Corporate Briefing: Nicholas Lardy on Sustaining China's Economic Growth
Co-sponsored by the Federal Reserve Bank of San Francisco
Thanks to its strong stimulus program, China came through the global financial crisis almost unscathed. But the stimulus did not address longer-term structural problems that China must solve. Dr. Nicholas Lardy will explain the reforms China must undertake in order to sustain its world-beating growth performance.
