The evidence for Jiangsu province points to a key role for Maoist learning by-doing in powering the rural industrialization of the transition era. The learning hypothesis seems to hold up in Jiangsu, in part because the scale of labour migration was less than much of what literature implies. Admittedly, the evidence was disguised by the regional impact of product price distortions in Suxichang, and the artificiality of the state’s categorization of rural and urban areas in much of southern Jiangsu in the early 1980s. But once these veils were lifted, it became apparent that the learning hypothesis was as applicable to Jiangsu as it was to other parts of China.
