Speech at Wilson Center in DC
I will be giving a speech in Washington, DC this Thursday, sponsored by the Kissinger Institute on China and the United States, part of the Woodrow Wilson International Center for Scholars. I welcome you to attend or watch it online.
The topic of my talk is “The Beijing Consensus: Fact or Fallacy?” I’ll be discussing the “China model” that has attracted so much interest in the wake of the global economic crisis. I will try to get to the bottom of exactly what it means, and to what extent it poses a viable and sustainable alternative to the free trade / free markets model that has, at least until now, prevailed in the West.
The talk will take place at 10:00am – 11:30am on Thursday, June 30, at the Wilson Center’s 4th Floor Conference Room, which is located in the southeast wing of the Ronald Reagan Federal Building, 1300 Pennsylvania Avenue, NW, in Washington, DC. The closest Metro station is Federal Triangle on the blue and orange lines. A photo ID is required to enter. For detailed directions, click here. To RSVP to attend the event, click here.

For those who are unable to attend in person, the Wilson Center will host a live webcast online. For information on viewing the webcast, click here. If the webcast is recorded and posted online, I will post a link to it on this blog.
