How has the political economy of state-business ties in China affected the country’s development trajectory? And how do dynamics in China compare with other authoritarian regimes in the region and elsewhere? 

Precarious Ties Book Cover 2

Please join the Trustee Chair for Chinese Business & Economics for this online event featuring Meg Rithmire of Harvard Business School and her new book Precarious Ties: Business and the State in Authoritarian Asia. Rithmire will explain her analysis of state-business ties in China and other countries in Asia, including her conceptual models of the origins and variations of state-business relations. Following the introduction of her argument, we will expand the conversation with a consideration of the economic and political implications for China and U.S.-China relations with two distinguished panelists: Daniel H. Rosen of the Rhodium Group and Joyce Chang of JP Morgan. Scott Kennedy, Senior Adviser and Trustee Chair in Chinese Business and Economics, will host and moderate the discussion, first with the group, and then with the live, online audience. 

Registration is encouraged but not required to attend this event.

This event is made possible through general support to CSIS.
