Common Prosperity: The Path to Common Poverty in China?

September 29, 2021 • 4:00 – 5:00 pm EDT

Please join the CSIS Trustee Chair in Chinese Business and Economics for a roundtable discussion of the origins and implications of China’s heightened effort to achieve “common prosperity.” Through a one-hour interactive discussion, the program will address the economic, political, and societal components of this drive as well as consider its implications for both China and the United States. Important questions we will answer include: What are the main motivations for Xi Jinping and the leadership to move in this direction? Will this program genuinely reduce inequality and reign in the power of greedy high-tech companies on behalf of the common person and create the foundation for long-term inclusive growth? How will U.S. multinational companies in China be affected? How do these developments factor into America’s China policy?

Joyce Chang of JPMorgan, John L. Holden of McLarty Associates, and Scott Rozelle of Stanford University will shed light on these pressing questions surrounding “common prosperity.” Trustee Chair Scott Kennedy will host and moderate the discussion.

This event is made possible through general support to CSIS
