Interviewed by National Committee President Steve Orlins, Damien Ma and William Adams discuss their new book, In Line Behind a Billion People: How Scarcity Will Define China’s Ascent in the Next Decade.  China will soon have the world’s largest economy, but Ma and Adams argue that China’s economic growth will constrain it, not empower it, as they believe that China will continue to be shaped by scarcity as has been the case for much of its history.
