Speaker(s): Hank Paulson, Lionel Barber
Chair: Professor Danny Quah

Recorded on 11 May 2015 at Sheikh Zayed Theatre, New Academic Building

Hank Paulson has dealt with the government and business communities of China to a greater extent than any other foreigner alive today. As head of Goldman Sachs and as U.S. Treasury Secretary, he has worked with scores of top Chinese leaders, including Xi Jinping, China's most powerful man in decades. He will talk about his new book, Dealing with China, which takes readers behind closed doors to the future of China's state-controlled capitalism, in conversation with Lionel Barber.

Henry M Paulson Jr is founder and chairman of the Paulson Institute, an independent center devoted to advancing global environmental protection and sustainable economic growth in the United States and China. He served as the 74th Secretary of the Treasury under President George W. Bush and, prior to that, was Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Goldman Sachs.
