China's economic growth has transformed the country from one of the poorest in the world to its second largest economy. Understanding the drivers of growth remains elusive as the country is affected by both its transition from central planning and the challenges of a developing country. This book examines the main themes of growth, offering micro level evidence to shed light on the macro drivers of the economy. It also focuses on law and informal institutions of the economy to highlight the importance of entrepreneurship and the development of the private sector.

From the Publisher
"... with reams of data, numerous charts, and mathematical models and equations, this is without question an enormously well-researched book... an invaluable book for anyone interested in understanding the various factors economic, political and technological behind China's experience at promoting economic growth for over three decades and the necessary measures for increasing privatization, marketization and rule of law that will ensure its continuing economic prowess." — Lawrence R. Sullivan, Adelphi University
