This project attempts to analyze the strategies and difficulties of reforming welfare policy in China in the post reform period. The decentralization financial and political authority in China has created an uneven deployment of social welfare across the provinces. This paper uses officially provided macro-economic data to analyze trends in two provinces, Shanghai and Liaoning. This data is used in conjunction with academic writing, journalistic accounts, and policy documentation to attempt to understand the different strategies in the two provinces to solve a similar problem, and explain how there has been such a great divergence in wealth and welfare since the 1980's.
