In the past 70 years since the founding of the People's Republic of China, the study of service economy has gone through an extraordinary course, growing from a basically marginalized subject to a popular and thriving field of research as it has never been before. The academic community has made tremendous efforts. The continuous advancement and deepening of the study of service economy benefits not only from the ideological emancipation brought by the theoretical research, but also from the rapid development of the service sector and the implementation of the reform and opening up policy. Given the great variety of services in the service sector, it is very difficult to study the theory of service economy and to construct the discipline system of service economics. Based on the literature review of service economy (tertiary industry economy) in China in the past 70 years, this paper chooses eight research topics, explaining their research contents, evolution and academic contributions one by one. For Chinese economists there lies the new subject, new task and new mission to draw from the beneficial results of modern western theoretical research on the service economy while adhering to the position, viewpoint and method of Marxism, and innovate and develop socialist service economics with Chinese characteristics.
