In this AEI Events Podcast, AEI’s Desmond Lachman welcomes experts on China to discuss the US-Chinese economic relationship, particularly in light of the policies of the new Trump administration. Dr. Lachman sets the stage by emphasizing the importance of the Chinese economy to the American and global economies, pointing out that China faces a credit bubble, capital flight, and the need to transition from its investment-driven, export-led growth to a consumption-based economy.

Following Dr. Lachman’s remarks, a panel discusses China’s transition to a consumption-based economy, the interests of US multinational firms, and whether China is or will be a US economic peer. Panelists include AEI’s Derek Scissors, David Dollar (Brookings Institution), Rory Macfarquhar (Peterson Institute for International Economics), and Brad Setser (Council on Foreign Relations). The discussion is moderated by Desmond Lachman (AEI).

This event took place on March 16, 2017.
