Editors: Yue Wang (University of New South Wales, Sydney) Prem Ramburuth (University of New South Wales)
Book Description:
The rise of China as an economic superpower is one of the most dramatic developments in the history of capitalism. The transformation of the country from a closed planning economy to a dynamic capitalist society in the past 30 years can be broadly attributed to the changes in three broad inter-related areas: institutional reforms (especially at the level of governments), organizational innovations (especially the emergence of various private and hybrid management organizations), and foreign investment (especially the huge influx of FDI). This book is a collection of cutting edge research that reviews the path the country’s institutions and organizations have taken and the role of foreign investment has played during the past three decades.
