Program Overview
China’s profound economic transformation over the past forty years may make the 21st century the “Chinese Century.”  But what’s really happening there?  This study/travel course offers a vivid, personal introduction to China’s modern growth in all of its economic achievements and challenges.  What lessons does China’s complex rise have for U.S. policy, for global business management, for poor countries’ economic policies, and for the Christian church?
