China's Economic Emergence: Progress, Pitfalls and Implications

Leading economists at Columbia, including Nobel Laureate Joseph Stiglitz and University Professor Jagdish Bhagwati, addressed China's growth potential and the implications of its increasing influence on the United States and the world economy. Following opening remarks by President Bollinger, speakers at the first panel discussed "The Chinese Economy: Model or Cautionary Tale?" Bhagwati delivered the keynote speech on the first day of the two-day conference. The April 7-8 conference was co-sponsored by the Weatherhead East Asian Institute, the Graduate School of Business, School of Law, Mailman School of Public Health and the Earth Institute.
