China, India, and the Electronic Silk Road: How Surveillance Undermines Commerce

Anupam Chander , Director of the California International Law Center and Martin Luther King, Jr. Hall Research Scholar at University of California at Davis

Why did India, and not China, become the world's back office? Why didn't China, the world champion of the outsourcing of goods, translate its success into exporting services? What lessons does this hold for Silicon Valley? Drawing from his new book, The Electronic Silk Road: How the Web Binds The World Together Through Commerce, Chander will explore these questions, focusing on the importance of trust to developing Internet services. Anupam Chander's research focuses on the regulation of globalization and digitization. He earned an A.B., magna cum laude in Economics from Harvard University in 1989 and a J.D. from Yale Law School in 1992.
