What will China’s economic growth model look like in the future? Everyone agrees that it has to change – before the financial crisis, global growth was characterized by growing and unsustainable imbalances reflected primarily in large trade surpluses in China, Japan, Germany, and the oil exporting countries and rapidly growing deficits, primarily in the United States.
Join a talk with Nicolas R. Lardy, author of the book “Sustaining Economic Growth in China after the Global Financial Crisis” who will elaborate on China’s response to the global crisis, the prospects that it will change the economic growth model that dominated the first decade of this century, and what a successful Chinese rebalancing would mean for the United States and the global economy.
