Video Link to Wilson Center Speech

July 9, 2011

As promised, here is the link to the video recording of the speech I gave last week at the Woodrow Wilson International Center for Scholars in Washington, DC, on the topic “The Beijing Consensus: Fact or Fallacy?”  As you listen to my description of what has been happening with the Chinese economy, it’s worth noting the news today that China reported its highest rate of CPI inflation in three years, 6.4%, for the month of June, with food inflation at 14.4%.  It’s also worth checking out this debate, in the New York Times this week, over the debt China has incurred to fund its investment boom.

For those who are curious to check out the New York Times article I referenced in my speech, regarding the “four point” summary of the “Beijing consensus” offered by one Chinese official at Davos, you can find it here.
