Alumni in greater China are invited to meet Professor Linda Lim in Shanghai!

What’s Up With the World Economy?
What is China’s Role?
And What Does the Rest of the World Think?

Linda Lim
Professor of Strategy
Stephen M. Ross School of Business
University of Michigan

Shanghai, China, August 28, 2011

The summer of 2011 has been a turbulent time for the world economy, what with the prolonged European debt crisis, the equally prolonged domestic political fracas over the U.S. debt-ceiling resulting in S&P’s downgrade of U.S. government debt, Japan’s difficulties recovering from the March earthquake and tsunami and its impact on global manufacturing supply-chains, the end of fiscal and monetary stimulus in the developed world, the rise of inflation and asset-bubble fears in emerging markets, volatility in commodity prices and currencies, and an overall slowdown in global economic recovery from the financial crisis and deep recession of 2007-08. The recent plunge in global stock markets has led to fears that another global recession may be developing.

Prof. Lim will consider the implications of all these global and associated regional developments for China’s evolving role in and impact on the world economy, including currency fluctuations, international trade and investment relations, and the strategies of multinational corporations. She will also discuss views of China’s evolving role among other world economic actors, including the U.S., Europe, Latin America and other Asian countries.
