Hot Topic Discussion: The Rise of Sino-Capitalism

November 15, 12:30pm - 1:15pm
Mānoa Campus, 2515 Dole Street, Moot Court Room, UHM William S. Richardson School of Law

The University of Hawai'i at Mānoa celebrates Mānoa International Education Week, November 13-17, 2018, by hosting Professor Christopher McNally for a Hot Topic Panel Discussion on "The Rise of Sino-Capitalism and its Challenges for the United States."

Description: As China is re-emerging on the international stage as the largest trading power and second largest economy, the liberal international system is being challenged as never before. Economic development in China has generated a novel form of capitalism, Sino-capitalism. This form of capitalism differs from established political economies in the West and Japan. Sino-capitalism combines a forceful role for the state with bottom-up networked private entrepreneurship. While Western observers have often focused on the state's activist role in the Chinese economy, Sino-capitalism is propelled by the interactions of state support and private capital accumulation that have fostered in recent years considerable technological catch-up and even leapfrogging. These advances have brought to the fore the massive technological, economic and financial impacts of Sino-capitalism, and created "freak-outs" in Western capitals, first and foremost in Washington D.C. Trump's trade war and escalating frictions in US-China relations need to be seen against the background of how this novel form of capitalism is challenging established economic powers, especially the United States.
