Political Succession System in China: Political Stability in Non-Democratic Regimes
Joint HSE-NES Undergraduate Program in Economics
The political instability is a serious problem in non-democratic regimes. It can be caused by both people's revolutions or coups. Political legitimacy allows to solve the first part of the problem and the main way to increase it is an improvement of living standards. But political elites will probably be dissatisfied with an improvement of living standards and raise a coup. Moreover, old dictators are inefficient managers which escalates this problem. I will describe a China political succession system in this work and show its impact on political stability and social and economic efficiency.
