Description

In the ninth Sokwanlok Distinguished Lecture on China, Weijian Shan, economist, investor and best-selling author will share his odyssey of living through the trauma and turmoil of Mao’s Cultural Revolution to become one of Asia’s most successful financiers. Combined with his experience as a professor at the Wharton School and a leading investor, his background gives him a unique perspective on China and the U.S. Shan’s story is one of courage, hope and perseverance to dream of a better future in dismal circumstances.

A reception will follow the event.

Shan’s memoir, "Out of the Gobi: My Story of China and America", will be available for sale and signing.
