First, from the three lecture, Dr. Zhao Qiuyun first introduced the development of new structural economics. After that, he analyzed the development strategy of county economy from the grass-roots forces in China using the theory of County Situation Strategy and Tactics. Dr. Zhao Qiuyun pointed out that county economy in China has diversity, and there are differences in the development stage, location characteristics, natural resources, human resources, material resources, technical resources, industrial base, etc. So that the specific endowment conditions should be investigated and carefully diagnosed. Under the development strategy of "four factors" (place, time, structural and endowment) in the area of local conditions, regional high-speed development need the regional comparative advantages, such as talent, finance, innovation, regional coordination, enterprise cultivation and investment. Finally, Dr. Zhao used the case of Jinjiang, Guanling Buyi Autonomous County, Qianyang county and Changzhi County as a case to introduce the application of new structural economics in county economy.

Speaker:Li Hui

Li Hui, Post-doc and Domestic think-tank researcher, Institute of New Structural Economics, Peking University.


First of all, an interesting theory was introduced by Dr. Li Hui: the new structural economics on the dining table. The background of this theory is the agricultural supply side reform. Dr. Li Hui hopes to study the basic rules of the agricultural industry upgrade and the important role of "effective market and the active government" in the agricultural transformation. Then, the four stages of industrial transformation and upgrading are discussed with the Gansu Anding stable potato, Hubei Qianjiang crayfish and Sichuan Anyue lemon. The principle that the market plays a leading role in the allocation of resources is taken as the premise, and the government should be described in detail in the infrastructure, finance, human capital, industrial chain improvement and urban brands. In order to overcome the different problems encountered in every stage of industrial transformation and upgrading, we should help enterprises grow to achieve economic development.

Speaker:Caihui Fu

Caihui Fu, Domestic think-tank researcher, Institute of New Structural Economics, Peking University.


In his speech, researcher Caihui Fu introduced the work that INSE think-tank is doing: introducing the structure comprehensively and systematically into modern economics. The comparison between new structural economics and neoclassical economics shows that the new structure economy is a huge discipline system. Researcher Caihui Fu pointed out that structural change equation is a general model which can study microeconomic and macroeconomic phenomena. With the analysis of the economic data of China, Argentina, Chile, Mexico and other countries and different counties in China, it is proved that the new structural economics has a unique advantage in the study of economic.
