Chinese Economic Statecraft

William J. Norris

Cornell University Press

This chapter examines the National Social Security Fund (NSSF) as a potential instrument of Chinese economic statecraft. More specifically, it considers the factors that make the NSSF unlikely to be a source of strategic concern by focusing on its institutional and structural characteristics as well as its investment activities. The chapter begins with a historical overview of the NSSF, followed by a discussion of the NSSF's financing sources and uses. It then reviews the NSSF's mandate and activities before evaluating how the theory applies to the case of the NSSF. It suggests that the NSSF has little potential as an effective tool of China's economic statecraft owing to its institutional structure.
