George Magnus and Jonathan Fenby Chaired by Stephen Law

Tuesday, 31 March 2020

4:00pm

1 hour

Oxford Martin School: Lecture Theatre

£8 - £13.50

China experts George Magnus and Jonathan Fenby discuss where China is heading and the implications for the rest of the world. Where will China be in 10 or 20 years? What will be its impact on values, politics, and economies around the world? How will the new tariffs impact China and the West? Are we witnessing the rise of new empire? Should we be hopeful, or fearful?

Fenby is a journalist and former editor of the South China Morning Post. He has covered policy and politics in China for 20 years and has written eight books on China including Will China Dominate the 21st Century? and The Penguin History of Modern China: The Fall and Rise of a Great Power, 1850 to the Present. Magnus is an associate at the China Centre at Oxford University, a research associate at the School of Oriental and African Studies, and former chief economist of UBS. He has written extensively about China in the Financial Times and other economic and financial publications and is author of The Age of Aging; Uprising: Will Emerging Markets Shape or Shake the World Economy?; and Red Flags: Why Xi’s China Is in Jeopardy. Discussions are chaired by Dr Stephen Law, a philosopher and academic, author of bestselling introductions to philosophy for adults and children, and editor of the Royal Institute of Philosophy Journal Think.
