Understanding China

Beyond the Economic Miracle of the Past 20 Years

Tuesday, October 11, 2011

Time: 6PM – 8PM

Location: College of Business Room 107




Dr. Jeff Allender and Dr. Roger Pauly will lead this lecture and discussion on Understanding China.

Almost all the current news on China is about their rapid economic growth and ascension towards becoming a world superpower, both economically and militarily.  This is often presented as if it was a complete surprise to the West or is a major threat to our existence. Through an interdisciplinary approach combining history, geography,
culture, and natural resources, we will show how China came to their current situation, and what their strengths and weaknesses are that will unfold in the future.  We will also show their similarities and
differences with America’s similar ascension to power a century ago.



Dr. Jeff Allender
Dr. Roger Pauly
