Event Description

China’s economy has been growing for decades now. As a new player on the world stage, the China that most Americans picture is only a rough sketch based on American news coverage, policy, and ways of understanding. The New China Playbook book presents the voice of a new generation of Chinese, who represent a radical break from the past, and explains how China became the most successful economic story of our time, as it shifted from a primarily state-owned enterprise to a thriving and entrepreneurial global economy. Author and economist Keyu Jin offers an illuminating account of an emergent world power, its past, and its potential future.

Keyu Jin is an associate professor of economics at the London School of Economics. Originally from Bejing, she holds a B.A. and Ph.D. in economics from Harvard University. Her research explores questions in international economics, such as why capital flows from poor to rich countries, how the global implications of U.S. monetary and fiscal policies have changed, and how the rise of China impacts the global economy from several perspectives, including trade, capital flows, global interest rates and saving, demographics, productivity, and technology.

The New China Playbook will be available for purchase at this event.
