- In the second half of the 1980s the movement towards socioeconomic reforms in socialist countries increased in force. This was caused mainly by three circumstances. 1. After the death of Mao Tse-tung and after the elimination of the group of his close associates (the so-called Gang of Four) the new Chinese authorities gathered around Teng Tsiao-ping, introduced , already on the turn of the 1970s and 1980s widely understood economic reforms and also liberalized to a certain extent the country's political life. The Chinese experience-in this the evident economic progress achieved in the conditions of reforms-forms an important argument for other socialist countries, that it is purposeful to introduce reforms.
