The Financial, Innovation, Demographic and International Obstacles to China’s Growth

Abstract: China's growth rate has gone from an annual average of 9.5% in the 1978-2011 period to an expected 6.5% to 7% growth rate in the 2016-2020 period. Is this expectation too pessimistic or too optimistic? This session will discuss four of the main growth obstacles.

Reforming China’s Fiscal System

Abstract: China's fiscal system underwent a comprehensive reform in January 1994. There is great need for another reform in the near future because the many large changes in the Chinese economy since then have rendered the present system highly distortionary (e.g. local government investment vehicles) and ineffective (e.g. income tax).
