Seeking the secret of development: From a political elastic perspective
Lü Wen-dong,etc. (Journal of Chinese Soft Science, Beijing 100036, China)
Professor Herbert H. Werlin of Maryland University, U.S.A., invented the theory of political elasticity to interpret social development problems from political and public administrational perspective in 1998. He concludes that elastic regime promotes social development, or it obstructs the social development. As the promotion of development theory, political elasticity theory is original in design, and has its weakness in conclusion, though.
