This introductory section aims to show that China's investment ratio and real investment growth rate are indeed characterized by a pronounced cyclical pattern, with a periodicity of about five years.

More concretely, based on this framework and relevant techniques we can seek direct empirical proof for the existence of equilibrium relationships without having to tackle such difficult problems as how to set up separate demand and supply functions first. The shortrun adjustment behaviour can then be modelled as an error correction process with the equilibrium relationship as an attractor. The major advantage of modelling the adjustment equations is that it enables us to avoid tackling certain thorny issues around 'bridging' the gap between theory and data which arise when the usual equilibrium assumption is prior-imposed.

The concept of soft budget constraint illustrates the collective experience of a large group of enterprises and, in China, the sum of the SOEs. It reflects in financial form a deeper, socio-economic phenomenon, which in Marxian terms would be indicative of a certain social relationship between the state and the economic micro-units, particularly the SOEs. One of the most impressive consequences of the soft budget constraint syndrome may be the formation of investment hunger. For example, consider an economy where hard budget constraints dominate.
