Red Ink: Estimating Chinese Industrial Policy Spending in Comparative Perspective

May 24, 2022 • 9:00 – 10:15 am EDT

Please join the CSIS Economics Program and the CSIS Trustee Chair in Chinese Business and Economics for the launch of the report, “Red Ink: Estimating Chinese Industrial Policy Spending in Comparative Perspective,” on May 24th, 9:00-10:15 am ET. This ambitious report quantifies the size of total industrial policy spending by China and compares it to seven other economies (the United States, Japan, South Korea, Taiwan, Germany, France, and Brazil). The report and the event aim to stimulate a scholarly and policy-oriented conversation on the value of macro-level studies of industrial policy spending as well as the implications for policies meant to effectively restrain and discipline such activity.

Following a presentation of the report’s key findings by co-authors Economics Program Senior Fellow Gerard DiPippo and Trustee Chair Fellow Ilaria Mazzocco, panelists will provide initial commentary and address implications of the report findings. Panelists include Réka Juhász of Columbia University, Jehan Sauvage of the OECD, and Yao Yang of Peking University. Trustee Chair Scott Kennedy, report co-author and editor, will moderate the discussion.

This event is made possible by generous funding from the U.S. Department of State.
