Social Trust: Informal Finance and Economic Transformations

Liu Weiping

This book explores how social trust impacts the Chinese economy. Due to the profound social changes brought by rapid urbanization, China's traditional social trust system gradually weakens. How to rebuild and enhance social credit remains as a key and difficult project. Exploring case studies from the real estate market, private banking, and urban financing, this book explores the value of informal social links to the economic functions of a society and how to rebuild them when they erode. This is of interest to scholars of China's economy and society.
