The general significance of China’s discussion on the economy’s ‘supply side’

29th January 2016 Socialist Action 0

The following article, by John Ross, on  China’s discussion on the economy’s ‘supply side’, was previously published by Socialist Economic Bulletin.

A major discussion is taking place in China on the issue of its economy’s ‘supply side’. Naturally there are aspects of this which relate to specifically Chinese issues. Discussion in China also differs fundamentally from that in the West in that it takes place simultaneously in both ‘Western’ and ‘Marxist’ economic terms. Nevertheless the overall framework of this discussion equally relates to the key issues of economic policy in Western countries.
