Summary Report: Blankert Launches New Book: China Rising: Will the West Be Able to Cope?

Synopsis:

Jan Willem Blankert will present a short overview of his book China Rising: Will the West Be Able to Cope?, published by World Scientific in their Series on 21st Century Business. Key questions in international economics and business are addressed in this timely book. Why do some countries get rich and other countries don't? Does one country's gain mean another country's loss? How do we address the biggest challenge of all: the fact that out environment suffers when we all want to have our share of the cake? The book covers issues such as the drivers of economic growth and international competition, and pollution and the division of labor. It focuses on China's emergence and also offers examples of other countries to provide context and perspective. Written in a jargon-free style, yet extremely well-researched, it is suitable for economists and non-economists alike.
