The Presidential Primary: A Faulty Process, Douglas A. Fraser, Irving Bluestone Sep 1990

The Presidential Primary: A Faulty Process, Douglas A. Fraser, Irving Bluestone

New England Journal of Public Policy

Between Hierarchy And Market: Industrial Reform In The People's Republic Of China In An Institutional Perspective , Xiao-Jia Ge

Retrospective Theses and Dissertations

By employing an institutional perspective, this study analyzes industrial reform in the People's Republic of China (PRC), particularly the reform of state-enterprise relations since 1978. By viewing institutional reform as a process of changing rules and procedures governing both state-enterprise relations and micro-economic organizational behavior, the study gives a detailed account of the evolutionary process of the PRC's industrial reform and of the continuities and discontinuities that this reform has involved. Using Kornai's theoretical framework, particularly the concepts of paternalism and soft budget constraints, phenomena seen as symptomatic of the syndromes described by Kornai were analyzed through ...
