Henry Paulson

[tabs style=”default”] [tab title=”Details”]

China’s role as a modern economic superpower is well-known, but a recent downturn has some analysts questioning whether it’ll stay that way. According to former U.S. Treasury Secretary Henry Paulson, China’s current powerhouse status might not be sustainable. Dealing with China takes a look at the history of that country’s rapid economic rise and what moves it’s currently making to maintain this status. Also drawing on his years of experience as Goldman Sachs’ CEO, Paulson will talk about challenges to China’s state-controlled economy–including censorship and environmental issues–explain why its current system “won’t work long term,” and offer a glimpse into the future of U.S.-China business relations. He’ll appear in conversation with Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella.
