Excerpts from the Paper

The beginning:
Urban Reform in the Peoples’ Republic of China
What was done – and what could have been done differently?
It is a well-established fact that urban reform in China is quite complex. With that in mind, the ensuing several pages will look at why and how did China carry out its urban reform since the 1980s; the paper will also look at what impact the reform had (and presumably continues to have) upon China. Additionally, the paper explores what this writer would do if charged with the gargantuan task of reforming urban China and its state-owned enterprises: what policies, if given an alternative, would be implemented in lieu of those actually adopted? When all is said and done, urban reform in China has inevitably meant economic reform:...

In the end, China carried out an aggressive program for urban – and national – growth in the 1980s and beyond that was largely successful; judging by China’s powerful contemporary economy, it remains successful to this very day. On balance, I would change little – except that I would remove loopholes that
investment in various areas or regions; poor tax law did create needless problems.
