Struggle and Innovation: Economic Theory and Practice in 70 Years of New China Published

(Correspondent: Feng Zhixuan) Recently, the Struggle and Innovation: Economic Theory and Practice in 70 Years of New China was published by the Economic Science Press. This book is written by Professor Pang Jinju, the chief expert of the Collaborative Innovation Center for Socialist Economic Construction with Chinese Characteristics, and several researchers of Nankai University.

In 2019, in order to celebrate the 70th anniversary of the founding of new China and the 100th anniversary of the founding of Nankai University, the political economy team led by Professor Pang Jinju set writing a Monograph on economic theory and practice of new China as one of the major scientific research tasks of the year. It took more than a year to complete this achievement. In addition to the preface and conclusion, the book is divided into fifteen chapters, which roughly reflects the historical development of the practice and exploration since the founding of new China.

According to the introduction, the book has several innovative features. In terms of content, on the basis of reflecting the 70 years of exploration and glorious achievements of the founding of new China, there is a number of major issues in this book to strengthen the interpretation of practice with economic theory. In terms of architecture, a thematic discussion is adopted. From the basic point of view, it is essentially the view that the Communist Party of China leads the people to carry out practical exploration of socialist construction in the two historical periods before and after the reform in the 70 years of new China. In methodology, the book adheres to dialectical materialism and historical materialism.

In recent years, the academic team of socialist political economy with Chinese characteristics in Nankai University, led by Professor Pang Jinju, insists on researching and making innovative explanations on major practical and theoretical issues raised in the process of China's reform, opening up, modernization and economic globalization. They have finished the General Theory of Political Economy of Socialism with Chinese Characteristics and the Introduction to Political Economy of Socialism with Chinese Characteristics. Both of them are highly valued by leading comrades of the Central Committee and the theoretical circles. Struggle and Innovation: Economic Theory and Practice in 70 Years of New China is another masterpiece after those two works.

Since the outbreak of the coronavirus pneumonia epidemic, the academic team of socialist political economy with Chinese characteristics at Nankai University has been doing their best to carry out scientific research while preventing epidemic. They have completed relevant special research tasks with high quality, and contributed Nankai wisdom and Nankai voice to the scientific decision-making of the party and the country.

And they are focusing on the construction, development and improvement of the theoretical system and discourse system of socialist political economy with Chinese characteristics.
