China, Trade and Power Book Launch

October 24, 2018 • 4:00 – 5:30 pm EDT

Since China's accession to the World Trade Organization (WTO) in 2001, its economy has grown at a breakneck pace to become the world's second largest. With its newfound economic sway, China has been rewriting the rules in East Asia and around the globe. In his newest book, China, Trade and Power, author Stewart Paterson argues that China's WTO accession created this situation, precipitating numerous unforeseen negative consequences for the Western liberal order and weakening economic stability and growth for developed nations.
Please join CSIS as we discuss Mr. Paterson’s book, the policy ramifications for the United States, and paths forward for dealing with the challenges China poses for the multilateral trading system.
This event is made possible through the generous support of the Hinrich Foundation.
