MILARE, Luís Felipe Lopes and DIEGUES, Antônio Carlos. Contributions of Mao Zedong era for chinese industrialization. Rev. econ. contemp. [online]. 2012, vol.16, n.2, pp.359-378. ISSN 1415-9848. http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S1415-98482012000200009.
The main purpose of this paper is to present some of Mao Zedong's contributions to the industrialization process of China. Usually China's industrial transformation is analized taking the year 1978 and Deng Xiaoping as a starting point; however, we argue that the economic reforms introduced by Mao Zedong helped underpin the success obtained by Deng Xiaoping's industrial transformation after 1978.
