China’s rise is altering global power relations, reshaping economic debates, and commanding tremendous public attention. Despite extensive media and academic scrutiny, the conventional wisdom about China’s economy is often wrong. Cracking the China Conundrum provides a holistic and contrarian view of China’s major economic, political, and foreign policy issues.

The Henry Jackson Society are delighted to invite you to an event with Yukon Huang, Author of Cracking the China Conundrum and Senior Fellow, Asia Program at the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace. Yukon will address widely accepted yet misguided views in the analysis of China’s economy. He will examine arguments about the causes and effects of China’s possible debt and property market bubbles, trade and investment relations with the Western world, the links between corruption and political liberalization in a growing economy and Beijing’s more assertive foreign policies.

*Copies of the book will be available to purchase for the special price of £15 CASH ONLY*
