AMP China Series: The Economics of China

February 27th, 2015

Episode 279 of 409 episodes

The slowdown in China's economic growth is making headlines around the world, raising a number of important questions. Given that the Chinese Party-state’s political legitimacy is to some extent based on improving economic well-being, to what extent will the slowdown in GDP affect political and social stability in China? What ramifications will it have for the Australian and global economies? At a more fundamental level, how do we reconcile the apparently deepening contradictions between Mao-era ideology and market-oriented reform? Join John Garnaut, Angus Bell and Merriden Varrall in an in-depth discussion of these issues, drawing on their many years of experience working on China.
