Henry Paulson with Satya Nadella: Challenges to China's Economic Future + Private Reception
*As of 6/13/15, the pre-event reception is sold out* Hear Former Treasury Secretary Henry Paulson, MBA '70, in conversation with Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella on China's economy. Before the event, meet Henry Paulson at a private reception.
China's role as a modern economic superpower is well known, but a recent downturn has some analysts whether it'll stay that way. According to former U.S. Treasury Secretary Henry Paulson, China's current powerhouse status might not be sustainable. Dealing with China takes a look at the history of that country's rapid economic rise and what moves it's currently making to maintain this status. Also drawing on his years of experience as Goldman Sachs' CEO, Paulson will talk about challenges to China's state-controlled economy -- including censorship and environmental issues -- explain why its current system "won't work long term," and offer a glimpse into the future of U.S.-China business relations. He'll appear in conversation with Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella.
