Is China Buying the World?


Saturday 11 February 2017

Xinwei Shi, a PhD in the business school, will be giving our second talk of the year.

Here's his abstract: China has overtaken Japan to become the world's second-largest economy, a title Japan has held for more than 40 years. Also, China has become the second-largest economy in terms of its outward foreign direct investment flow. ‘Is China buying the world’, as some scholars argued that. What factors really determine Chinese firms’ OFDI (outward foreign direct investment) behaviors?

As always we'll be meeting in Empty Shop at 3:45 PM.
