Unearthing the ideas behind China’s economy

SinoEconomics strives to cast a ray of light into the depths of China’s economic literature. By unearthing insights, ideas, and ideologies, previously concealed behind the great Chinese language barrier, I seek to understand China’s economy.

Cartography of Chinese Economic Thought

  • Who are the country’s leading economists?
  • How has Chinese Economic Thought evolved throughout the last decades?
  • What are China’s different schools of economic thought? Is there a Chinese School of Economics?
  • How does Chinese economic thought relate to the CCP’s political ideology? Which economic lines of thought influence the country’s leadership?
