Where Have All the Elders Gone?

by Alice L. Millervia China Leadership Monitor
Friday, April 30, 2004

The sweeping turnover of top party and state leaders completed in 2003 brought about the retirement of more than a dozen influential men who had dominated China's politics in the 1990s. Together they join a group of leaders, commonly referred to as the "elders," who presumably retain significant political influence in the decision making of their successors. Since retiring, however, the elders have presented a very low public profile, so divining the extent and nature of their influence is a highly speculative enterprise.

Financial Reconstruction: Methodical Policymaking Moves into the Spotlight

by Barry Naughtonvia China Leadership Monitor
Friday, April 30, 2004

The Wen Jiabao administration has found its feet and instituted ambitious initiatives in the financial arena. Since December 2003, major new policies toward the financial sector have been rolled out. Recapitalization, reorganization, and stock market listing of two of the main state-owned banks have begun. A program for new policies toward the stock market has been released. The launching of major programs follows the reorganization of the administrative apparatus and the promulgation of a series of laws and programmatic documents. Thus, the resumption of activist policymaking represents the culmination of a steady and methodical process of preparation. The degree of preparation is impressive, but it also reflects the magnitude of the challenges currently being faced and the difficulty of shepherding new policies through the Chinese political system.
