2021 Baylor Global Business Forum: The Third Revolution
Dr. Elizabeth C. Economy, senior fellow for China studies, Council on Foreign Relations

It’s no secret that China is in the midst of dynamic change. Through an incisive look at President Xi Jinping’s political and economic reforms, Elizabeth Economy analyzes that transformation as it’s occurring today.

One of the nation’s foremost experts on Chinese domestic and foreign policy, Economy writes with authority in her latest book, “The Third Revolution,” about the widespread implications of China’s actions on the rest of the world. In an attempt to regain its past glory, Economy argues that China has embarked on a mission to reimagine global norms to better fit the vast nation’s “ambitious geostrategic objectives.”

Elizabeth Economy was called by Politico Magazine one of the “10 Names That Matter on China Policy” in 2018. She is a senior fellow for China studies at the Council on Foreign Relations and a senior fellow at Stanford University’s Hoover Institution. Her work is widely published and she is the author of several books on China. Economy holds a Ph.D. from the University of Michigan, an M.A. from Stanford University, and a B.A. from Swarthmore College.

Stephen Gardner is the Herman Brown professor of economics and director of the McBride Center for International Business at Baylor University who has been named “Outstanding Tenured Professor” and “Outstanding Professor for University Service.” He has authored three books. Gardner holds a B.A. in economics and Russian studies from the University of Texas at Austin and a Ph.D. in economics from the University of California, Berkeley.
