Frank Lavin

China's rise to international prominence is one of the most consequential economic developments of the modern era, with profound implications for politics and international relations.  But where is China going and what does it seek from the international system?  Similarly, how should the U.S. respond to China's rise and what implications does that have for the U.S. and Europe?  Frank Lavin will discuss these topics and offer thoughts as to scenarios and responses we are likely to see in the near term. 

From the National Security Council, to the State Department, to the Commerce Department, as well as in banking and in business, Frank Lavin (Wharton MBA 96) has spent most of his professional life living and working in China and on China issues.  He served in the Reagan Administration as well as the Bush (41) and Bush (43) Administrations and went on to work on China business at Citibank, Bank of America, and in China e-commerce.  Frank has written and talked widely on this topic, including the New York Times, Foreign Affairs, and his monthly column in Forbes.  Besides his Wharton degree, Frank also holds degrees from Georgetown (B.S. Foreign Service, M.A. Chinese Language and History) and SAIS (M.S. International Politics and International Economics).
