The business of lobbying in China by Scott Kennedy( Book )

20 editions published between 2005 and 2008 in English and held by 645 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In this timely work, Scott Kennedy documents the rising influence of business, both Chinese and foreign, on national public policy in China." "China's shift to a market economy has made businesses more sensitive to their bottom line and has seen the passage of thousands of laws and regulations that directly affect firms' success. Companies have become involved in a tug of war with the government and with each other to gain national policy advantages, often setting the agenda, providing alternative options, and pressing for a favored outcome." "Based on over three hundred in-depth interviews with company executives, business association representatives, and government officials, this study identifies a wide range of national economic policies influenced by lobbying, including taxes, technical standards, and intellectual property rights. These findings have significant implications for how we think about Chinese politics and economics, as well as government-business relations in general."--Jacket
Beyond the Middle Kingdom : comparative perspectives on China's capitalist transformation by Scott Kennedy( Book )

10 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 343 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book breaks new ground by systematically examining China's capitalist transformation through several comparative lenses. The great majority of research on China to date has consisted of single-country studies. This is the result of the methodological demands of studying China and a sense of the country's distinctiveness due to its grand size and long history. The moniker Middle Kingdom, a direct translation of the Chinese-language word for China, is one of the most prominent symbols of the country's supposed uniqueness. Composed of contributions from leading specialists on China's political economy, this volume demonstrates the benefits of systematically comparing China with other countries, including France, Russia, Japan, South Korea, Indonesia, India, Brazil, and South Africa. Doing so puts the People's Republic in a light not available through other approaches, and it provides a chance to consider political theories by including an important case too often left out of studies

Perfecting China, Inc. : the 13th Five-Year Plan by Scott Kennedy( Book )

3 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 26 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This study examines China's 13th Five-Year Plan, the most authoritative strategic blueprint for the country's economic policies under Xi Jinping. The plan seeks to rebalance the economy toward more advanced technologies, greater environmental protection, and a stronger social safety net. However, it does not fundamentally rebalance the relationship between state and market, with the government and Chinese Communist Party still left with significant tools to micromanage most aspects of the economy. Unless greater emphasis is given to shifting this balance, the most likely result will be 'growth with volatility,' in which some Chinese companies move up the value-added chain, but without fundamentally improving the country's overall efficiency and performance"--Publisher's web site
Global governance and China : the dragon's learning curve by Scott Kennedy( Book )

5 editions published between 2017 and 2018 in English and held by 19 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This volume offers systematic analysis of China's growing engagement in global governance institutions over the past three decades. During this period, China has gone from outsider to observer to insider. The volume is based on studies of Chinese involvement in a wide cross section of regimes, including trade, finance, intellectual property rights, foreign aid, and climate change.The contributions show that China's participation in global governance reflects the mutually interactive processes of China's own socialization into the global community and the simultaneous adaptation of global institutions and actors to China's growing activism. Both China and the international system are internally complex. Hence, Chinese engagement varies across economic regimes, yielding different results in terms of Chinese compliance, its influence on regimes, and the extent of cooperation and conflict in addressing challenges in international society. The chapters reveal that China is neither purely a savior nor scofflaw of the global economic system, and while China is a defender of the status quo in some areas, it is a reformer in others, and occasionally a revisionist in still other spheres. A detailed analysis of many areas of global governance, this volume will be essential reading for students and scholars of international relations, Chinese studies and global governance."--Provided by publisher

The report presents data on innovation inputs, such as finance, as well as several types of innovation outputs, such as intellectual property and commercial performance. This study relies primarily on broad quantitative measures because they facilitate measuring trends over time and engaging in cross-national comparison.
