Sat, Oct 26, 11am-12:30pm
In these seminar classes we will discuss different versions of Chinese capitalism – centrally managed capitalism where the Chinese government retains control over the largest Chinese enterprises, regional decentralized authoritarianism where local governments compete for revenues and economic growth, and bottom-up capitalism where small and medium-seized enterprises flourish as government influence recedes. None of these models seems to be working especially well at this point. The question is what’s next for China and how the reverberations and spillovers will affect us.
Session 2 will be held on Tuesday, Oct 29, 7-8:30pm.
