September 13, 2017
Drawing on his recent book, Cracking the China Conundrum: Why Conventional Economic Wisdom Is Wrong – Oxford University Press, Carnegie Senior Fellow Yukon Huang will highlight the contradictions common in mainstream understanding of China’s economy. These include understanding China’s debt, rapid growth, corruption, trade, and investment tensions with the United States, and pressures for political liberalization and how these misunderstandings influence American policy. The discussion will also focus on how the next Party Congress in October will deal with these issues and misunderstandings. Carnegie’s Douglas H. Paal will moderate.
Copies of the book will be available for purchase at the event.
