Over the last decades, the People's Republic of China has become the global investment powerhouse. What kind of political economy has actually emerged in China? How did it develop? In this course, by drawing on traditional China studies and Comparative as well as International Political Economy, an overview of China's political economy is offered. In particular, five dimensions will be discussed: a competition-driven form of multi-level-governance and dynamic state dirigisme; a special form of private-public business sector organization; a fragmented type of corporatism in labor relations; the regulation of financial and monetary relations; and China's integration into the world economy and into East Asia. Unlike Western commentators who are in the grip of "Sinomania", significant contradictory trends "paradoxes of prosperity" will also be taken into consideration.
