Diagnosing the Chinese Economy: Lessons from Japan — Toshiya Tsugami (中文)
March 9, 2017 @ 17:30 - 18:30Free
Join us on March 9 at 5:30pm at the Center for Strategic and International Studies (first floor conference room) for a lecture and discussion (in Chinese, of course) about the current state of the Chinese economy. Mr. Toshiya Tsugami, a well-known Japanese expert on the Chinese economy, will offer his views on the economy and what we can learn from Japan’s own economic history.
The IMF and BIS have issued warnings about China’s rapidly increasing debt levels. How the Chinese leadership addresses this and other economic challenges will have ramifications not only in China but also for the global economy. What can China learn from Japan’s experience? Can a hard landing be avoided?
