Unlikely Partners: Chinese Reformers, Western Economists, and the Making of Global China

November 29, 2016 @ 11:00 am - 1:00 pm

Speaker: Julian Gewirtz ’13 

Julian Gewirtz will discuss his forthcoming book, Unlikely Partners: Chinese Reformers, Western Economists, and the Making of Global China, which Harvard University Press will publish in January. Writing for the New Yorker, Evan Osnos summarizes: “The book tells the little-known story of how Chinese intellectuals and leaders, facing a ruined economy at the end of the Cultural Revolution, sought the help of foreign economists to rebuild. Between 1976 and 1993, in a series of exchanges, conferences, and collaborations, Western intellectuals sought not to change China but to help it change itself, and they made indispensable contributions to China’s rise as a global economic power.”
