  • Reveals new findings concerning the roles of market institutions, Chinese human capital, private ownership, forms of government, political conditions, and bureaucratic economic institutions
  • The new edition covers a diverse set of important issues: environmental restraints; income distribution; rural poverty; the education system; healthcare; exchange rate policies; monetary policies; and financial regulation.
