ChinaTalk with Tom Orlik

China is taking on an increasing amount of debt, on an unprecedented level anywhere else, to boost its economic growth, which is among the largest in the world. This financially risky behavior may lead to a potential crash. Especially, during the crisis caused by the COVID-19 pandemic and an ongoing “trade-war” with the United States. How has the financial situation of the Asian giant changed? How does it look like today? What financial challenges is China facing? What impact do the recent political decisions made by the United States have on China’s financial and economic situation? What might be the economic consequences of the China – US rivalry? What could contribute to the economic crash of China and how would it impact the rest of the world?What are the potential prospects and challenges for Polish economic engagement with China?

We posed these questions to Tom Orlik, Bloomberg’s Chief Economist, and author of a book “China: The Bubble that Never Pops”, which presents the financial and economic phenomenon of heavily indebted China and the country’s situation during the pandemic. The meeting will be hosted by Associate Professor Marcin Jacoby, Head of the Department of Asian Studies at SWPS University, and Zbigniew Niesobędzki, Ph.D., President of the Polish Chinese Business Council - a partner of the ChinaTalk series.

ChinaTalk is a series of interviews with leading global experts on China and East Asia, produced jointly by the Polish Chinese Business Council (PCBC) and SWPS University.
