Crisp hardcover.; "This book investigates the characteristics, achievements and difficulties in reforming the producer and procurement pricing system in China. First, it tries to show how the price system in general moved from a high degree of control in a rigid command economy to partial control in a more decentralized economy. Second, it demonstrates that policies and methods adopted for reforming the pricing system have been to a large extent the result of conflicts and compromises among different theoretical and political groups. Third, it examines the results of the application of different reform methods to regulate sectoral output and subsectoral output composition. Fourth, it examines how a new pricing system dual pricing emerged for the most "important" sectors after 1985. Finally, the book looks at how the changes of price policies and pricing system affected enterprise behaviour." ; Studies on the Chinese Economy; Ex-Library; xvi, 205 pages.
