China’s rise is altering global power relations, reshaping economic debates, and commanding tremendous public attention. Despite extensive media and academic scrutiny, the conventional wisdom about China’s economy is often wrong. Yukon Huang will provide a holistic and contrarian view of China's major economic, political, and foreign policy issues and relate these macro-level topics to the overall business environment in China with a focus on foreign-invested enterprises operating in China.

Yukon Huang's recently released book “Cracking the China Conundrum: Why Conventional Economic Wisdom Is Wrong” addresses widely accepted yet misguided views in the analysis of China’s economy. He examines arguments about the causes and effects of China’s possible debt and property market bubbles, trade and investment relations with the Western world, the links between corruption and economic liberalization and Beijing’s more assertive foreign policies. Huang explains that such misconceptions arise in part because China’s economic system is unprecedented in many ways—namely because it’s driven by both the market and state—which complicates the task of designing accurate and adaptable analysis and research.

Further, China’s size, regional diversity, and uniquely decentralized administrative system poses difficulties for making generalizations and comparisons from micro to macro levels when trying to interpret China’s economic state accurately. Cracking the China Conundrum provides an enlightening and corrective viewpoint on several major economic and political foreign policy concerns currently shaping China’s economic environment.
