ABSTRACT
In this paper we use an extensive analysis of China's economy to explore an under-considered phenomenon in public-sector entrepreneurship: social inductance (reactivity/ resistance to development). Herein we demonstrate, in this still-planned economy, how the decisions of policy-makers and institutional entrepreneurs can impact long-term growth in low, medium, and high-inductance scenarios.
