World Affairs Council of Greater Houston says
We often hear that China is more economically competitive than the United States, especially in manufacturing, but what does that mean? And is it true? Jeremy Haft will cut through the rhetoric and misleading economic metrics to consider America’s true competitive strengths and weaknesses compared to China’s. Spoiler alert: the reality is not what you might expect! Come find out why historians who have written off the next century as Chinese may need to retract their predictions.

For almost two decades, Jeremy Haft has been building companies on the front lines in China. He has overseen hundreds of sourcing and import/export programs between American and Chinese enterprises in a wide variety of industries and agriculture, spanning from shipbuilding and refineries to auto parts and medical supplies to maple syrup and cowhides. Haft’s current start-up is a public-private partnership, funded by a grant from the Empire State Development Corporation, to build export markets in China for New York agriculture.

Haft is an adjunct professor at Georgetown University’s School of Foreign Service and McDonough School of Business. He has conducted many briefings about Chinese trade and U.S. competitiveness with members of Congress, ambassadors, senior military officers, and the business community. His analysis has also been featured in The Wall Street Journal, The Financial Times, NPR, BBC, and cable news, among other media outlets.

Haft’s book, Unmade in China: The Hiddle Truth About China’s Economic Miracle, will be available for purchase and signing at the event.
