What Happens When China Becomes Number One?

Albert H. Gordon Lecture

Presented by Dean Kishore Mahbubani, Professor in the Practice of Public Policy, Lee Kuan Yew School of Public Policy, National University of Singapore

Moderated by Dean David T. Ellwood, Scott M. Black Professor of Political Economy, Harvard Kennedy School


For the first time in more than 200 years, a non-Western power, China, will have the largest economy in the world, changing the world order. What are the priorities of Chinese leaders? What impact have American policies had on China? Will China behave as America does when China becomes number one?
