The evolution of post‐communist systems: Eastern Europe vs. China
The Economics of Transition, 2018, vol. 26, issue 4, 589-614
I propose in this article a new interpretation of the evolution of post‐communist systems by comparing the evolutions in Central and Eastern Europe and in China. Transition is reinterpreted as the result of a collapse of communist state structures in Central and Eastern Europe and, in China, in contrast, as the result of the will to prevent such an outcome. This reconceptualization helps us to better understand the emergence of bad institutions and corruption in Eastern Europe under the market economy as well as the absence of political liberalization in China and the strengthening of the power of the Communist Party in recent years.
