 15: Is China a Non-Market Economy? Why the WTO Gets to Decide | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: Unknown

PIIE Senior Fellow Chad P. Bown and Soumaya Keynes of The Economist focus on a huge WTO dispute in which China is suing the European Union and the United States over their refusal to treat it as a market economy, meaning they will not put lower duties on Chinese exports. They discuss how China's economy has evolved over time and how to define a "market economy." Special features include Keynes's interview with European Commissioner for Trade, Cecilia Malmstrom, and conversations about the issues with PIIE Senior Fellow Nicholas R.
