內容簡介


甚麼是中國自己版本的資本主義?社會學者、政策制定者和投資者,不可不看本書。

每年自1978年以來,中國一直在增長超過百分之十,當前,在中國經濟的規模進入世界第二、人均GDP達到6000美元和城市化率超過50%,使得全球企業不得不正視這事實,重新檢視與中國企業與政治的關係。這廣泛關注的議題,有兩股不同意見正在辯論角力中:一認為中國勢必要調整更為清晰和明確的財產和合約法;另一則認為中國經濟和城市,是新自由主義。

China Constructing Capitalism在這兩股角力上的回應:中國經濟不同於西方認為的新自由主義,而是正在建設中國自己版本的資本主義。全書從經濟生活與城市變遷兩大議題,來證明中國創造地方國家資本主義,對比新自由主義版本的另一種形式。

本書視中國為一「風險文化」,研究中國企業與政治的關係,針對戰略性新興產業具有技術更新更快、市場規模小等特點,導致過程中的顛覆性破壞,造成投資的高沉澱性成本,促進政府、企業、社會機構等形成一體化的保障機制—社會學者、政策制定者和投資者,不可不看本書。

China has been growing at over ten per cent annually since 1978, but this has only come to very widespread notice in the past decade. This received wisdom about China has been largely of two types, both of which – more or less – understand China in the context of neoliberalism. The more business- or business studies-oriented literature seems to argue that if China does not adapt the rule of clear and distinct property and contract law – in short, of Western institutions – its economy will stall. The second set of voices is more clearly from the left, arguing that the Chinese economy, and city, is neo-liberal. For them, China does not diverge widely from the Anglo-American model that, from 2008, has brought the world economy to its knees.

China Constructing Capitalism takes issue with these analyses. The authors argue that it is not Western neo-liberalism that is constructing the Chinese economy, but instead that China is constructing its own version of capitalism. The two central theses of their argument are:

economic life – neo-liberal economic life is individualized and disembedded, while the China model is relational and situated
urban change – China has created a form of ‘local state capitalism’ which stands in contrast to neoliberal versions of the city.
This book analyses China as a 'risk culture', examining among others Chinese firms and political ties, property development, migrant urbanisms and share trading rooms. It scrutinises the ever-present shadow of the risk-averse (yet uncertainty-creating) state. China Constructing Capitalism is a must-read for social scientists, policy makers and investors.
