How Keynesian Economics Came to China


  • Paul B. Trescott

    (Southern Illinois University at Carbondale)


This paper analyzes the way in which Keynsian economic analysis were introduced into China. Many of the details of the paper were based on interviews with a number of senior Chinese economists: Chen Dai-sun, Wang Chuan-lun, Wu Pao-san, Chen Chenhan, Tsui Shu-hsiang, and Gao Hong- ye. These were conducted in Spring, 1992 in Beijing. Michael Lindsay responded to telephone inquiries, and Alfred Ho, Chen Guo-qing and Yan Zhijie kindly corresponded with the author.
