EASC Colloquium: China's Economic Growth, Urbanization and Development Strategy ( Joyce Man, School of Public and Environmental Affairs, IU Bloomington)
China has been experiencing rapid economic growth and urbanization in the past thirty years. Many people are trying to understand what are the driving forces of this growth and questioning whether Chinese growth model is sustainable. This lecture will discuss the trends and patterns of China's economic growth, urbanization process, financing urban growth, housing reform and outcomes, and major risks and challenges facing China. It is hope that this lecture will help our students better understand what is happening in the world second largest economy and will stimulate interest in future research in the related areas.
