      George Magnus - Red Flags: Why Xi’s China is in Jeopardy

      A number of students tickets are available. For more information, please contact events@cceia.org. Under President Xi Jinping, China has become a large and confident power both at home and abroad, but the country also faces serious challenges including debt, "the middle income trap," the renminbi, and an aging population. In Red Flags, George Magnus argues that Xi's authoritarian and repressive philosophy is ultimately not compatible with the country's economic aspirations. How do the political challenges at home and abroad threaten China's continued rise? Can Xi Jinping, who may be president-for-life, be open to reform? George Magnus is an associate at the China Centre at Oxford University, research associate at the School of Oriental and African Studies (SOAS), University of London, and formerly chief economist of UBS.
