Event Details

This talk is part of the Greenberg Distinguished Speaker Series.

Event Description

With a trade deal at hand, will harmony be restored to the US-China relationship? Or is this a weak deal that doesn't temper the existential fears that both nations have of each other - China's fear of containment and US fears of its economic future? What would a strong deal look like? Could a weak deal lead to lasting tensions and a protracted economic Cold War? Stephen Roach will share his insights into the U.S.-China conflict on March 22.

    Stephen Roach

    Senior Fellow at Jackson Institute of Global Affairs, Senior Lecturer, School of Management, Yale University

    Stephen Roach is a Senior Fellow at Yale University’s Jackson Institute of Global Affairs and a Senior Lecturer at Yale School of Management. He was formerly Chairman of Morgan Stanley Asia and the firm’s Chief Economist for the bulk of his 30-year career at Morgan Stanley, heading up a highly regarded team of economists around the world.

    Mr. Roach’s current teaching and research program focuses on the impacts of Asia on the broader global economy. At Yale, he has introduced new courses for undergraduates and graduate students on the “The Next China” and “The Lessons of Japan.” His writing and research also addresses globalization, trade policy, the post-crisis policy architecture, and the capital markets implications of global imbalances.

    Stephen Roach has long been one of Wall Street’s most influential economists. His work has appeared in academic journals, books, congressional testimony and has been disseminated widely in the domestic and international media. Roach’s opinions on the global economy have been known to shape the policy debate from Beijing to Washington.

    His latest book, Unbalanced: The Codependency of America and China (Yale University Press, Jan. 2014) examines the risks and opportunities of the world’s most important economic relationship of the 21st century. His 2009 book, The Next Asia: Opportunities and Challenges for a New Globalization (Wiley), analyzes Asia’s economic imbalances and the dangers of the region’s excess dependence on overextended Western consumers.
