Do the Vietnamese support Doi Moi?

POLIS Working Papers from Institute of Public Policy and Public Choice - POLIS

Abstract: Each reform implies social and economic changes. After experiencing war and reunification, today Vietnam is implementing a comprehensive and deep process of renovation (doi moi), but a revolution needs the support of the population to be successful. This paper investigates whether the Vietnamese are supportive of some of the main features of a market economy. In particular the preferences for competition, ownership of firms (either private or public) and income inequality as an incentive to productivity are studied here. The data allow to conclude that the doi moi is not at risk, but the population tend to contrast income inequality.
