“Do We Want China To Be More Like Us?” with Karl Gerth -- Osher UCSD

11/3/2014; 49 minutes

Is China's rush to adopt American lifestyles good for the global economy? Can its embrace of consumerism possibly be sustained? At what cost? UC San Diego Professor of History Karl Gerth explores these questions, drawing on his book, "As China Goes, So Goes the World: How Chinese Consumers are Transforming Everything." Gerth is presented by the Osher Lifelong Learning Institute at UC San Diego.
