Dr. Justin Yifu Lin, Panel Presentation, "Demystifying the Chinese Economic Miracle" - Panel Presentation, May 26th, 2014 at UBC

Leading economist Justin Yifu Lin explained China’s economic miracle in a panel presentation to a packed room of UBC faculty and students at the Liu Institute for Global Issues on May 26, 2014. Please find a link to the video and photos here. The presentation followed Dr. Lin’s Honorary Degree ceremony, which can be viewed online. The talk was sponsored by The Vancouver School of Economics and the UBC China Council.

Dr. Lin is China’s most prominent economist and a provocative thinker on why some countries develop more successfully than others and on his own country’s remarkable path to economic superpower. The widely published author and former Chief Economist and Senior Vice-President of the World Bank has pushed the frontiers of global thinking on economic development and the role of government in promoting economic growth. His predictions on China’s economy have repeatedly been proven correct. He is one of his government’s most influential advisers on economic policy and reform.
