Event Details

Open to: Public, free

Speaker: Minxin Pei, Director, Keck Center for International and Strategic Studies, Claremont Mckenna College

China's pro-market reform is all but dead. In the last decade, the state has gradually reasserted its control over the economy and changed the overall orientation of China's economic development, from pro-market to pro-state. The post-Deng leadership, particularly the post-Jiang leadership, may take much of the responsibility for this change. But the causes of the demise of economic reform are more fundamental -- they originate in the nature of the political regime. As long as China retains its current Leninist political system, genuine market-oriented reforms are impossible.

Minxin Pei is the Tom and Margot Pritzker ‘72 Professor of Government and the Director of the Keck Center for International and Strategic Studies at Claremont McKenna College. Prior to joining Claremont McKenna, he taught at Princeton University and was a Senior Associate at the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace. Dr. Pei is the author of From Reform to Revolution: the Demise of Communism in China and the Soviet Union and China’s Trapped Transition: The Limits of Developmental Autocracy. He is also a frequent contributor to public affairs journals and leading media sources, including Foreign Affairs, Foreign Policy, New York Times, CNN and National Public Radio.
