At the beginning of the conference, Professor Jin proposed: Paradigm change is an important symbol of the development of various disciplines, and it is also the basis for the theoretical innovation of Chinese economics. Subsequently, Professor Jin raised three major research questions based on the development of economics. First, he pointed out that the study of economics must discuss the general trend of economic paradigm change, and elaborated on the view that classical is historical logic and neo-classical is deductive logic. On the basis of combining the economic development of various countries, he further revealed the importance of economics to human development. Second, he emphasized that the fundamental direction of theoretical innovation is to study different rules and spatial forms and characteristics, and pointed out that Chinese economists should constantly explore the socialist economic forms and characteristics with Chinese characteristics according to China's national conditions. Third, regarding how the rules of different economies coexist and connect, Professor Jin Bei believes that rule negotiation is the only way for countries to coexist. Due to the different rules, the relationship between international industries has become more complicated, so security has become another major issue of economic concern. Finally, Professor Jin Bei summarized and elaborated on the innovation of economic theory. He showed that theoretical innovation not only laid the foundation for the development of economics, but also has great significance for the solution of China's economic problems and the judgment of trends. However, the realization of this process, it must also rely on breakthroughs in major economic theory paradigms.

After the report, Professor Jin Bei enthusiastically answered the questions of the teachers present, and conducted in-depth exchanges and discussions with everyone.
