  China: After 20 Years of Dengism, What Lies Ahead?
Two decades of Dengism has moved China from leftism to economic development without major turmoil, quadrupling the living standard and laying the foundation for ongoing systemic reforms.
However, tight administrative controls are essential for gradualism to be successful since they prevent an economy that is halfway between a market system and a planning structure from being unraveled through arbitrage.
The most important accomplishment of Dengism was its success in releasing the economy from the stranglehold of leftist policies without incurring massive social upheaval, which would have meant widespread starvation.

Astute and pragmatic, Deng understood that Mao's peculiar statecraft doomed China to further decades of servitude and lassitude as a teetering third-world economy with more than a billion mouths to feed.
For it is today the bright hope of Dengism's flexible economic legacy that fuels modern China, not the dark fearfulness of medieval Maoism.

No one, perhaps, understands the fate that may befall a leader's policies after his death better than Deng Xiaoping, who was twice purged by Mao Tse-tung but bounced back in 1978 to begin dismantling Maoism.
Not long after Deng came to power, he told a gathering of top officials that choosing his successors was "a task of century-long significance." Since then, he has taken every possible precaution to ensure that Dengism will outlast him.
Deng began his effort by abandoning the personality cult and dictatorial...

To what extent was Dengism a departure from Maoism?
If there are marked differences between the two, it is proper to explain these differences in the context of WHY (i.e., the rationales for the Dengist policies).
In answering the last question about change/continuity, it is useful to point out what Dengism had accomplished that Maoism could not, and vice versa, as well as the common dilemmas or failures of BOTH systems of governance.]

It was because the sharp clash between Dengist and Maoist ideologies was long-standing, whereas actual struggles to transfer political power are short-lived.
So, what actually occurred was that so called elitism and the discourses created by intellectuals all became the effective "practice" of the legitimized Dengism.
