Abstract: In this chapter, we analyze how the “take-off” of the Chinese economy is due to a gradual shift from a planned to a market economy. This evolution is mainly explained by reforms implemented which we present chronologically. We use a simple evolutionary model, based on biology, to explain how reforms allow an economy to move from a planned to a market economy. We present the case where no reforms are implemented and show that there exist two stable stationary equilibria: (i) a full market economy and (ii) a full planned economy. After the introduction of reforms, we are able to prove that there is only one stable stationary solution that corresponds to a full market economy.
