Since China's reform started in 1978, China has experienced unprecedented growth. However, China's institutions look ill-suited to achieve such a result, and they indeed suffer from serious deficiencies. This talk addresses the so called 'China puzzle" and China's future growth potential or failing possibilities by analyzing China's institution – a regionally decentralized authoritarian (RDA) system.
In the RDA system, the central government has control over personnel, whereas sub-national governments run the bulk of the economy; and they initiate, negotiate, implement, divert and resist reforms, policies, rules and laws. China's reform trajectories have been shaped by this regime. Spectacular performances in the past and grave problems today are all determined by this governance structure.
