(p.129) Chapter Three The politics of development
China and Post-Socialist Development

Policy Press

In this chapter, the politics of development is examined in a comparative perspective, between China and the two largest historical developmental states – Japan and Korea. The examination focuses on several groups of features, i.e. state ideology and institutional and systemic arrangements, including those of political, economic and social character, without, however, insisting on a firm division among them. The stress is on the positioning of the state and its consequences rather than on exhaustive categorisation of the features of respective development trajectories. The chapter begins with the examination of economic nationalism. It then proceeds to the systemic arrangements and state capacity and legitimacy. It continues with the examination of the relations among the main actors of development, including labour relations. It also tackles the phenomenon of corruption. Finally, it discusses state interventionism through economic bureaucracy.
