Playing Our Game: Author Edward Steinfeld

Playing Our Game: Author Edward Steinfeld
Author Edward Steinfeld discusses his recently published "Playing Our Game: Why China's Rise Doesn't Threaten the West." Dr. Steinfeld explores how contemporary Chinese enterprises actually engage the global economy and participate in a global division of labor, challenging the idea that Chinese firms are rising at their Western counterparts expense. He also challenges the claim that political change in China has lagged behind economic transformation. Steinfeld argues instead that the Chinese growth story is fundamentally about Chinas internalization of the rules and practices of advanced industrial nations. China has grown not by conjuring up its own unique political-economic institutions, but instead by increasingly harmonizing with our own.

Dr. Steinfeld is an associate professor of political science at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, director of the MIT-China Program and co-director of the MIT Industrial Performance Centers China Energy Group.

Dambisa Moyo: How the West Was Lost

Dambisa Moyo: How the West Was Lost
Dambisa Moyo daringly claims that the West can no longer afford to simply regard global up-and-comers as menacing gatecrashers. In a world where Western economies hover on the brink of recession while emerging economies post double-digit growth rates, Moyo calls out the economic myopia of the West and the radical solutions that it needs to adopt to salvage its global economic power.

A former consultant for the World Bank and former emerging markets investment banker at Goldman Sachs, Moyo was named by Time Magazine as one of the "100 Most Influential People in the World," and was nominated to the World Economic Forum's Young Global Leaders Forum.

Thomas Friedman on America and China

Thomas Friedman on America and China
As the balance of energy, innovation, trade, wealth, power and influence continues to rapidly shift throughout the world, China and the US are finding themselves forced to confront a difficult process of constant adjustment. At the same time, much of what we have grown accustomed to when thinking about our own country and China over the past century is called into question.

We will not only find ourselves needing to recalibrate how we look at and treat each other, but how we look at our own political and economic systems. In short, more than at any time in our living memory, this reformatting of our relationship with China will require us to be better informed about what is going on in China, more politically astute about the strengths and weaknesses of each system and ever more diplomatically flexible about how we deal with each other.

The enormity of this challenge and the suddenness with which it has come upon us, is the subject of this "on-stage conversation" between New York Times columnist Thomas Friedman and long-time China writer and Arthur Ross Director of the Asia Society's Center on US-China Relations, Orville Schell.
