The political economy of competition under state capitalism: Regulating China’s “strategic emerging industries”

China’s starting point and industrial structure continues to produce hybrid forms of market institutions that are far away from the ideal types found in the neo-classical economic textbooks or the empirical realities of the liberal market economies of the OECD countries. To capture these particular features the concept of state capitalism emphasizes the role of the state in leading economic development in China. The state interventionist approach and the interplay of private companies come to the fore in China´s strategic emerging industries. This research project therefore uses China’s strategic industries as a laboratory for studying questions like how competition is enabled in these state-influenced industries? And what kind of market is envisioned and how is it governed?
