In it, Diana discusses the shift from an open, pragmatic, and experimental approach to development to a more centralised, ideology-driven model.

The paper also explores the impact of Xi’s anti-corruption campaign, top-down directives, and the diminishing role of local experimentation in shaping China’s policies.

It highlights the changing dynamics within the private sector and its relationship with the Party, as well as the challenges faced by China’s youth.

Understanding these shifts is crucial for comprehending the future trajectory of China’s economy and its implications for global dynamics.
