Global I.Q. with The Economist - Special Report: China

Events | Headline and Cultural Forums

This program is presented by the World Affairs Council of Dallas/Fort Worth.

Last year China emerged as the second-largest economy in the world after the United States. In recent years, the country has experienced unparalleled growth and increased foreign investment. However, experts are divided on whether or not the economy will overheat or if the country can maintain its current rate of economic growth due to a number of looming internal challenges. Domestic issues facing China include rising inflation, high unemployment rates, income inequality, environmental deterioration and significant human rights abuses, among others.

Will China’s growth continue to outpace other countries or is it headed for a downturn? What impact will China’s policies have on the country and world? Tune in to this month’s Global I.Q. with The Economist free live audiocast as Jim Falk discusses these questions and more with The Economist’s China correspondent, James Miles.

James Miles, author of The Economist’s forthcoming special report on China, has served as the publication’s China correspondent in Beijing since 2001. He previously held other positions focusing on China, including Beijing bureau chief for BBC News and Current Affairs, Hong Kong correspondent for BBC World Service and senior Chinese affairs analyst for BBC News London. He is also the author The Legacy of Tiananmen: China in Disarray, which examines the changing political and economic conditions in China following the Tiananmen Square Massacre.
