Growth Dynamics in China and India: getting the story right

Professor Yasheng Huang, MIT Sloan School of Management, will give a public lecture at the London School of Economics and Political Science (LSE) on Wednesday 11 October. He will explore growth dynamics in China and India.

Many in the academia and the business community believe that China's economic miracle is a result of its substantial infrastructural investments and its huge Foreign Direct Investment (FDI) inflows. India, by comparison, is struggling with backward infrastructures and a low level of FDI. This presentation disputes this view and argues that China has outperformed India mainly because of its historically high investments in soft infrastructures - mainly in its basic education and health.

Yasheng Huang is an associate professor in the area of international management at the MIT Sloan School of Management.

Howard Davies, Director of LSE, will chair this event.

Growth Dynamics in China and India: getting the story right is on Wednesday 11 October 2006 at 6.30pm in the Old Theatre, Old Building, LSE, Houghton Street, London WC2A. This event is free and open to all with no ticket required.
