Tectonic Shifts of the Global Economy: Long-Term and Short Term Implications of China's Growing Impact
Christopher Thomas- Senior Advisor,McKinsey & Company
This seminar is jointly hosted by the Stanford Program on Regions of Innovation and Entrepreneurship (SPRIE) and Greater China Business Club (GCBC) at Stanford Graduate School of Business.
About the seminar
There is often much discussion about the current Chinese economic environment and how it impacts global economic growth. However, to gauge the true impact of China on the world economy, one should look at what will happen over the long term as the country gets closer to the United States in economic strength and maturity. This talk will look at the current trends in the Chinese political and economic arena, the long-term prospects for Chinese economic growth, and how these trends will impact the global economic order. Examples from the technology and internet industry will be used to demonstrate this effect and how China will shape global industries.
