CHINA: BEYOND SOCIALISM AND CAPITALISM
A book signing and free public reception will immediately follow the program.
Born in China and educated in the U.S., Keyu Jin is a world-renowned economist at the London School of Economics. Fluent in both Eastern and Western cultures, she is uniquely poised to explain China’s past and to explore what its future might be.
Her most recent book is The New China Playbook: Beyond Socialism and Capitalism. She explains how China became the most successful economic story of our time as it has shifted from primarily state-owned enterprise to an economy that is thriving in entrepreneurship, and participation in the global economy.
She believes that by understanding the Chinese model, the people, the culture, and history in its true perspective, one can reconcile what may appear to be contradictions to the Western eye. She will share her expert view on China and how it may engage the U.S. as a superpower in the future.
