Helen Wang Speaks at AmCham Shanghai on China’s Middle Class

I will be speaking at American Chamber of Commerce’s luncheon event in Shanghai on June 1 in Four Seasons Hotel. Below is the announcement on AmCham’s website:

AmCham Shanghai invites you to an Author Series event on Wednesday, June 1 at the Four Seasons Hotel from 11:30-13:30, as Forbes columnist and China expert Helen H. Wang discusses her bestselling book, The Chinese Dream: The Rise of the World’s Largest Middle Class.

In The Chinese Dream, Wang challenges us to recognize that fears about China’s rise are grossly misplaced. As a result of China’s new capitalist paradigm, a burgeoning middle class—calculated to reach 800 million within the next 15 years—is jumping aboard the consumerism train and riding it for all it is worth—a reality that may provide the answer to America’s economic woes. Through timely interviews, personal stories and a historical perspective, China-born Wang takes us into the world of the Chinese entrepreneurial middle class to show how a growing global mindset and the realization of unity in diversity may ultimately provide the way to creating a saner, safer world for all.

In a mere two decades China has developed the world’s largest middle class. Helen Wang tells that story – and her own – in this wonderfully informative and readable book.”
