MORE ABOUT THE EVENT: This summer Chinese leaders announced their latest economic strategy, enigmatically called “dual circulation.” Though they were vague on the details, there’s really no mystery about it: it is just the latest in a long line of policies aimed at weaning China from exports and infrastructure investment, and enabling consumer spending and technological upgrades to power economic growth. In this talk, Harvard Professor Dwight Perkins — the dean of China development studies, who first visited the country in 1974 — will draw on his decades of research to explain China’s past economic success and outline why it may be tough to keep it going in future.
MORE ABOUT THE SPEAKER: Dwight H. Perkins is the Harold Hitchings Burbank Research Professor of Political Economy of Harvard University, where he joined the faculty in 1963. He has authored or edited twenty-five books and over one hundred articles on economic history and economic development, with special references to the economies of China, Korea, Vietnam and the other nations of east and southeast Asia. Topics include the transition from central planning to the market, long-term agricultural development, industrial policy, the underlying sources of growth in East Asia, and the role of economic and legal institutions in East Asian growth. He has served as an advisor or consultant to the governments of Korea, China, Malaysia, Vietnam, Indonesia, and Papua New Guinea. He has also been a long-term consultant to the World Bank, the Ford Foundation, and various agencies of the U.S. government including the U.S. Senate Permanent Subcommittee on Investigations. He is a member of the American Philosophical Society and received his BA from Cornell and his MA and PhD from Harvard.
