CCCI Lecture Series: Professor Roselyn Hsueh (Associate Professor of Political Science, Temple University) - "Globalization and Market Governance: Chinese Capitalism in Comparative Perspective"
March 13, 2017
Scholars debate how and why China’s globalization and development trajectory varies from India and Russia, other developing countries of comparable size and similar timing of global economic integration. This talk questions conventional wisdom that variation in regime type and subnational characteristics explains different models of development in the context of globalization. Rather, mediating the impact of economic liberalization on development is the nature of market governance, which varies by nation and sector within country. Dominant national sectoral patterns of market governance are a function of the values and identities of political economic elites, existing organization of institutions, and structural sectoral attributes.
