In Line Behind A Billion People

Video description

Much of what you know about China is wrong. Within a decade, China will have the world's largest economy. But that is less important than most realize--and other, largely ignored aspects of China's future are much more important. In their enlightening book, In Line Behind a Billion People, two leading China experts turn conventional wisdom on its head, explaining why China's economic growth will constrain rather than empower it. In this interactive HBR webinar, pioneering political analyst Damien Ma and global economist Bill Adams reveal why, after 35 years of ferocious growth, China's future will be driven by the same fundamental reality that has shaped it for millennia: scarcity. This includes scarcity of natural resources, which is creating an unbridled competition for limited supplies, as well as other scarcities that limit China's power and progress. China's scarcity issues will affect the entire world, with far-reaching implications on products, prices, and politics.
