AbstractThis paper reviews the recent cliometric studies about China’s economic history from four aspects, including the quantitative measuring of China’s economy, the arguments about the development mode of traditional China and the related empirical tests, the mechanism and efficiency of the market, discussions about the state capacity, social control and exogenous shocks. These researches have improved our understanding about the classical discussions about Malthusian Trap, Smithian Development, etc., and help us to understand the relationship between state, market, family and culture better.
