China’s Challenging the “Ricardo Law” Circle: Is world development inevitably antagonistic or conflictive

Wen-jing WU, Peng-fei YAN


World historical development, especially the development of modern and contemporary globalization, tends to be antagonistic, conflictive and non-harmonious. Its theoretical demonstration is “Ricardo Law” circle, namely the rule that social productivity development and historical progress are at the expense of certain social classes and strata. Western countries after the Second World War have hence changed partly in certain ideas, productivity and specific regulations. Will China be fettered by “Ricardo Law” circle in our transformational socialism and has to apply the antagonistic, conflictive and non-harmonious method to achieve the alienating “development”? This paper analyzes the harmony and conflict thoughts and policies of the western economics represented by “Ricardo Law” in order to probe into our socialist social and economic harmony theory.
Key words: Ricardo Law, harmony and conflict thoughts of western economics, Harmonious Society Theory
Résumé: Le développement historique du monde, notamment le développement de la globalisation moderne et contemporaine, tend à s’avérer antagoniste, conflictuel et non harmonieux. La démonstration théorique est le cercle de la « loi de Ricardo », à savoir la règle que le développement de la force productive sociale et le progrès social sont aux dépens de certaines classes et souches sociales. Après le Seconde guerre mondiale, les pays occidentaux ont changé en partie certaines idées et des régulations spécifiques. Est-ce que la Chine sera enchaînée par la loi de Ricardo dans notre socialisme transformationnel et aura à appliquer la méthode antagoniste, conflictuelle et non harmonieuse pour accomplir le développement aliéné ? Le présent article analyse les pensées et politiques d’harmonie et de conflit des pays occidentaux, représentées par la loi de Ricardo, dans le but d’explorer la théorie d’harmonie économique et sociale socialiste de notre pays.
Mots-Clés: loi de Ricardo, pensées d’harmonie et de conflit des pays occidentaux, théorie de la société harmonieuse
