The book closes by critically conceptualizing the Chinese state as a “developmental” state in the global system of digital capitalism. The conclusion also summarizes the centrality of communications in China’s opening-up and in its market reforms, explains the limited effect of China further embracing communications in correcting unbalanced economic dynamics, and assesses what may be learned from China’s successes and mistakes.

Keywords:   China’s political economy, the China model, cyber nationalism, networked nationalism, developmental state, national plans, pillar industries, national champions, global convergence, state capitalism
