In just 35 years, China transformed itself from an impoverished agrarian economy into an industrial powerhouse that produces nearly half of the world’s industrial goods. How did it accomplish this in such a short time? St. Louis Fed economist Yi Wen, a native of China, will discuss the country's recent transformation, as well as what it will take for China to continue its hyper growth and for it to eventually become a high-income nation. He will also address how the U.S. can benefit from China's rise and whether poor nations can emulate its success.

Following his presentation, Wen will be joined by fellow St. Louis Fed economists William R. Emmons and Subhayu Bandyopadhyay for a panel discussion and Q&A with the audience. Julie Stackhouse, senior vice president of the St. Louis Fed's Banking Supervision and Regulation division, will moderate.

This presentation is part of the St. Louis Fed's evening discussion series, called Dialogue with the Fed: Beyond Today's Financial Headlines
