The rise of China has posed serious challenges to the conventional wisdom on governance structure and economic development, creating the Beijing Consensus as an alternative to the Washington Consensus that is based on neo-liberal economics. However, does a distinctive Chinese model for law and economic development really exist and, if it does, how exactly does the Beijing Consensus manifest itself in the context of specific policies? By examining three subject areas closely related to China’s economic success, the speaker aims to answer these basic yet underexplored questions as China rises higher in its global standing. Essentially, the speaker suggests that there is no Chinese model per se.
