China and the Global Economic Crisis

Dinner & Book Signing with Nicholas Lardy presented by Los Angeles World Affairs Council

March 31, 2009 7:30pm

With the events such as the hosting of the 2008 Olympic Games, many believe that China is signaling its readiness to shed centuries of secrecy in favor of the bright lights of the world’s center stage. By the year 2020, if projections hold, China’s economy will be the largest in the world.

A senior fellow at the Peterson Institute for International Economics, Lardy is also a member of the Council on Foreign Relations with a seat on the editorial boards of the China Quarterly, Journal of Asian Business, China Review and China Economic Review.
