This course is primarily intended to provide an informed perspective about the evolving process of China’s political and economic transition and development during the past three decades. We will analyze Chinese economy from micro- and macro- economic and political perspectives, combining theoretical and empirical studies. Students are expected to (1) understand the path and historical background of China’s economic development; (2) compare and evaluate the strengths and weakness of China’s reform policies and practices; and (3) apply economic theories to the analysis of political and economic phenomena related to China.
