The Center on Global Energy Policy hosted an event in our Leaders in Global Energy Series, featuring a lecture and discussion with Manuel Pinho, Visiting Professor, School of International and Public Affairs, Columbia University and Faculty Affiliate, Center on Global Energy Policy, and Stephen Roach, Senior Lecturer & Senior Fellow of the Jackson Institute, Yale University. They examined the rise and fall of Japan——Asia's first growth miracle——and looked at how lessons from that experience could be applied to China's current economic trajectory and whether Beijing can resist the temptation to follow a similar path, especially at a time when the U.S. and Europe appear to be falling into a Japan-style policy trap. Dr. Pinho and Dr. Roach concluded with a discussion of what potential impacts China's growth will have on energy and environmental policies at home and abroad.
