ABSTRACT
This article focuses on difficulties that China had faced in the process of economic reform, specially regarding the strategic choice of the concept of new authoritarianism. As in the case of those socialist countries that have taken the lead in reforming, the degree of difficulty of China's reform has already begun to emerge within the increasingly complicated and multifaceted reality of the situation. China had faced with the challenge of a series of serious problems, such as inflation; irrationality of the industrial structure; that the enterprises expect to enjoy the benefits of their profits but are not expected to shoulder the liabilities of their losses; that there is corruption among a small number of public servants and functionaries; that the market order in the commodity economy is still far from perfect; and so on. These problems are considered as important as the major successes and achievements attained by the reforms. According to the author, the emergence of these new problems serves precisely to expose further how difficult it is to reform a traditional system, and to help economists propose an even higher set of standards for a deeper understanding of the reform and for promoting reform at an even higher and deeper level.
