Three decades ago, China was a rural economy with barely any exports. Last year, China succeeded Japan as the worlds second largest economy. Many predict it will be larger than the United States by 2020.
Ann Lee will provide an unvarnished assessment of Chinas political economy and governance structure that can be applied to other governments regardless of ideology. Her message to Westerners: stop whining about the competition and stop treating China as the enemy. Rather than demonizing China, a more productive use of time and resources is to learn from this rising power in order to maximize the idle talent of millions of people.
Ann Lee is an adjunct professor at New York University, teaching finance and economics, and a senior fellow at the progressive think tank organization DEMOS.
She was also a visiting graduate economics professor at Beijing University and an adjunct finance professor at the Lubin School of Business at Pace University. Before that, she was an investment banker and partner at multi-billion dollar hedge fund firms.
Born in China and raised in the States, she has the unique perspective of understanding both worlds. Ms. Lee was educated at UC Berkeley, Princetons Woodrow Wilson School of International Affairs, and Harvard Business School.
She has served as a consultant to the Committee of Economic Development and the McKinsey Global Institute, and her articles have appeared in the Wall Street Journal, Financial Times, Forbes, Worth, and many other publications.
