The next big contention over China’s economic development will likely center on industrial policy, which covers a whole range of meaning and aspects, ranging from technology R&D programs, to administrative price controls to benign neglect of intellectual property rights protection. Industrial policy has become the target of recent clean tech cases between the US and China, a goal of bilateral economic agreements (the China-Taiwan Economic Cooperation Framework Agreement has joint industrial policy elements), and the topic of big-think books variously arguing it is the way forward or the road to ruin. Join economist Dan Rosen as he discusses the future of industrial policy in China.
