ABSTRACT
Many observers in the West find the possibility that Chinese state-owned enterprises may actually not be instruments of the state hard to swallow. Even more difficult to fathom is the notion that Chinese SOEs are more interested in - of all things - making a profit than they are in following orders from Beijing. These authors serve up arguments that contradict the stereotypical view of Chinese SOEs.
