Northwest China Council and World Affairs Council presents
What the U.S. Can Learn from China?
by Ann Lee
About the Talk
At a time when many choose to complain about the United States economy, Ann Lee examines how China’s education policies, economic policies, financial markets, foreign policies, and strategic planning can be studied to positively impact our own. Ann challenges much conventional wisdom and offers her ideas of how to cherry pick China’s best practices to foster much needed change at home.
