Can China Take Down the World Economy?
China’s Second Transition: Maturity and Implications for the U.S.

Saturday, March 12, 2016 in Denver

If you teach international trade and finance or if you’re simply interested in China, this class should be a nice fit for you. How did China transition from an economic basket case in 1970 to the economic behemoth it is today? What are the evolving challenges of its economic maturity? And how about those currency issues? Learn how simple currency exchange rates work and then explore more complex issues of balance of payments accounting and ramifications for the US balance of trade and net foreign investment position. And what does the future hold? Will the dollar continue to be the main international reserve currency? What role might the Chinese yuan play? Brush up on your international trade chops and your knowledge of China in its evolving role in the 21st century.

REGISTRATION GUIDELINES: We try to identify the best fit for our open enrollment classes, usually by the kinds of resources and pedagogy included in the class. However, it is our STRONG belief that the content from any of these classes is valuable for the professional development of any teacher. And though we won’t have any lesson plans specifically designed for elementary teachers in our classes designated for secondary teachers, we are confident that these classes will enhance the understanding of ALL teachers and inspire some creative applications in their individual classrooms. Hence, we encourage teachers of all grade levels to attend any of our classes. Additionally, we will be holding 3 spots in every one-day open enrollment class for retired teachers and the general community for those wishing to expand their economic knowledge.
