China’s imminent emergence as the world’s dominant investor raises substantial concerns. For instance, the country diverges from global norms on matters of governance by the rule of law, enforcement of international environmental and human safety measures, and foreign-investment reciprocity. This articulate and insightful analysis by David Dollar of the Brookings Institute provides a framework for viewing the future evolution and challenges of China’s global investment strategies. getAbstract recommends Dollar’s report to policy makers, investors and others with an interest in what China’s creditor ascendance portends.
In this summary, you will learn
- How Chinese investment practices differ from the norms of other international investors,
- How Chinese investment strategies could change between 2016 and 2020, and
- What challenges Chinese creditor dominance pose to Sino-American relations.
