The emergence and growth of a large, non-state, private industrial sector in China since the late 1970s, in the absence of clearly defined property rights and an embryonic framework to regulate private business interactions, is an indication of how important favourable value systems and informal institutions are in Institutions, governance and growth 31 supporting economic growth.
