The transition in rural China from a socialist economy to the present system has been difficult and problematic. But Chinese farmers have refused to become mere victims of systemic changes, and instead have been grappling with the issue of their economic survival and of production financing through creative arrangements. Professor Zhou’s talk will explore those arrangements in detail in two villages: one in East China, and the other in the province of Gansu, in West China.
