China's Economy: Powerhouse, Menace, or the Next Japan?
12:00-1:45pm. In the last three decades China has surged from impoverished backwater to become the world's second-biggest economy and largest trading nation. Yet as the recent tumult on global markets shows, China risks destabilizing the world as it makes the hard shift from an investment-driven to a consumer-oriented economy. The headwinds of a rapidly aging population, a battle against rampant corruption and an enormous national debt are also slowing the country's growth.
Will China mature into a global economic leader, trigger a crisis, or stagnate like Japan? Arthur Kroeber, one of the world's leading commentators on the Chinese economy, will tackle these tough questions. Arthur Kroeber is founder of the Gavekal Dragonomics research service, editor of China Economic Quarterly and author of China's Economy: What Everyone Needs to Know (Oxford, April 2016).
