Paul Hubbard, PhD scholar, Crawford School of Public Policy, ANU.


Other, please see description for details


Friday, 17 March, 2017 - 09:30 to 11:00

In this seminar, Paul Hubbard will explore a contradiction in Chinese state-owned enterprise (SOE) reform between market efficiency and making SOEs ‘bigger, better and stronger’. Based on a large-scale survey of manufacturing enterprises from 2011–2013, Paul will show that small SOEs in highly competitive sectors are able to survive without capital subsidies.
