This talk is ONLINE only.
David Dollar will present results from a collaborative effort among economists at Peking University and the Brookings Institution.
Key questions addressed include: does China have enough talent and the right institutional setting to transition from an input-driven economy to an innovation-driven one? What does an aging population mean for the country in terms of labor supply, consumption, and social welfare expenditures? Can China contain environmental and climate change risks? How should the financial system be transformed in order to support these objectives while managing financial risks? These and other challenges will be the focus of the talk.
David Dollar, Senior Fellow – Foreign Policy, Global Economy and Development, John L. Thornton China Center, The Brookings Institution
