Comrade Harpal Brar, renowned political economist and former chairman of the CPGB-ML, delivers a seminar on his latest work, Socialism with Chinese Characteristics.

The book explores the path of China after Mao Zedong‘s death, considering the role of the Great Leap Forward in China’s economic development and current success, and the truth about the political events of the Cultural Revolution.

Comrade Harpal then tackles the ultimate question: would China have been better off had it continued to use centralised planning, or were the reforms and marketisation necessary and beneficial?
