The Money Programme (1992): The End of the Iron Rice Bowl - Can China Succeed where the USSR Failed?

-What a find! Great show! 

The End of the Iron Rice Bowl from Phil Rees on Vimeo.
In the industrial northeast of China, reformers were trying to wean the workers off total dependency on the state - a system that Mao Zedong called 'The Iron Rice Bowl'. Elsewhere there is free-wheeling capitalism.

The late, great Brian Barron reported from China in 1992 for The Money Programme and asked if the Chinese can succeed where the Soviet Union failed in marrying communism and the market.

The Telegraph (24.2.92) described the documentary as "fascinating".
