What the U.S. Can Learn from China

Events | Headline and Cultural Forums

China’s economy is the second largest in the world and many predict it will surpass the United States’ by 2020. President Obama called China’s rise “a Sputnik moment”—will America seize this moment? Rather than viewing China’s power and influence as a threat, Ann Lee, a senior fellow at Demos focusing on issues of global economics and finance, asks: What can America learn from its competition? Why did China suffer so little from the global economic meltdown? What accounts for China’s extraordinary growth? Lee details the policies and
practices—from foreign policy to education and economic policies, to the financial markets—that have made China a global power and offers ideas of how the U.S. might cherry pick China’s best practices.
