China’s Challenges: The Lessons of Japan

Past Event

October 31, 2013

2:00 pm - 3:30 pm

Please join the Center on Global Energy Policy for the next event in our Leaders in Global Energy Series. This event will feature a lecture and discussion with Manuel Pinho, Visiting Professor, School of International and Public Affairs, Columbia University and Faculty Affiliate, Center on Global Energy Policy, and Stephen Roach, Senior Lecturer & Senior Fellow of the Jackson Institute, Yale University. They will begin with an examination of the rise and fall of Japan—Asia’s first growth miracle—and look at how lessons from that experience can be applied to China’s current economic trajectory and whether Beijing can resist the temptation to follow a similar path, especially at a time when the U.S. and Europe appear to be falling into a Japan-style policy trap. Dr. Pinho and Dr. Roach will conclude with a discussion of what potential impacts China’s growth will have on energy and environmental policies at home and abroad. Jason Bordoff, Center Director, will moderate a discussion following the presentation. Registration is required. This event is open to press.
