The Hukou system was also implemented as a stepping-stone to turn China into “the world’s low-cost supplier of manufacturing products” (215) by exploiting peasants as an exceedingly low-cost mobile labor force. Hukou was a success kin terms of the economic dividends that it drove, “first through Mao’s forced industrialization and second through the post-Mao “world-factory” strategy” (215-216).
