Arthur Kroeber, moderated by Lucy Hornby

As the recent tumult on global markets shows, China risks destabilizing the world as it makes the hard shift from an investment-driven to a consumer-oriented economy. The headwinds of an aging population and a battle against corruption are also slowing the country’s growth. Will China mature as a global economic leader, trigger a crisis, or stagnate like Japan? Arthur Kroeber, editor of China Economic Quarterly and author of the forthcoming China’s Economy: What Everyone Needs to Know (Oxford, April 2016) will tackle these tough questions. Book website: Moderated by Financial Times China correspondent Lucy Hornby.
