China’s economic rise — which brought hundreds of millions of its citizens out of poverty, and drove about one quarter of global GDP growth over the past two decades, has been among the most consequential events of the past century.

However, like many countries, China’s economy today faces deep challenges. To discuss some of these challenges, as well as the drivers of China’s growth over the past decades, EconoFact Chats welcomes back Eswar Prasad of Cornell University.

Eswar is the Tolani Senior Professor of Trade Policy at Cornell University and a Senior Fellow at the Brookings Institution.
