Can China Save the World?

Chinese and international political and business leaders now look to Chinese consumers to replace their American and European counterparts and rescue the global economy.
Pressure for the Chinese to consume more is certain to continue in coming years. But what are the implications for China and the world of Chinese consumers adopting the lifestyles of the middle classes in developed economies?
Dr. Karl Gerth, a university lecturer in modern Chinese history from Oxford University, will explain how - from the brands we buy to the biosphere we inhabit - we are all being affected by the everyday choices made by ordinary Chinese, whether we do business there or not.
The lecture is scheduled for Thursday, Sept. 8, from 6-7:30 pm at 145 Greene Hall.
