Professor ZHANG Shuguang summarised the meeting. He thought, firstly, the meeting reflected the achievements and shortcomings of China’s institutional economic studies over the last 3 decades. On the one hand, there are many schools of economics the are well represented in the 110 papers. On the other hand, the biggest change of China’s economic studies is the advance of quantitative instruments and methods that totally shifted the traditional logic-based research methods. However, this may have led to the other extreme, that is sufficient analysis with little idea. Secondly, he pointed out the importance of having ideas and sharp observations in research. He stressed the urgency of cultivating China’s own economic studies.
The next annual meeting is to be held in South China Agricultural University.
