Chinese economist Yingyi Qian will be in dialogue with Jin Keyu to discuss Qian’s book How Reform Worked in China: The Transition from Plan to Market.
In his book Yingyi Qian asks whether Chinese successful economic design at the institutional and policy levels and the dual-track implementation of markets can enrich the world’s repository of understanding of contemporary modalities of development. He argues that to understand how reform has worked in China one has to look at initial historical conditions and contemporary constraints.
Yingyi Qian is former Dean and Professor of the School of Economics and Management at Tsinghua University in Beijing, and a member of the Economic Policy Committee of the Chinese People’s Political Consultative Conference (CPPCC).
