dc.description.abstractDrawing insights from Aaron Wildavsky’s studies of the craft of policy making and from the literature on pluralization in Chinese decision making, this article examines the role played by the biggest state-owned enterprise, the State Grid Corporation of China (SGCC), in shaping the country’s electricity policy in the early twenty-first century. Specifically, it discusses how and why SGCC was able to sell its ultra-high-voltage projects as a solution to shortages of electricity. The article argues that (a) central state-owned enterprises (SOEs) are not mere passive receivers of policy directives from the party-state; (b) those with long-term strategic vision, human and financial resources, and institutional capacity can shape government policies to their liking as policy advocates; and yet (c) no one, including central SOEs, monopolizes this process in any given policy area; and thus policy outcomes reflect competition among players and their constant interaction with government policy makers.
