Call it the Truce of Osaka. As expected, Presidents Donald Trump and Xi Jinping agreed at the recently concluded G20 meeting to stand down from the worrisome escalation of economic conflict between the United States and China. That is certainly good news. However, while it beats the alternative of expanded tariffs and company-specific sanctions, it leaves unanswered key questions as to what comes next. This presentation will attempt to provide some tentative answers to those questions.
Stephen Roach, a Senior Fellow of Yale University's Jackson Institute of Global Affairs, will share his insights into the U.S.-China conflict on July 12.
Stephen Roach, Ph.D.
Senior Fellow & Jackson Institute of Global Affairs, Senior Lecturer, School of Management, Yale University
Stephen Roach is a Senior Fellow at Yale University’s Jackson Institute of Global Affairs and a Senior Lecturer at Yale School of Management. He was formerly Chairman of Morgan Stanley Asia and the firm’s Chief Economist for the bulk of his 30-year career at Morgan Stanley, heading up a highly regarded team of economists around the world.
Mr. Roach’s current teaching and research program focuses on the impacts of Asia on the broader global economy. At Yale, he has introduced new courses for undergraduates and graduate students on the “The Next China” and “The Lessons of Japan.” His writing and research also addresses globalization, trade policy, the post-crisis policy architecture, and the capital markets implications of global imbalances.
Stephen Roach has long been one of Wall Street’s most influential economists. His work has appeared in academic journals, books, congressional testimony and has been disseminated widely in the domestic and international media. Roach’s opinions on the global economy have been known to shape the policy debate from Beijing to Washington.
His latest book, Unbalanced: The Codependency of America and China (Yale University Press, Jan. 2014) examines the risks and opportunities of the world’s most important economic relationship of the 21st century. His 2009 book, The Next Asia: Opportunities and Challenges for a New Globalization (Wiley), analyzes Asia’s economic imbalances and the dangers of the region’s excess dependence on overextended Western consumers.
