ChinaPower Debate on US-China Economic Cooperation
As part of the Seventh Annual ChinaPower Conference debate series, the CSIS China Power Project invites you to attend a virtual debate on the following proposition: “China can work with the United States to provide cooperative global economic leadership to help the world economy function effectively.” This event will take place on Tuesday, January 24, 2023 from 9:30 am – 11:00 am ET.
Heightened competition between the United States and China has raised doubts about whether the two countries can work together. Some hope that shared interests in global economic stability can enable cooperation. Others argue that the United States and China offer different economic growth models and approaches to policy and competition. China’s blend of market-led economy and state intervention is at odds with the United States’ market economics. As a result, they contend, China will not be able to work with the United States to provide stable economic leadership for the world economy.
This debate will feature two leading economists to explore whether China can work with the United States to provide cooperative global economic leadership. Dr. Fred Bergsten, Nonresident Senior Fellow and Director Emeritus at the Peterson Institute for International Economics, will argue for the proposition. Mr. Daniel Rosen, Partner at Rhodium Group and Senior Associate (Non-resident) with the Trustee Chair in Chinese Business and Economic at CSIS, will argue against the proposition.
The debate will include pre- and post-event polls. For more information and to cast your vote for or against a proposition, follow @ChinaPowerCSIS on Twitter.
This event is made possible by the generous support of the Carnegie Corporation of New York.
