Yukon Huang, former Country Director for China at the World Bank, states that China’s rapid growth and transition towards a more market-oriented economic system have not resulted in massive changes to the Chinese political and social system, as speculated.  However, while growth is slowing, the economy remains sound and is not on the verge of collapse. In this video Yukon Huang cites the myths that’s discussed in his new book, “Cracking the China Conundrum: Why Conventional Economic Wisdom is Wrong”.  The book 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.
