Ultimately we are looking at the establishment of a central planning system in China, thanks to support from the USSR, and the growing disenchantment with this system among CCP leaders. In particular, note the tensions between those who wanted to strengthen the Chinese economy as the first priority and those, like Mao, who believed that the creation of socialism should take precedence.

Priorities in Chinese policy shifted rapidly after the death of Mao. The limitations of previous policies were realised, and the CCP leadership began to seek western technology (interpreted in the widest possible way) to make China more competitive internationally. However, the tensions between the economic and the political have remained and have special significance in discussions of the role of the state and of corruption.

This seminar examines the American Occupation and its impact on Japan’s political economy. From there we examine the idea of Japan as an economic superpower, especially in the era of high growth from 1950 to 1973. There are closer looks at three important features of the high growth era: postwar Japanese politics, Japan as a pioneer developmental state and the distinctive features of Japanese industrial organisation. Finally, we re-appraise this material in the light of the deceleration in growth since 1980.

The books marked by an asterisk (*) were hugely influential when they first appeared (with all that that implies) and may be regarded as key texts on Japanese political economy. They tend to be concerned with MITI and the analysis of the role of government in the Japanese economic miracle.

This seminar introduces the reasons advanced to explain the ‘East Asian Economic Miracle’ (only a couple of years before the East Asian Financial Crisis). The World Bank Report (the main primary source) is the key document here, but how far was it a rose-tinted view? The other readings provide context and (some) balance.

The main goal is to try to discover the main reasons behind the financial collapse in East Asia, to judge the role (and causes) of economic slowdown in the region’s major economy, Japan, and estimate the impact on China. There has been much talk of the 21st century being the Century of the Pacific. What do the last two sections of the seminar tell us about ‘expert opinion’? The Roubini web-site mentioned in the lectures has a range of primary source accounts (newspaper articles, expert assessments, government and international agency papers, etc.).
