Reform and Opening-up
China's economy has developed rapidly in the past 40 years since Reform and Opening-up.The explorations of its reasons have mainly been focused on the aspects of institutions, policy and development strategy. The discussion of its cultural motivation is relatively rare, and mainly points out the influence of Confucian values. However, Confucian values may not be the main driving force for the rise of China's economy in recent years. On the contrary, the pursuit of material life by the general public who have been "mildly suppressed"by Confucian dominant values for a long time is the fundamental driving force for China's rapid economic development in the past 40 years. This motivation is also deeply rooted in human nature and Chinese historical and cultural traditions. From the Western Zhou Dynasty, China began its first shift in the pursuit of dominant values, that is, from religion to humanism, and also formed some secular virtues conducive to economic development. The dominant values of modern Chinese society began a second turn, that is, from humanities to prosperity and strength. However, this pursuit of value went through a tortuous process until40 years ago, when the reform and opening up provided a good institutional platform for this pursuit and has achieved economic achievement that attracts worldwide attention. The future change in this fundamental value driving force and its related virtue deserves further study.
