Abstract: Cyclical rise and fall of Chinese feudal dynasties have been the hot issue in academia since it was introduced. It can be described as voluminous about the research of rise and fall of Chinese feudal dynasties,but it has not yet been finalized. From the perspective of system efficiency,this paper intends to use related theories of new institutional economics to analyze this problem. Based on the theory and model analyses,it argues that a closed supply system environment and information distortion in the process of information dissemination,lead to high-degree information asymmetry between institution suppliers and demanders,thereby resulting in the difficulty in institutional changes in feudal dynasties and thus gradual dynastic system rigidity. At the same time,the external environment is constantly changing. With the gradual change in the external environment,rigid systems separate from the external environment,making the system efficiency of feudal dynasties become lower and lower and resulting in the shift of feudal dynasties from the rise to the fall,and thereby the exhibition of cyclical rise and fall of feudal dynasties in ancient Chinese society.
