How Does China’s Government Work?

How Does China’s Government Work?


Since the end of Mao Zedong’s leadership
in the 1970s, the People’s Republic of China has become one of the biggest economies in
the world. Although they still call themselves “communist,” the inner workings of the Chinese
government are a mystery to many. So how does China’s government work? Well, China has operated under a single political
party since the birth of Communist China, called “the Communist Party of China.” Although
eight other minor parties exist, they are not allowed to challenge CPC policy. This
situation paints China as an authoritarian country, where political dissent is punishable
by lengthy prison terms or exile. China is also one of 5 major nations in the
world to retain a Communist ideology. And while most businesses are owned by the state,
China has been implementing capitalist policies and allowing companies to privatize. In reality,
China is more of a mixed economy than a purely communist country. Additionally, many government
officials are elected for their technical expertise, making China in some ways a technocracy.
This series of political compromises explain why China is economically much more successful
than other communist countries of the past. With just one political party, there is more
cohesive legislation, allowing China’s government to react quickly to market trends. Their communist
ideology also lends itself to long-term economic policy, which has allowed them to prosper
at the expense of regulation and workers rights. China’s government is infamous for corruption,
ranging from racketeering to bribery. In 2015, a former security chief was sentenced to life
in prison for bribery and abuse of power. Also, punishments for threatening the party’s
dominance are so severe that China is ranked among the lowest nations for press freedoms
and human rights. In the end, China’s government has been
successful on paper, but not so much in theory or ethical policy. As an authoritarian government,
China sees mass censorship of unapproved ideologies, and is one of the largest jailers of journalists
in the world. It’s clear that being the second largest economy in the world, while
juggling strict ideologies, comes at a difficult price. China’s government is actually not too different
from the socialist government of North Korea, China’s next-door neighbor. To learn more

  1. For those who are evil will be destroyed by US
    President Trump and the world's should call for a total economic boycott of red evil China for good
    "We must take strong defensive actions to protect America's leadership in technology and innovation against the unprecedented threat posed by China's theft of our intellectual property, the forced transfer of American technology and its cyber attacks on our computer networks,"
    "These tariffs are essential to preventing further unfair transfers of American technology and intellectual property to red China,"
    对于那些邪恶的人将被美国摧毁特朗普总统和全世界应该呼吁全面抵制邪恶的红色中国……“我们必须采取强有力的防御行动,以保护美国在技术和创新方面的领导地位,抵御中国盗窃我们的知识产权,美国技术的强制转移及其对我们计算机网络的网络攻击造成的前所未有的威胁,”“这些关税对于防止美国技术和知识产权进一步不公平地转移到红色中国至关重要,”

  9. Communist China is a two parties system liked USA. One is pro Jewish communists backed by democratic party of USA, the other is Guomintang infiltrators backed by US republican party. The only difference to their American counterparts is they both are the members of Chinese communist party.

  11. Let me explain how the Chinese government works: Very simple. China is run like a company; while every Chinese citizen is a share holder … If you look at the successful companies in this world, none of them is led by someone directly elected by the share holders.

  28. China is authoritarian capitalist with socialist ideology. So much stupidity and propagandizing in the comments. It's not communist or capitalist it's a mixed economy with an oligarchy and dictatorship.

  29. How it works?
    If u are ambitious, join the ccp.
    Working under serious internal competition or battle, the promote depends on performance.
    Most of CCP members are well-educated or skillful.
    That is why China can develop fast without democracy like western.

  30. Completely one sided depiction which is more propaganda than an educational tool. You will never understand China while viewing them through western lenses. This is why the west continuously gets China wrong and most of their predictions regarding China’s economy and government fails to materialize.

  31. They're government doesn't really work lol. It works because there's so many people that persecution of a minority or small ethnic cleansing is virtually undetectable. They're economy is a ladder of paper tigers and the ATM machines in China pretty much print money… They also have a massive massive big brother surveillance system that would make the American FBI director cream in his pants. Communism only works when it's corruption based, the private business owners you mentioned are Chinese government officials, owning small business which isn't state owned by the average citizen is not only an alien policy to them it's also illegal to them punishable by some draconian sort of punishment to say the least, that being said…. Kudos 🐯

  32. How does it work? The answer is "Socialism with chinese characteristic" which basically means Capitalism+A strong government. In China the party leads everything, so the government is extremly efficient.
    I really hate one-party politics. But there's no doubt that the last 30 year has seen China's rapid development. I don't like the party but I have to admit their achievement of making many millionares and improving most people's lives.
    But with time going on there will be more and more problems. The party can't be supervised at all under current system. So there comes corruption and abuse of power. The gap between the rich and ordinary people will only widen day by day. The government officials and the richest are gradually becoming a new previleged class, controlling all the power and resources. That's why we need democrocy.

  43. I am really amazed by the ignorance and also the same time confidence of the guy in the video. I mean it does not harm to google some basic facts about China before making the video.

  45. China has a long history. Many dynasties in ancient China collapsed because of Party struggle. A party must represent the interests of some people. Dynasty needs are the interests of the whole society. In fact, western political parties legalized party and government and consumed social forces. China often said that governing the world is to safeguard the interests of all people, the Communist Party. Actually speaking, the Party Constitution represents the vanguard of the working class, the most advanced productive forces and the interests of the vast majority of the Chinese people. That is to say, in governing the world, China today is actually a combination of Marx and Chinese culture. The advantage of China's system is that it can reform itself. If China can gradually solve the problem of political struggle at the top level, it will be a long time. Ancient Chinese dynasties generally exceed 300 years, the history of the founding of the United States is only 200 years, China's 5000 years, and China's wisdom has a long history.

  48. Imagine thinking that china is an authoritarian government but the US isn’t. Literally studies show people have almost no say corporations have all the power
    Capitalism is not making China richer, its making one small segment of the population wealthier at the expense of another. China’s current status was made possible BECAUSE of collectivist economic policy not in spite of it. China was the poorest country in the world you really mean to tell me they went from that to a first world super power only because of the current reforms ?? In 20-30 years at most? Give me a break. People in capitalist countries love to know almost nothing about places like the ussr except Stalin Stalin Stalin Stalin and even that they know almost no context about whatsoever. Most people are cowards who are intellectually too afraid to study things they don’t have official sanction for
