PERSONAL NOTE: I WROTE A NOTE TO ALLEN CHEN, a student doing his MBA at the most distinguished university in China, Peking University…to tell him why he should read Yukon Huang. Allen came from a well-to-do family in China, who learned very early in his life a few things about the stock market, and was able to make his own money to study from China to UK to working at Wall Street in New York and now finishing his MBA at Peking University in China. I hope you will watch him if you have access to YouTube, ok? steve, usa, december 16, 2018 firstname.lastname@example.org https://getting2knowyou-china.com

I must confess I tried to avoid watching this special program WORLD AFFAIRS: conversations that matter. Somehow I ignored it for months, but today I decided to watch it…so I am sending it to you and share it with you…I hope you can use the youtube to watch this program. After listening to this man, Yukon Huang, (I am sure he is as good as your Justin Lin professor)…I wish President Trump would seek his wisdom, analysis and advice on how to understand China…having lived in China, most things he said make a lot of sense to me. Please allow yourself to listen to his words of wisdom, experiences and understanding of what is going on in China…simply believable and understandable. I hope after seeing this you too might be convinced of the wisdom of his knowledge, and understanding of what is going on in China the past 40 years.
Let me know if you can access this program and what you think of him? I am sure your classes might have talked about him and his ideas. He is someone to deal with..I am going to get a copy of his book right now, and bring it with me to read during my stay in Xiamen.
Happy holidays, Ly always, Steve
World Affairs – CONVERSATIONS THAT MATTER
China’s rapid growth and transition towards a more market-oriented economic system have encouraged spectators to predict massive changes to the Chinese political and social system. However, while growth is slowing, the economy remains sound and the Chinese Communist Party emerged from the 19th Party Congress with its strongest leader in years. What makes experts forecast again and again that China is on the verge of collapse? Yukon Huang, former Country Director for China at the World Bank, cuts through the myths and joins us to discuss his new book, “Cracking the China Conundrum: Why Conventional Economic Wisdom is Wrong.” His in-depth analysis explores the varied dynamics at play in China’s economic growth today and sheds light on why so many China watchers have gotten it wrong. SPEAKER: Yukon Huang Senior Fellow, Asia Program, Carnegie Endowment for International Peace MODERATOR: N. Bruce Pickering Vice President of Global Programs, Asia Society and Executive Director, Asia Society Northern California, Asia Society For more information about this event please visit: http://www.worldaffairs.org/media-lib…
