"Chinese Reforms in Historical and Comparative Perspective"
This talk will look at the last 30 years of reform in China in both a global, comparative perspective and a Chinese historical one, paying particular attention to the long-term role of the cultural nexus of power in creating an entrepreneurial local culture as well as long-term patterns of state-society relations. The revolutionary model of development often produced unexpected connections with the cultural nexus to enable and nourish local enterprise.
