The State Strikes Back: The End of Economic Reform in China?

Nicholas Lardy, Author of, The State Strikes Back, and Senior Fellow at the Peterson Institute for International Economics.

China’s extraordinarily rapid economic growth since 1978, driven by market-oriented reforms, has set world records and continued unabated, despite predictions of an inevitable slowdown. Scholar Nicholas R. Lardy argues that China’s future growth prospects could be equally bright but are shadowed by the specter of resurgent state dominance, which has begun to diminish the vital role of the market and private firms in China’s economy.
