Description

The recent downturn in the Chinese economy has become a focal point of global attention, with some analysts warning that China is edging dangerously close to economic meltdown. Is it possible that the second largest economy in the world could collapse and drag the rest of the world with it? Or will China simply implode under the strain of its many problems and recede from the world stage like Japan? Does it have the resilience and preparedness to tackle the multiplicity of economic challenges it faces? In this penetrating essay, leading expert on China's economic relations Ann Lee explains why China's economy will not sink us all and what policy options it is drawing on to mitigate against such a catastrophic scenario. Dissecting China's economic challenges with realistic clarity, she makes a compelling case for China's continued economic robustness in multiple sectors in the years ahead.

Review Text

"Bold and flexible leadership is likely to sustain bright economic prospects for China despite its slowing growth rate and aging population. That is the bottom line of this illuminating analysis of how challenges in the world's second largest economy are being met."
James Hoge, Editor of Foreign Affairs, 1991-2010

"In this well-informed book Ann Lee asks "Will China's economy collapse?" To answer this profound question, she looks deep below the surface to examine the stability of China's governance structure, economic growth model, financial system and geopolitical situation. Anyone interested in China's future and its global implications would do well to read this book."

Review quote

"Bold and flexible leadership is likely to sustain bright economic prospects for China despite its slowing growth rate and aging population. That is the bottom line of this illuminating analysis of how challenges in the world s second largest economy are being met. Despite critics' alarms to the contrary, President Xi Jinping is keeping China headed towards an innovative, market-based system. The West may find some useful lessons in the deft use of monetary policy, anti-corruption efforts and tax incentives." - James Hoge, Editor Foreign Affairs magazine, 1991-2010
