China's Regulatory State

This chapter builds on existing scholarship on the Chinese state and its response to international forces to introduce the story presented in the rest of the book. This story of economic statecraft in the age of globalization reveals that China, despite a common set of pressures, has extensively liberalized on the aggregate level only to reregulate by exerting deliberate control in strategic industries and incidental control in less strategic industries. It also outlines this study's research design, and elaborates on a typology of state control based on empirical findings. This concept of state control serves as a guide to our understanding of the dominant patterns of state control in the Chinese political economy.

Keywords:   China, liberalization, industry regulation, economic policy, state control
