China in the World Economy: Past, Present and Future

Jun Fu- Professor of Political Economy and Executive Dean of the School of Government,Peking University

The Stanford Center for Sustainable Development & Global Competitiveness (CSDGC) is pleased to invite all students and staff members to a public lecture on fast developing country, China.

Of late China has experienced dramatic economic growth. Is China a case of divergence or convergence by global standards? Drawing upon his book Guofu Zhidao (The Dao of the Wealth of Nations), Professor Fu puts China's economic performance in both historical and comparative perspectives, and examines the extent to which China's growth story of recent decades is unique, or otherwise, and whether that story implies what challenges lie ahead for China and the world economy.

Jun Fu is Professor of Political Economy and Executive Dean of the School of Government at Peking University. He is the author of Institutions and Investments: Foreign Direct Investment in China during an Era of Reforms (Michigan University Press), and has co-authored (in Chinese) Antitrust and Competition Policy: Economic Theory, International Experience, and Implications for China (Peking University Press). His recent publication (in Chinese) is The Dao of the Wealth of Nations (Peking University Press). Currently president of the Harvard Alumni Association in Beijing, Professor Fu appears frequently on CCTV News as a commentator, and speaks regularly at the World Economic Forum. He received his BA from Beijing Foreign Studies University, LLB from China's Foreign Affairs College, and AM and PhD both from Harvard University.
