International Security Studies will host a discussion with influential economist and China analyst Stephen Roach on his new book, Accidental Conflict: America, China, and the Clash of False Narratives. Currently a senior fellow at the Paul Tsai China Center at Yale Law School, Roach was chief economist at Morgan Stanley and taught courses on Asia at the Jackson Institute for 12 years. In Accidental Conflict, he presents hard-hitting analysis of America and China’s economies, politics, and policies, positing that the false narratives on both sides, amplified by information distortion and social networks, are more a reflection of each nation’s exaggerated fears of the other than an honest self-assessment of problems of their own making.
This event is free and open to the Yale community. Please register in advance here. Copies of the book will be available for purchase.
This event is co-sponsored by the Paul Tsai China Center at Yale Law School.
