In a new book, Dr. Nicholas R. Lardy, China scholarat the Peterson Institute for International Economics draws upon recent economic data to trace how China's support of state-owned enterprises has begun to diminish the role of the market and private firms in China's economy. Dr. Lardy argues that only through aggressive market-oriented reforms can China return to the significant growth experienced in previous decades.

Please join us for a lunch program on April 23 where Dr. Lardy will discuss the impact of revived state control over China's economy, and prospects for future growth.
