China’s Economic Miracle: Prosperity and Inequality
2 June 2020 | 20:00 - 22:00
While China overtook the U.S. last year to become the country with the most people among the world’s richest 10%, some regions and social groups have stayed behind, as inequality increased significantly over the last decades as well. And at a time when the Chinese government is investing heavily in the economy of the future, an ageing population, overheated property markets, and more recently, the Corona Virus, are only some of the economic challenges that need to be overcome. This evening we plunge into the Chinese economy and discuss rapid urbanisation, trends in rural areas and the fate of those who have stayed behind.
This session of our “The many faces of modern China” lecture series will be streamed online and is freely accessible to all through the De Balie website. Make sure to tune in at 20:00 on June 2nd!
Time and date: June 2, 20:00-22:00
