目標與架構

現今中國正同步進行一場涵蓋經濟、制度和社會的巨大變革。本課程將提供一個架構來瞭解中國從計畫經濟到市場經濟的轉變,並以更宏觀的角度來檢視定義的經濟發展過程。課程裡有些議題的層面涉及較廣,是因為考量到中國獨特的改革經驗,很可能會挑戰我們對市場系統與制度變革的分析認知。例如:中國的例子或許可以告訴我們有關產權與經濟成長的關係;私有化對經濟發展有多重要?中國政府在經濟發展中的角色是什麼?我們該如何理解國家在市場經濟中的角色?中國觀察家常常指出「法規」與有效治理的迫切性,但是它們的正確涵義到底為何?這些又與經濟發展有何關連?跨國整合如何影響中國的國內變化?中國又該如何培植具有全球競爭力的企業?這些問題將透過廣泛的研讀、每週授課及課堂討論中提出探討。



要求

每節課所有學生都必須出席,並在課堂討論前完成課前的指定閱讀工作。

大學生每週必須撰寫與研讀內容有關的報告兩份(五頁),此外,課程最後一週需完成帶回家的考試。

研究生每週需撰寫一份分析報告(八到十頁),內容是有關從閱讀資料所引發的問題,並且在期末完成一份研究報告(大約25頁),主題是有關中國改革的政治經濟學,題目需經指導教授同意。




Objectives And Organization

China today is engaged in a remarkable process of transformation - a simultaneous economic, institutional, and societal revolution. This course provides a framework for understanding that process, both in terms of the transition from plan to market and the process of economic development more broadly defined. The course's wider agenda is to consider the extent to which China's particular reform experience can challenge our analytical understanding of the foundations of market systems and the process of institutional change. What can the Chinese case tell us about the relationship between property rights and growth? How essential is privatization for economic development? What role has the Chinese state played in fostering development, and how should we understand the role of the state in market systems more generally? Observers of China today frequently point to the need for effective governance and "rule of law," but what exactly do these terms mean, and what do they have to do with economic development? How has international integration impacted upon domestic change in China, and what will be required for China to foster globally competitive firms? These questions will be addressed through a combination of extensive readings, weekly lectures, and weekly in-class discussions.



Requirements

All students will be expected to attend lectures regularly and complete all assigned readings prior to their discussion in class/lecture.

Undergraduates are required to write two (5 page) papers focused on the weekly readings, as well as to complete a take-home examination in the final week of the course.

Graduate students are required to write one analytical paper (8-10 page) on a question from the readings, as well as a research paper (approx. 25 pages) on the political economy of Chinese reform; topic by agreement with instructor.
