Criteria of Market Economy

Updated: 2006-10-09 16:11

Ours tends to be a combination of the above two approaches. We believe the full standard, which most domestic specialists regarded as, is an absolute theoretical standard. Absolute values are clear at a glance, but far from the reality. It is feasible to measure the extent of markelization by arranging orders on a relative basis, and relative indicators are easy to conduct and convincing. However, the process of arranging orders actually cannot exist without such processes of measurement as scoring by selecting several indices. In other words, the process of arranging orders is involved in the measurement of absolute values; the result of absolute values may still require comparison on a relative basis. The verdict on absolute values needs to be combined and unified with the arrangement of orders on a relative basis. In a word, an absolute rational standard of marketization never exists, but the mean values in the five key factors of market economy can be considered as a general criterion, which is a practical and relative standard. Some may question: is the five-key-factor criterion based on a scientific classification? Our answer is: this is a symbolic classification derived from practice, and is designed for a special purpose. The aim of our research is how to conduct a fair trade and anti-dumping cases in a proper and impartial way, rather than to achieve the integrity in theory. We strongly believe our measurement will be improved steadily on a scientific basis in the course of reaching a common ground with countries concerned and in the process of pushing forward fair trades.
