China’s Gilded Age [Webinar]
June 1, 2020 | Register
Why has China grown so fast for so long despite vast corruption? Will corruption lead to the CCP’s collapse? In “China’s Gilded Age: the Paradox of Economic Boom & Vast Corruption”, Yuen Yuen Ang challenges one-dimensional measures of corruption by unbundling the concept into four varieties: petty theft, grand theft, speed money and access money. Ang changes the way we think about corruption and capitalism, not only in China but around the world. Yuen Yuen Ang will discuss her new book with UC San Diego Professor Victor Shih in this webinar.
