Arvind Subramanian, Senior Fellow, Peterson Institute for International Economics and Author, Eclipse: Living in the Shadow of China's Economic Dominance
Chair: Roderic Wye, Associate Fellow, Asia Programme, Chatham House  


The speaker will argue that the historical experience of the United Kingdom is informative in understanding the vulnerability of the United States to China’s economic dominance, as is the experience of sterling in predicting the rise of the renminbi as the world’s premier reserve currency.  He will go on to offer suggestions for ensuring that the open global economic system survives China’s dominance.
