China Shakes the World

October 06, 2006 // 9:00am10:30am

We will be hosting former bureau chief of the Financial Times in Beijing—James Kynge—to talk about his new book "China Shakes the World: A Titan's Breakneck Rise and Troubled Future—and the Challenge for America." Drawing from his book (which I can testify is a super read), Mr. Kynge will discuss how China's hunger for foreign jobs, raw materials, energy, and food will reshape world trade, capital flows, and politics. He also will highlight how China's weaknesses—environmental pollution, crisis in social trust, weak financial system, and the faltering government institutions—are poised to have disruptive effects on the world.
