China's economic success, in contrast to that of the Soviet Union, is due to profoundly different economic and political strategies. China has emphasized areas where limited government investments would produce rapid growth and job generation. Farms were given back to the farmers, foreign investment was encouraged, and priority was given to light and medium industry where limited investment resulted in a surge in output. Politically, reform was divided into manageable phases to develop popular support.
