Mark Harrison and Debin Ma (LSE), in a New CAGE-Chatham House briefing paper titled “Soaring Dragon, Stumbling Bear”, discuss China’s rise in the world economy in a comparative perspective. China’s successful model of economic development, based on ‘regionally decentralized authoritarianism’ (RDA), has resulted in China overtaking the territory of the former Soviet Union in GDP per capita. The paper discusses the origins and implications of this important phenomenon.
