China’s Entrenched Inequality Problem: A Big Data China Event Event May. 27, 2022 | 12:00 PM EDT This event has already occurred. Online Economics, Education, Inequality Join the CSIS Trustee Chair in Chinese Business and Economics and the Stanford Center on China’s Economy and Institutions (SCCEI) for the launch of the second feature of their collaboration, Big Data China, on May 27, 12:00-1:15 pm ET. Our latest digital report, “How Inequality Is Undermining China’s Prosperity,” written by CSIS Fellow Ilaria Mazzocco, highlights the path-breaking work of Stanford scholar Scott Rozelle and his colleagues. By analyzing data on inequality and its sources, the feature shows how trends in China’s labor market, educational attainment, automation, and rural employment are conspiring to harden inequality, which could hurt prospects for growth and undermine political stability. These developments will complicate how the United States should address the China challenge in the years ahead. Following a presentation by Scott Rozelle of Stanford University on the key findings of the analysis and its implications for the Washington policy community, Trustee Chair Fellow Ilaria Mazzocco will moderate the panel discussion and questions from the audience. The distinguished panelists for the event include Mary Gallagher of the University of Michigan, Mary E. Lovely of the Peterson Institute and Syracuse University, and Martin K. Whyte of Harvard University. This event is made possible by generous funding from Stanford University.
