Barbarians at the Gate: Corporate Takeovers & the Rise of Shadow Banking


Veteran journalist WANG Shuo and managing editor of Caixin chronicles a hostile corporate takeover war of Vanke, the largest property developer in China, that sent waves of deep shock to the entire capital market and opened eyes for those who had thought they already understood everything about the dynamics of China’s financial industry. Behind the emergent corporate raiders is a seismic shift of China’s financial sector, a giant shadow banking system has arisen. No one is prepared.

GPS Professor Barry Naughton will moderate a discussion followed by a reception.

The event will take place in GPS classroom 3201 (directions). Closest parking will be at the Pangea Parking Structure. There will be signage to direct you from Pangea to GPS.
