The China Model of State Capitalism: Appeals and limitations

28 March 2011

Professor Suisheng Zhao, Editor of the Journal of contemporary China, argues that while China indeed presents a unique model of rapid economic growth and relative political stability, it is hardly avictory of state capitalism. For all its appeals, the China model has serious flaws that may threaten its sustainability.

Professor Suisheng Zhao is Professor and Executive Director of the Centre for China-US Cooperation at the Josef Korbel School of International Studies, University of Denver. He is the founding editor of the Journal of Contemporary China, the only English language journal edited in North America that provides exclusive information about contemporary Chinese affairs for scholars, businessmen and government policymakers.
