Professor MU Huaizhong’s chief academic contribution is the establishment of the system theory on social security level. As one of the frontline problems in social security field, social security level theory and application has higher academic value and rarely put into research both in domestic and abroad. Meanwhile, the core research applied the method of quantitative analysis to implement system modeling and analysis by making use of forefront tools. Social security level theory and application is not only the frontline problem, but also the core issue in social security field, with having very strong interactive relations to social security mode, contribution rate, substitution rate and government expenditure etc. Through cross, dynamic and systematic study, professor Mu’s research has taken the shape of system cored by social security level theory and application as well as brought along studies to other relevant issues. The research to social security level is realistic. Based on in-depth research to social security level theory, he made intensive study and discussion to a certain specific problems such as the contribution and payment level of social security, as well as the relation between social security level and fiscal expenditure, creating the research results with both theoretical value and practical significance, making larger academic contribution.

As earlier theoretical ideas by Professor Mu Huaizhong holds that “Medium Rational Control” and “Benefit Axle Control”, which indicate to realize the control over social integration and order as well as to promote the stable development of society in transformation through methods of promoting human’s rational decision making and guiding key benefits selection etc in the economic system reform. He first introduced and argued the theory of “Social Security Moderate Level” in Economic Research, which served as the theoretical support to the establishment of social security system suitable for economic development level, determination of social security moderate level based on GDP and financial investment and the moderate level to transfer payment from the exchequer. In the theory, the model of social security moderate level, the specific measurement to moderate level as well as the prediction of moderate level in the near and specific future date etc brought great impacts on national academic circle. People’s Daily published the article by Professor Mu Huaizhong, where he put forward the theory of “fair living” and “fair laboring” among three distributions. It expresses the viewpoint that fair living is the basic rights for existence, human being shall enjoy basic living condition as social existence, fair laboring reflects reciprocity principle with more pay for more work and get earning based on social contribution. He raised the theoretical perspective of farmers’ endowment life cycle compensation which demonstrates the level and the feasibility of compensating the difference in short of dual agricultural working benefit to basic pension for farmers, providing theoretical basis for establishing endowment insurance system schema of “general benefit” type. He also proposed the theoretical perspective of overall nationwide income redistribution model and automatic convergence of endowment insurance, which offers the design of “two types” and “six modes” overall endowment insurance in China, discovered the automatic convergence law of different endowment insurance overall mode as following income gap, receiving much concerns in academic circle.
