Today's date is Tuesday, June 22, 2021
Beyond a Trade War: The Future of Chinese Economy : The UWA Business School Economics department invites you to the annual Bateman Lecture by Professor Shang-Jin Wei, Columbia University. Other events...
Professor Wei will dissect the view that the US-China trade is unbalanced and unfair in China’s favor. In addition, to resolve the trade tensions for greater fairness and efficiency, Professor Wei contends that a reciprocal and balanced approach requires policy changes on both sides and reforms of the World Trade Organization (WTO) rules.

With the disappearance of cheap labor as its source of comparative advantage, China needs to move to an innovation based growth model, which is also a source of friction with the United States. Professor Wei assesses the likelihood of success for this transition and points to needed policy reforms.
