Economic stability is prima facie used to signify low unemployment and stability in prices; in the Chinese context it commonly also signifies economic growth (Sandby-Thomas, 2011, p. 87), despite having been much internal debate at a policy level about the distinction between growth and stability (see Dittmer & Wu, 2006, p. 73). Social stability, in the sense that the world around the individual does not change dramatically from day to day, is a separate issue, and one which is more likely to clash with the Chinese party-state’s revolutionary outlook.
