Abstract

The Chinese economy is currently faced with the difficult problems of slowing economic growth and huge overcapacity. China is struggling to adapt to a “new normal.” Here, I examine the mechanism of why China is faced with these problems and some potential future paths of the Chinese economy. China does not have a socialist, socialist market, or market-oriented economy. Rather, it has a “state-driven economy” and that has deviated far from the saddle path to the steady state. The model of a state-driven economy constructed in this paper indicates that it is highly likely that China will proceed along a long-running transition path with low or no growth, but it is also very likely that China will excessively build up its military.
