China and Socialism: Conclusion

Martin Hart-Landsberg, Paul Burkett

Abstract


We have argued that it is wrong to celebrate China as an economic success story or development model. But why is it so important how socialists and other progressives understand China? Is this all just an academic desire to properly interpret the Chinese experience, or a political sectarianism based on an a priori notion of "pure" socialism? The answer is no; the stakes are arguably much higher and more meaningful.
