In late 2007, the Chinese Communist Party's 17th Congress outlined a programme of eight key economic policies to address future economic development in China. These policies emphasized 'building a harmonious society' using a 'scientific approach'. The paper assesses whether these policies are likely to help China achieve its target of quadrupling per capita GDP by 2020, while stemming the rise of inequality, finding sustainable alternatives to contemporary energy use, and solving various problems in governance, including the quality of party leadership and pervasive corruption.
