The article chronicles the economic and social transition in China after the Tiananmen Democracy Movement in 1989. The movement led to the economic liberalization of the country. Three economic breakthroughs emerged: grain rationing was abolished; a stock market was opened; and privatization of township and village enterprises took place. Many provinces and cities have also refrained from establishing state-owned enterprises.
