The burgeoning might of China’s economy has been one of the most consequential stories of the past few decades, and its impact on the global economy is now firmly established beyond simply market access. China’s overseas investment span the globe, and in many countries China has replaced the U.S. as the top trading partner. The ambitious Belt and Road Initiative aims to tie China and Asia to the Middle East, Europe, and Africa. But how is this economic miracle powered?
Join us for a discussion with Dexter Roberts, author of The Myth of Chinese Capitalism: the Worker, the Factory, and the Future of the World, and Jiayang Fan of The New Yorker, on the reality behind today’s financially-ascendant China, and how restrictive policies are preventing the country from becoming the world’s largest economy, and the problems that China and its people face today — giving a cautionary picture of China for a world now held in its financial thrall.Buy tickets/get more info now
