Rural Development in China (3-Volume Set)

The Rise of Innovative Institutions and Markets

By Lu Yilong

Fresh perspectives on China’s rural development and the rise of innovative institutions

Rural Development in China: The Rise of Innovative Institutions and Markets explores China’s rural development path from two angles: institutional innovations and the market. Looking at China’s pace of socio-economic development as a key factor in modernization, author Lu Yilong discusses institutional drawbacks and demands to determine the specific issues of China’s rural market. Using China‘s unique “Three rurals” concept (agriculture, rural areas and farmers) as its foundation, Rural Development in China: The Rise of Innovative Institutions and Markets offers suggestions on how to stimulate rural socio-economic growth and lead China down a path to future economic success.
