SAIS China Forum: China's Crisis of Success
SAIS China Forum presents China's Crisis of Success Speaker: Dr. William Overholt, Senior Fellow, Ash Center, Harvard University Moderator: Professor Andrew Mertha, Director, SAIS China Studies China's rise to superpower status has reached a threshold where continued success will require a reinvention of its economy and politics. Dr. William Overholt explores critical social issues of the transition, notably inequality, corruption, environmental degradation, and globalization. He argues that Xi Jinping is pursuing the riskiest political strategy of any important national leader. Alternative outcomes include continued impressive growth and political stability, Japanese-style stagnation, and a major political-economic crisis. William H. Overholt is president of Fung Global Institute and an expert on Asia and US-Asia relations. He is a Senior Fellow at the John F. Kennedy School of Government's Ash Center for Democratic Governance and Innovation, at Harvard University, and is principal of AsiaStrat LLC, a consulting firm.
