direct investment more than any other developing country in recent years. In Chinas Regulatory State, Roselyn Hsueh demonstrates that even as the Chinese government introduces competition and devolves economic decisionmaking, the state has selectively imposed new regulations at the sectoral level, asserting and even tightening control over industry and market development, to achieve state goals. This mode of economic integration is contrasted with Japan, South Korea, and Taiwans manifestly different approaches to globalization.
