Summary: This book seeks to document the impact of economic reforms on China's industrial sector and to explain why China's reforms have had such wide-reaching effects. The volume contains 11 coordinated studies that document and analyze changes in the governance and performance of China's industrial enterprises. Chapter 1 presents an overview of the structure of China's industrial enterprises. Chapter 2 extracts key aspects of the survey data to describe, compare, and contrast the systems of governance of key ownership types. Chapter 3 describes the special features of China's economic and institutional structure that create a kind of dynamic endogenous reform process, "an industrial innovation ladder." The ladder has two interactive dimensions. The first is technical innovation, modeled and empirically tested in chapter 4. The second is institutional change, or enterprise reform, viewed in chapter 5 as arising from both conditions within the industrial system and the efforts of central reformers. Chapters 6 and 7 assess the performance of Chinese industry. Chapters 8 through 11 present formal models and technical econometric work. Each of these chapters seeks to examine the behavior of one or more samples of enterprises with respect to a particular enterprise function.
