Getting China Right: Three Scenarios for the Future

Join ASNC and Federal Reserve Bank of San Francisco as we host Arthur Kroeber, one of the world’s leading commentators on the Chinese economy, who will analyze three scenarios for the future and discuss whether China is more likely to evolve into a powerful Singapore-style economy, become an unstable but aggressive Russian-style state, or follow Japan into genteel decline. Andy Rothman, an Investment Strategist at Matthews Asia, will moderate the dialogue.

November 2, 2016 12:30pm to 2:00pm

In the last three decades China has surged from an underdeveloped country to the world's second-biggest economy. Yet as the recent tumult on global markets shows, China risks destabilizing the world as it makes the difficult transition from an investment-driven to a consumer-oriented economy. The headwinds of a rapidly aging population, rampant corruption and enormous national debt are also slowing the country's growth. Whether China succeeds or fails has huge implications not only for its citizens but for the rest of the world.

Mr. Kroeber will sign copies of his new book, China's Economy: What Everyone Needs to Know.
