As the Chinese economy has grown and globalized, China has struggled to regulate the various forms of risk that has arisen, from food safety, to prescription drug safety, to financial innovation. In this presentation, Prof. Dali Yang discusses China’s challenges in building a modern regulatory state and the implications for understanding the prospects for Chinese development.
