Dr. Andrew Wedeman is one of the world's foremost authorities on corruption in China. For this talk, he will present finding from his acclaimed book "Double Paradox" which analyzes why the Chinese economy has continued to grow at a staggering rate even as corruption worsens. Using date from a wide range of sources, Wedeman argues that the Chinese paradox of growth with corruption is a combination of timing, the nature of economic reforms, and the Party's willingness to combat corruption.
