Abstract:

Although China is a Global Manufacturing Titan, the "made in China" mode) has begun to wane. Beginning in the 2000s, China shifted from attracting foreign investment to promoting the competitiveness of domestic firms. The subsequent tensions between winners and losers led local bureaucrats to compete in offering businesses funding and tax breaks. While some bureaucrats successfully motivated businesses to upgrade, others left businesses in a desperate race to the bottom. With in-depth interviews, original surveys, and quantitative data. Ling Chen argues that this regional variation is rooted in how foreign firms strengthened or weakened vested interest coalitions. Chen advances a new theory of economic policies in authoritarian regimes, shedding light on the nature of Chinese capitalism, as well as emerging economies that comprise the new "globalized" generation.
