The Role of the State in Economic Change

China is one of the countries in the world that still clings on to socialism and communism as its ideologies. Before, they followed the Stalinist view but later on, little by little, they shifted away from this philosophy which gave China the rapid economic success that each developing country desires. According to the study, China, though still heavily intervening with the market, possesses the necessary and desirable environment for good macroeconomic fundamentals. The authoritarian regime of the one party system of China ensures security and stability within the country. China decentralised the administration of its localities which made the local governments more responsive to the urgency arising within that locality. China has undergone a number of correct reforms initiated by Mao Zedong and Deng Xiao Ping as well.

Keywords:   China, Mao Zedong, Deng Xiao Ping, communism, socialism, authoritarian regime, local governments
