He has twice won China’s top economics honor, the Sun Yefang Prize. He is the author of a number of books, including Institutions, Technology, and Agricultural Development in China (1993), The China Miracle: Development Strategy and Economic Reform (revised ed., 1999), Sufficient Information and State Enterprise Reform in China (1999).
