The Origins and Dynamics of Crony Capitalism in China
February 9 @ 4:00 pm - 5:30 pmFree
A discussion and book signing by Minxin Pei on his new book. Minxin Pei is the Tom and Margot Pritzker ’72 Professor of Government at Claremont McKenna College, where he also directs the Keck Center for International and Strategic Studies. In this talk, he will reveal compelling insights from over 200 hundred corruption cases involving multiple officials and businessmen from his new book “China’s Crony Capitalism.”
Pei traces the origins of China’s present-day troubles to the series of incomplete reforms from the post-Tiananmen era that decentralized the control of public property without clarifying its ownership. It created a legacy of criminality and entrenched privilege that he believes will make any movement toward democracy difficult and disorderly.
