The Financial Crisis and China’s “Harmonious Societyâ€

  • Arjan de Haan


Registered author(s):

This article focuses on the social policy responses after the crisis, and how these are situated in the austere social policies that have come about since the economic reforms started in 1978, and the recent aims to create a “harmonious society†and the challenges and contradictions these contain.
