Abstract: The 'varieties of capitalism' framework represents an influential methodological innovation in the field of comparative political economy. It seeks to account for enduring spatial variations in national economic performance by recourse to macroinstitutional analysis, drawing ideal-type distinctions between liberal market economies, modeled on USA, and coordinated market economies, modeled on Germany. Moving beyond critiques of varieties literature-for instance, its methodological nationalism; its preoccupation with limited, formal registers of (national) institutional variety; its growing reliance on rational-choice, firm-centric methods; its failure to account for the pronounced interpenetration and mutual dependence of capitalist economies and its tendency to privilege typological elaboration over causal explanation-this article explores the critical (counter?) case of Chinese capitalism. It considers the extent to which the Chinese economy can be meaningfully characterized as capitalist; the character of its state form and recent development path and its position within-or beyond-conventional understandings of capitalist variety. © The Author (2013).
