Neo-liberalism, China and Covid-19

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter


This chapter tests our findings about the strength of China’s socio-economic model by way of focusing on the global pandemic caused by Covid-19. We argue that China, along with other states that refused to follow the neo-liberal model of financialised capitalism, fared much better in containing the pandemic in their societies. Such examples include Vietnam, Cuba and China itself.
