Has China hit a wall?
China’s GDP growth rate has slowed, the housing market has slumped, youth unemployment is high and US sanctions threaten the tech sector’s prospects. The country is no longer the world’s most populous; adverse demographics are starting to bite; and pessimism is spreading across society. Are these fixable problems, or signs of a country that cannot escape the middle-income trap or fulfil the aspirations of its leaders and people?
Answers to these questions matter greatly for China’s people, for those doing business in China and for the stability and peace of East and Southeast Asia. Join Oxford Analytica’s analysts for a dissection of China’s political and economic troubles, an assessment of its prospects and a consideration of how the declinist thesis—whether right or wrong—might inform US policy towards China
