They had to consider how the law would define and readjust rights and interests in the context of a deliberate differentiation between public and private law. While market economies are thought to provide new opportunities for the legal formation of rights, Chinese politicians and jurists have had to ask themselves whether the genie of efficiency, once freed from its bottle, would threaten social stability and retard rights and interests formation in practice. Justice and efficiency in the ‘rule of law economy’ Jurists, who were seeking to disassociate the law from the state, were also faced with mounting contradictions originating in the ‘socialist market economy as a rule of law economy’.

Contemporaneously, there is a coalescence of the sense of subject, the sense of rights, the sense of democracy and the notion of modern enterprise as rooted in a notion of democratic process. While Li noted that the Party had set a target of 2010 for the completion of the building of a comprehensive socialist market legal system, he believed that it would take 30 to 40 years for China to realize the ten principles in practice.
