Challenges for China's Economic Policy and System Reform

Professor Wu Jinglian will discuss recent debate regarding the future path of China's economic system, a mixture of command and market economy. He will examine two developments that could evolve from the current system: the first would see deeper market reform and the building of rule of law and democracy; the second would lead to the predominance of the government and state sector. He will argue that the direction chosen by China's new leadership will determine the country's future and strongly shape developments in the rest of the world.
