Online Event: A Book Talk on "The Myth of Chinese Capitalism: The Worker, The Factory, and The Future of the World"
Please join us for this online event featuring Dexter Roberts, fellow at the University of Montana’s Maureen and Mike Mansfield Center and author of the new book, The Myth of Chinese Capitalism: The Worker, The Factory, and The Future of the World. In this pathbreaking work, Roberts looks at one of the biggest questions facing China: will it successfully make the transition from its decades-old role as “factory to the world” – reliant on cheap, low-skilled workers – and become a superpower with its own globally competitive companies and leading-edge technology? Roberts brings to life the problems that China and its people face today as they attempt to overcome a divisive system that poses a serious challenge to the country’s future development. In so doing, he paints a boot-on-the-ground cautionary picture of China for a world now held in its financial thrall. In this online event, Roberts will share the findings of his new book, and Scott Kennedy, Senior Adviser and Trustee Chair in Chinese Business and Economics, will host, offer his initial reactions, and moderate the discussion with the audience.
