Professor Joseph Foudy is interviewed about China's state-owned enterprise (SOE) reforms

Excerpt from CCTV -- "It's important to note this is a very long-term enterprise for China. They started SOE reforms in the 1990s, shed something like 25 million jobs. So this is not something for 2015, but something we'll see moving forward. The government's target is for 2020. What they can do now is start to put discipline on managers, and that's why they're trying to increase the amount of shares in Chinese SOEs that are publicly traded. They think they can use that as a tool to... influence managers to focus on profitability and to be more efficient with their asset use... Everything they do on that side is going to be very handy for the Chinese economy."
