Karl Polanyi portrayed the first great modern transformation, from the eighteenth to the mid-20th century, in Europe and North America as one where capitalism emerged as a fictitious and dominant ideology and the three elements – labor, land and capital- became commodities in a market society. He also pointed to two ideological counter-movements – social relations and the state/regulations and yet they both have failed to challenge the dominant ideology. A new transformation may be emerging. In China, this new form of capitalism, controlled and managed by the party and a supreme leader, and lubricated, for better and for worse, by social relations (i.e., guanxi) subverts the previous great transformation. It is considered by some as a new form of capitalism in which it is embedded in both the state and social relations. Facing a multitude of challenges, both internally and externally, whether this new form of capitalism can survive the test of time remains to be seen.
