Rising Frictions in US-China Relations: Sino-capitalism versus Anglo-American Capitalism

After a year of relative quiet, tensions in U.S.-China relations have been rising again in 2010. Trade spats, differences over Internet freedom standards, U.S. arms sales to Taiwan, and China’s management of its currency are all making headlines. Dr. McNally will examine the rising tensions in U.S.-China relations by employing a macro-political economy perspective to argue that China’s reemergence is generating “Sino-capitalism” – a capitalist system that is already global in reach and differs from Anglo-American capitalism in important respects.

Globalization and the Rise of Private Business: China's Transition to Capitalism at the Dawn of the 21st Century

Dr. McNally will explore two daunting challenges facing China at the dawn of the century: the integration of the Chinese economy into the global trading system what will accelerate with China’s entry into the World Trade Organization early next year; and the increasing importance of private business in China’s economy and polity. In particular, he will probe two aspects: the diversification of the Chinese Communist Party’s support base; and the transition of China’s political economy to capitalism.
