For a long time, the “coal maximization” economic development model has imposed a “resource curse” on Shanxi Province. Due to the influence of many factors, such as economic situation, politics, history and nature evolvement, the overall economic development in Shanxi Province is very homogeneous and unbalanced. Uneven development and heavy reliance on coal has led to a single industrial structure. This paper analyzes and explains the concrete manifestations of the “resource curse” that hinder the comprehensive development of Shanxi economy from four aspects, which including the Dutch disease effect, weak system, price fluctuations, and crowding out effect. The key to achieving economic transformation in Shanxi Province is to improve the transformation and development environment for resource-based economy. We must adapt to the requirements of the international situation of comprehensive national strength competition and focus on the “supply-side reform” to continue to create a suitable environment for overcapacity and optimization of industrial structure.
