Recognizing China’s ever-growing global importance, Chaminade University has worked to increase the awareness of the Asian giant’s social and economic dynamics. To mark these efforts, Chaminade has established an annual forum to explore a facet of Sino-Capitalism, China’s unique form of capitalism. The Hogan Entrepreneurial Program acts as the secretariat for the event. This opportunity is funded in-part thanks to an Asia-Pacific Speaker endowment established by the late Stanley W. Hong, a Chaminade Regent.
A rich and challenging discussion was led by Dr. Christopher McNally, Chaminade Professor of Political Economy and Adjunct Senior Fellow at the East-West Center. The title of his talk was The US-China Trade War: Causes, Prospects, and Implications. Dr. McNally’s research focuses on comparative capitalisms, especially the nature and logic of China’s capitalist transition.
