China’s Economy at the Crossroads: contemporary Challenges and Lessons of the Past

Kenneth Pomeranz, UCI Chancellor’s Professor of History
University of California, Irvine

Thursday, February 22, 7:30 p.m.
Templeton Student Center, Council Chamber

Respected teacher, researcher, and writer, Professor Kenneth Pomeranz has authored numerous publications, among them The Great Divergence: China, Europe, and the Making of the Modern World Economy (2000), and with Steven Topik, The World that Trade Created: Society, Culture and the World Economy, 1400 to the Present (1999). His research interests include the study of the reciprocal influences of state, society, and economy in late Imperial and twentieth-century China, re-framing the growth of the world economy as the intersection of efforts emanating from many places, and tracing its surprising and sometimes perverse impacts on the lives of so-called “ordinary people.” He was elected to the American Academy of Arts and Sciences in 2006.

The Steinhardt Lecture in Economics is free and open to the general public.
