Live: Understanding inequalities in globalization

CGTN published this video item, entitled “Live: Understanding inequalities in globalization” – below is their description.

Economic globalization accelerates the flow of resources on a global scale and speeds up growth in developing countries. However, it also widens the gap between the rich and the poor in each country. And COVID-19 has not only highlighted the social problems within countries, but also exacerbated inequalities.

How does COVID-19 impact socioeconomic development? What measures can be taken to deal with inequality in the development of globalization? What can the world learn from China’s poverty alleviation drive?

Join CGTN for a conversation with Nobel laureate Angus Deaton and Prof. Anne Case from Princeton University as well as Vice President David Blair and President Wang Huiyao of the Center for China and Globalization to understand inequalities in a globalizing world.
