This is an encore presentation.

China is a nation in pursuit of a new role on the global stage. But what implications will those reversing trends have on the US and the rest of the world?  In her new book, The Third Revolution, Economy provides an incisive look at the transformative changes underway in China today.

Chinese leader Xi Jinping has unleashed a powerful set of political and economic reforms – the centralization of power under Jinping himself, the expansion of the Communist Party's role in Chinese political, social, and economic life, and the construction of a virtual wall of new regulations surrounding both capital and ideas.

Elizabeth Economy is the C.V. Starr senior fellow and director for Asia studies at the Council on Foreign Relations, and a distinguished visiting fellow at Stanford University's Hoover Institution. A frequent guest and commentator on Chinese domestic and foreign policy, she is also the co-author of By All Means Necessary: How China's Resource Quest is Changing the World.
