which automatically suspends him for one match.” United right back Antonio Valencia should be fit to return against the Belgian team after missing the last two games and Mourinho said his side would have to be at their best against dangerous opponents.economic determinism? Its essence is fairly straightforwardalthough it means different things to different people From the perspective of the Communist Partyeconomic determinism simply means thatafter the bankruptcy of communism as an ideologyits political legitimacy and ability to hold on to power are determined by its capacity to deliver economic growth and improve the standards of living of the Chinese people For some Chinese liberalsopposed as they are to one-party rule but denied the means to change it right awayeconomic determinism offers a possible alternative If economic growth can transform Chinese society and undermine the socioeconomic foundations of authoritarian rulethen they would rely on both market forces and modernisation to help democratise China For most Chinese technocrats eager to see China become a successful market economyeconomic determinism means thatif the party really wants to stay in powerit will have no choice but to embrace market principles The influence of economic determinism reaches beyond Chinese borders Many leaders in western democracies have also apparently fallen for this intellectually seductive theory when it comes to dealing with China Based on their (flawed) interpretations of democratic transitions in Taiwan and South Koreathey believe thatlike its neighboursChina will become more liberal and democratic as its economy grows Western businessmen are victims of economic determinism as well They think that if Chinas economic self-interest determines that it must be more open to foreign businesses and reciprocate the benefits it gains from free tradeBeijing should have every reason to do so Alasthe experience of all those believers in economic determinism in the last decade shows thatlike communismthis idea is not only bogusbut has now gone intellectually bankrupt For examplethe ruling party now finds that economic growth has not bought itself a permanent claim on power or stability Along with economic growth has come higher inequalitymore corruptionand greater social tension The effects of economic prosperity on its legitimacy are temporary at best Those Chinese liberals who assumed that the party would have to allow more democracy in a Chinese society with more middle-class members have been sorely disappointed While it is true that per capita income has increased several fold since the Tiananmen pro-democracy movementthe official policy of the Communist Party has becomeif anythingmore reactionary Instead of permitting more civil liberties and political rightsthe party has deployed the growing wealth of the state in suppressing dissentcensoring the Internetand burnishing its credentials as a successful autocratic model So there is no direct correlation between economic growth and an autocracys propensity to make the transition to democracy (Incidentallywith a per capita income of $5000China is already in a group of nations where 70 per cent are democracies) Chinese technocrats committed to market reforms have experienced a rude awakening in the last decade as well They have witnessed a massive reversal of reform and a return of state capitalism Compared with the 1980sChina today is less market-oriented and more statist The imperatives of economic efficiency did not have much sway over Chinese rulerswho have ignored friendly advice from the likes of the World Bank and the International Monetary Fund and maintained unsustainable economic policies Needless to saywesterners have become thoroughly disenchanted with China over the last decadein no small part because the political benefits of economic engagement with Chinapredicted by economic determinismhave failed to materialise A more wealthy China has failed to democratise Its human rights record has in fact deteriorated Instead of becoming a partner of the Westwhich has enabled China to grow much faster through free tradeChina increasingly behaves like a strategic competitor Its defence spending has maintained double-digit growth Its armed forces are busy acquiring weapons designed to deny the American navy unfettered access to the Western Pacific Economicallywestern frustrations with Chinese mercantilism have reached a boiling point After fruitlessly beseeching Beijing to change its trade policiesthe Europeans and the Americans are now finally playing hardball by targeting Chinese products with anti-dumping charges and lawsuits in the World Trade Organisation The intellectual bankruptcy of economic determinism in changing Chinas political systemeconomic policyand external behaviour should not come as a surprise to us As a theoryeconomic determinismwhich does have empirical basis (otherwise it would not be so influential)fundamentally misunderstands the nature of modern authoritarian regimes Unlike European autocracies which had constitutional rule but no democracya post-communist authoritarian regime such as the Chinese Communist Party faces no internal constraints on its power This reality allows the ruling elites to use the power of the state primarily for self-enrichmentan objective that overrides both economic rationality and public well-being In additionbecause such a regime is maintained mainly through political patronage and violenceits economic policies must serve the narrow interests of the regimes core constituencies (the bureaucracythe militaryand state-owned enterprises) even though such policies undermine efficiency and long-term prosperity Most importantlyfor ruling elites in a wealthy societygiving up power also means exposing their ill-gotten wealth to possible confiscation by a democratically elected government Thus they have all the reasons to resist democratisation at all cost For China and the worldthe bankruptcy of economic determinism could not have come at a better time Bad ideas must go before people make the right choice When Chinas new leadership is finally installed this falltheir first order of business should be to search for a better idea The writer is a professor of government at Claremont McKenna College in the USexpress@expressindiacom For all the latest Opinion News download Indian Express App
