Virtual Event Virtual Event

Economic transformation in both the U.S. and China has created winners and losers in its respective society. While some regions are thriving, others have struggled. In this joint event organized by LRCCS, USHCA, and Taubman, we have invited the leading experts on shrinking cities to explore the lessons learned from the post-industrial shrinking cities in both the U.S. and China and how both countries are learning to help the communities that are left behind in the face of technology and global changes.

Capital Flow Between the U.S. & China: The Winners and Losers

China and the U.S. have been deeply engaged with each other in many dimensions over the past two decades, but the recent de-integration between these two countries poses a real threat to the global economy.

This event is part of USHCA’s ongoing series, The Way Forward, where we discuss different ideas and initiatives used by the US and China and how they can be applied to the Heartland region.
