China and the United States: Co-operation and Competition – A Macro-Finance Approach

Webinar Overview


In recent years, we have seen strains in the economic and financial relationship between China and the United States. There will not be a decoupling but the contact points in the relationship will change as the two countries compete and cooperate at the same time.

Together with Professor Ron Schramm from Columbia University, who specialises in research related to the Chinese economy and international finance, we explored the complex and ever-evolving relationship between the world’s two largest economies. 


During this webinar, we discussed the following topics:

  • The Direction for Key Economic Drivers in the Chinese Economy
  • Issues of Data Measurement with Policy Implications
  • The Evolution from Trade to External Finance
  • Quality of Growth vs. Quantity of Growth in China
  • Summary and Outlook for the US/China Relationship
