Event details
Details Are wealth and politics becoming more intricately intertwined in China? The paper examines the extent to which people identified as China's wealth elite have also been members of a) the party congress, b) the National Peoples Congress, or c) the Chinese Peoples Political Consultative Conference. It also looks at the extent to which members of the latter two institutions have 'day jobs' in the business sector.
