About this Event:

China is the world’s most densely populated country and has its second largest economy. Will it overtake the USA or will there be a slowdown of growth? Our three authors, Dr Linda Yueh, Professor Rana Mitter and Jonathan Fenby, discuss this country of contradictions with its vast peasant society and new workforce benefiting from the ‘economic miracle’. What are the internal consequences of growth on human rights, the peasant economy, and central planning and control? What are the roadbumps in the way of China’s growth, for example pensions, lack of a welfare state and healthcare. And what are the political and economic consequences for the rest of the world?

Yueh is fellow in economics at St Edmund Hall, University of Oxford, and directs the China Growth Centre. She is author of several books including her latest, China’s Growth: The Making of an Economic Superpower, which is out in April.  Mitter is professor of the history and politics of modern China at the University of Oxford and author of Modern China: A Very Short Introduction. He is also a BBC Radio 3 presenter. Fenby is a former editor of the Observer and of the South China Morning Post and author of Tiger Head, Snake Tails: China Today. Discussions are chaired by Graham Hutchings, director of analysis at Oxford Analytica, a sinologist and former China correspondent of the Daily Telegraph, and author of Modern China: A Companion to a Rising Power.
