A Theory of Power Structure and Political Stability: China vs. Europe Revisited
October 9, 2020 @ 12:00 PM - 1:30 PM
Join the China Research Workshop hosted by the 21st Century China Center, featuring a presentation by Yang Xie, an Assistant Professor of Economics at UC Riverside. The discussion will aim to answer the fascinating question of why Europe, with stronger rule of law and property rights, was mired in conflict during most of its history, while China experienced relatively higher political stability. Professor Yang Xie and co-author Ruixue Jia, Associate Professor at UCSD’s School of Global Policy & Strategy, offer one answer by focusing on power structure: how power was shared among three estates–the Ruler, the Elites (lords or bureaucrats), and the People.
