Diversity and Occasional Anarchy: On Deep Economic and Social Contradictions in Hong Kong

Yue Chim Richard Wong


The world economic landscape has experienced seismic changes in the fifteen years after restoration of Chinese sovereignty over Hong Kong in 1997. Fortunately, the Hong Kong economy has remained steadfast and is still making progress, but public confidence in the governance of the SAR government has declined, and economic and social dissatisfaction have flared. Where should Hong Kong go from here in the face of all kinds of contradictions? This collection of essays provides an analysis of the origins of these contradictions and insights on these issues.

Keywords: Hong Kong economy, SAR government, Public confidence, Dissatisfaction, Contradictions, Hong Kong, China, Economy, Policies
