The China Price
Alexandra Harney, a former editor for The Financial Times, served as the newspaper’s South China correspondent from 2003 to 2006.
Alexandra Harney spoke about her book The China Price: The True Cost of Chinese Competitive Advantage, published by Penguin. In her book, Ms. Harney exposes the cost of Chinese industrialization. She argues that the social and environmental cost of Chinese industrialization is unsustainable and must be exposed by the western companies that now encourage it. In her discussion, Ms. Harney is joined by Satu Limaye, director of the East-West Center, and Elliot Kimberly, a fellow at the Institute for International Economics. The panelists responded to questions from members of the audience.
