About The Event

We often hear that China is more economically competitive than the United States, especially in manufacturing, but what does that mean? And is it true? Jeremy Haft will cut through the rhetoric and misleading economic metrics to consider America’s true competitive strengths and weaknesses compared to China’s. Spoiler alert: the reality is not what you might expect! Come find out why historians who have written off the next century as Chinese may need to retract their predictions.
