Meg Rithmire – The Past, Present, and Future of State – Business Relations in China: Learning from Comparisons
October 12 @ 12:00 pm – 1:15 pm
Speaker: Meg Rithmire, F. Warren McFarlan Associate Professor of Business of Administration, Harvard Business School.
Over the last decade, China has gone from high rates of economic growth with private sector participation to state crackdowns on business and slowing growth, if not economic stagnation or crisis. Prof. Rithmire will draw on her research on relationships between the private sector and the party-state to explain the long history of capitalism and capitalists in China, and discuss what can be gained from comparing China’s political economy. Is China like Japan, bound for decades of macroeconomic stagnation, or like Suharto’s Indonesia, one economic crisis away from dissolution?
