About this book


This book explores the mechanisms and significance of China’s private economy participating in poverty alleviation. By basing its analysis on theories of development economics and public economics, the book stresses practical significance and abandons unreasonable assumptions. It uses a systematic set of statistical analysis tools and descriptive statistics to provide a multidimensional and highly visual format. Beyond the traditional qualitative comparison of countries, it also introduces quantitative comparison. Considering the increasing concern and curiosity about China’s booming economy and rising private sector, the book is highly topical, offering readers theoretical insights into China’s poverty alleviation mechanisms and essential information on the role played by the private economy in social and economic development.​
