Analysis of the evolution of China's platform economy policy from the perspective of policy instruments
【Purpose/Significance】By analyzing the current policy status of platform economy in China, this paper finds out its deficiencies and provides corresponding countermeasures or suggestions for the development of platform economy. 【Methodology/Process】 Based on the data of a series of platform economy policies already carried out in China, this study adopts content analysis method and quantitative analysis method, first analyzes the current situation of policies from three aspects: time evolution, policy sector distribution and policy types, and then constructs a theoretical analysis framework from two dimensions: policy tools and platform economy characteristics to conduct a multi-dimensional analysis on China's platform economy policies. 【Results/Conclusions】The research results show that (1)the overall number of China's platform economy policies is insufficient and the policy implementation is not enough; (2)the policy tools are biased towards environment-oriented policy tools, neglecting supply-oriented and demand-oriented documents.(3)Policies are mostly guided by "opinions" and "notices", lacking comprehensive and unified programmatic policy documents; (4) In the early stage, too much emphasis was placed on the development of the platform economic scale, while the governance of the platform was ignored, resulting in the serious platform monopoly.
