AmCham China will host a luncheon with Carl Dahlman, who will discuss his recent book, "The World Under Pressure: How China and India Are Influencing the Global Economy and Environment". The book develops a framework that shows the interdependence between the size of a nation's economy, its trade, finance, technology, environment, security, and global governance.
The rapid rise of China and India is reshaping our global economic and environmental systems, raising major issues of stability, governance, and sustainability. Specifically, unchecked growth by China and India would have the potential to ignite trade, resource, cold, and conventional wars. Moreover, these nations could set in motion monumental challenges related to climate change. The book warns that the current international governance system is not up to the challenges of defusing these frictions. Major powers, including China and India, must do more to address the gathering storm. Developing sustainable economic and social relationships will be difficult, but the cost of putting off reforms would be lower global welfare.
