Topic: "Sino-Capitalism - China's Reemergence, the Internationalization of the Yuan and the Future of the Global Order"
Speaker: Dr. Christopher A. McNally

Associate Professor of Political Economy, Chaminade University
Non-resident Fellow, East-West Center

As China’s political economy gains in significance, its interactions with other major political economies and its efforts to internationalize the yuan will shape global values, institutions and policies, thereby structuring the international political economy. This seminar envisages China’s reemergence as generating Sino-capitalism – a capitalist system that is already global in reach and that differs from the dominant liberal Anglo-American system of capitalism in important respects.

About the Speaker:
Christopher A. McNally is an Associate Professor of Political Economy at Chaminade University and Nonresident Fellow at the East-West Center in Honolulu, USA. His research focuses on comparative capitalisms, especially the nature and logic of China’s capitalist transition. He is also working on a research project that studies the implications of China’s capitalist reemergence on the global order.

He has held fellowships conducting fieldwork and research at the Asia Research Centre in West Australia, the Institute of Asia Pacific Studies at the Chinese University of Hong Kong and at the Shanghai Academy of Social Sciences. He received his Ph.D. in political science from the University of Washington. He has edited four volumes, including an examination of China’s political economy: China’s Emergent Political Economy – Capitalism in the Dragon’s Lair (Routledge, 2008). He also has authored numerous book chapters, policy analyses, editorials and articles in journals such as Business and Politics, Communist and Post-Communist Studies, Comparative Social Research and World Politics.
