YCW Beijing is delighted to invite you to a talk by Timothy Beardson, author and Chairman of Ilex Partners Limited. Mr. Beardson will talk about his new book “Stumbling Giant: The Threats to China’s Future“. The book is a multidisciplinary discussion of the threats to China’s continuing rise, presents bold policy prescriptions addressing these challenges and explains why without substantial reform China is unlikely to replace America as the next superpower. The book explores whether China can go from low-cost manufacturing to innovation, whether it can rescue its environment, the current dysfunctionality of the financial system, the consequences of a defective welfare structure, the evolving role of the Communist Party and, especially, the impact of a looming demographic crisis. The narrative also confronts issues such as the engagement with Africa, cyber hostility, relationships with neighbours, China’s behaviour in the world and its future use of power.
