-- What is the best way to measure regional gaps?
-- Have regional gaps widened or narrowed since China introduced its market-oriented reforms?
-- What is the effect of regional gaps on economic growth and social polarization?
-- Are regional gaps in China tolerable or excessive?
-- What are the main causes for the changes in regional gaps?
-- Is now the right time to address these issues?
-- What, if anything, should the Chinese government do to narrow regional disparities?
The central conclusion of this project is that despite -- indeed, precisely in part as a consequence of -- two decades of rapid economic growth, the declining extractive capacity of China's central government has become a major contributor to widening regional disparities, which constitute a significant and growing threat to national development in the future.
