The CAA-Chinese Chapter cordially invites you to an evening with Ann Lee, author of the new book, "What the U.S. Can Learn from China: An Open-Minded Guide to Treating Our Greatest Competitor as Our Greatest Teacher."
While America is still reeling from the 2008 financial crisis, high unemployment and a ballooning deficit, China's economy has surged into the second largest in the world and is predicted to surpass the United States' by 2020. Why did China recover so quickly after the global economic meltdown? What accounts for China's extraordinary growth, despite one of the highest corporate tax rates in the world?
Rather than casting China's newfound power, influence and contributions to the global economy in a negative light, Professor Ann Lee details the policies and practices that have made China a global power and isolates what lessons we can learn from our greatest competitor to help America thrive moving forward.
Regardless of your viewpoint on the subject matter, Ann Lee's talk will undoubtedly spark interesting debate amongst those interested not only in China, but U.S. domestic policy.
