Milton Friedman in China

A revealing account of Milton Friedman’s influence on China’s reform and opening from the early 1980s written by the historian Julian Gewirtz, author of the book “Unlikely Partners: Chinese Reformers, Western Economists, and the Making of Global China” that depicts in much greater detail the influence of not just Friedman and other Western liberal economists, but also Eastern European (more open-minded and flexible than the Chinese back then) socialist economists.

You can guess which of them ended up having the final say in China’s reform and opening trajectory.
