The financial crisis of 2008 brought the world economy into a new stage. While the western capitalist countries suffered seriously, China seems to stand out as one of the few countries that could resist the economic tsunami. There is a general belief that this ability arises from China’s strong state which has reshaped the role of China in the new international division of labour and which also has the ability to resume its economic development internally. Our study of labour policy and workers’ struggles challenges this belief.
