US-China Economic Relations Revisited

The Economic Club of Florida welcomes members of the public to register to attend our monthly luncheon. There is a luncheon fee of $40, payable at the door with a check or major credit card. (You may also attend with a current member, who would simply list you as a guest on their RSVP confirmation and pay a reduced Guest Fee of $35.) After your visit, we hope that you choose to become a member of the Club!

She was one of the first American graduate students allowed to enter China to conduct research after President Jimmy Carter normalized relations in 1979. Today, as founding director of the China Research Center in Atlanta, Dr. Penelope Prime will share her updated analysis of the macro political-economic environment of today’s China. 

You’ll learn how China views what it’s doing internally and around the world as compared to the U.S. view of events. Plus, what the Chinese people think about Americans, based on her many return visits to China over the past 40 years.

Dr. Prime is a retired professor of economics and international business at Georgia State University. Over her career, she took more than 400 students to China for study. Fluent in Mandarin Chinese, her career includes teaching economics at both U.S. and Chinese universities and the Ministry of Economics in Taiwan. She also served for seven years as a research analyst for the U.S. Census Bureau’s Eurasian Branch. She is the co-editor of two books: Global Giant: Is China Changing the Rules of the Game? and Taiwan’s Democracy: Economic and Political Challenges, and the author of many articles. This is a program you won’t want to miss!
