Moderated by Chicago Council's Senior Fellow on Global Economy Phil Levy, the panelists discussed the historic growth of the Chinese economy and its subsequent stagnation as Western manufacturers in China are facing tougher environmental regulations, increased costs, and restrictions from the Chinese government.

During the panel, Haft and Livingston also shared their views on what it will take for foreign investment to reenergize the Chinese economy and what additional pitfalls could derail success for foreign companies working within China.
