This article presents the results of a survey which examined the technical decision making in state-owned Chinese business enterprises. The survey presented an analysis of enterprise demographic data which revealed a substantial legacy of central planning and affirmed the existence of more favored state enterprises. The survey also reaffirmed the rationality of Chinese management within the overall context of a centrally planned system and illustrated how different rationalities exist among economic systems
