The general shift in China’s economic development strategy from a planned to a socialist market economy has involved the emergence of the consumer. China’s transition to a socialist market economy has altered the lifestyle of people in terms of working, purchasing, consuming, receiving education and so on. As a result, the socio-economic and political classification that labelled the general public as ‘comrades’ in every aspect of life, has gradually given way to the perception of the public as ‘consumers’. Consumption was repeatedly referred to by Deng Xiaoping as the ‘motor of production,’ and policies have accordingly been pursued in a spirit of expanding domestic market demand in order to secure greater economic efficiency.
