USC U.S.-China Institute:China

 

Please join the USC U.S.-China Institute for a talk by William Overholt on his new book, China's Crisis of Success. China has reached a threshold where success has eliminated the conditions that enabled miraculous growth. Continued success requires re-invention of its economy and politics. Overholt argues that Xi Jinping is pursuing the riskiest political strategy of any important national leader. Alternative outcomes include continued impressive growth and political stability, Japanese-style stagnation, and a major political-economic crisis.

 

China's Crisis of Success

Date:Thursday, April 19

Time:4:00-5:30pm 

Location:Taper Hall(THH)210

About China's Crisis of Success

In 1993 William Overholt published The Rise of China:How Economic Reform is Creating a New Superpower, a controversial forecast of success based on the its emulation of the earlier Asian miracles; that forecast was initially ridiculed, then later acclaimed as prescient. In 2012 he called for a reassessment of China's prospects based on divergence from the paths of earlier successes. His new book, China's Crisis of Success, argues that China is like an entrepreneur whose business success reaches a threshold where success can only continue if it transforms itself(e.g., with professional accounting, professional HR, and much else). Above all, success has created an exponential rise in the complexity of economic and political issues. China's leadership has responded with a brilliant plan of economic transformation, but has political problems with implementation of key reforms, and has no comparable model of political transformation.

 

By applying comparisons with other emerging countries, China's Crisis of Success reveals China's core strengths and weaknesses, in the process potentially revolutionizing much of our understanding of China. On one hand, other than human rights China has served the needs of its people much better than most Western theories acknowledge. For instance, contrary to widely accepted political analyses, Chinese communism is not uniquely susceptible to corruption and environmental degradation; developing democracies like India are much worse. Moreover, contrary to the most highly regarded economic theorists, China is far more economically inclusive than its democratic counterparts at similar levels of development; for instance, homeownership is 20 percentage points higher than the U.S. Moreover, China's administrative system, denigrated by respected Western analysts as crippled by factionalism and incapable of long-range planning, actually demonstrates extraordinary strengths.

Comparative analysis also reveals China's weaknesses. There is no widely applicable Beijing Model; China's path can only be emulated countries experiencing certain extreme conditions and even then only for a limited time. Xi Jinping's extraordinary ability to eliminate rivals does not necessarily convey comparable ability to implement reform policies. Implementation of those policies at a time of financial stringency requires paying a heavy price in economic growth and political support and so far the leadership has been unwilling to pay much of that price. Lack of this leaves China in a crisis of success:a big success, a proportionately big crisis, and resulting uncertainty as to whether the future will bring continued political and economic success, stagnation, or collapse of the model.

Please join the USC U.S.-China Institute and USC professor Brett Sheehan for a discussion on the evolution of Chinese capitalism chronicling the fortunes of the Song family of North China under five successive authoritarian governments. Headed initially by Song Chuandian, who became rich by exporting hairnets to Europe and America in the early twentieth century, the family built a thriving business against long odds of rural poverty and political chaos.
