Chinese Investment in the U.S. by Congressional District

At the Committee's 2015 Members Program, the National Committee and Rhodium Group rolled out "New Neighbors," the first in-depth study to examine and quantify the effects of Chinese capital inflows to the United States at the local level, estimating investment, operations, and jobs provision in individual congressional districts, and assessing their relevance for American innovation, exports, and other economic linkages.

2015 S&ED: Perspectives of Brookings' China Experts

Join Brookings economist David Dollar and political scientists and National Committee board members Cheng Li and Kenneth Lieberthal for a discussion on the Strategic and Economic Dialogue to be held in Washington later this month: What issues are likely to be discussed? What “deliverables” might be expected? What will the Dialogue tell us about the bi-lateral meetings to be held by Presidents Barack Obama and Xi Jinping in September?
These China experts, and the program itself, will honor the life and work of Herbert Hansell (1925-2015), a stalwart supporter of the Committee as a member of the Board of Directors for more than 20 years and Treasurer for nine of those years. It is fitting that this event be part of the Committee's Jones Day China Lecture Series, given Herb's lifelong association with the firm.
