The Global Significance of China's Rise

A Road Scholar Program by Xiaosi Yang

How fast is China rising into a world superpower? With a non-democratic political leadership, 1.3 billion people requiring three meals a day, and a centrally-planned economic system that is among the hardest to reform in the world, how can China make it? To put it another way, how and why is China still rising and not collapsing? This presentation will address these questions by enumerating the economic, geo-political, cultural, and historical significance of China’s rise. Learn why the potential of the Chinese has been constantly underestimated.
