Boao Review 2016-04-19Israel and China have a promising future of mutual cooperation. The most important thing to do this is not government to government interaction, but people to people. That is what we are trying to do.
Luciano Floridi 2016-03-10We need more and better techniques and technologies to see the small data patterns in Big Data, but we need even more and better thinking in order to sift the valuable ones.
John Zhao 2016-03-10The evolution of China’s role in the global community; China’s reform, transformation and development; the impacts of technological revolutions, particularly of the mobile Internet on human way of life, will be significant trends that will influence the operations of global companies and on prospects for investing in China over the coming decade.

Ernst Ulrich von Weizsäcker 2016-03-10For China, reducing air pollution and greenhouse gas emissions go together if the reduction of coal burning is conceived. Increasing energy efficiency in many sectors is the most profitable way of reducing pollution and greenhouse gas emissions.
Amory B. Lovins, Jon Creyts, and Clay Stranger 2016-03-09Reinventing Fire’s economic and social innovations can massively scale and refine today’s best technologies and practices to retool China’s economy for 21st-century leadership, assembling the building blocks that exist today.
Christopher D. Manning 2016-03-09In the next decade our AI systems will be able to benefit from a virtuous cycle: We need knowledge to understand language well, but it is also the case that the knowledge that we need is contained in language, spread across the books and webpages of the world.
Peter Salovey 2016-03-09I see three pressing and widely shared challenges facing all of global higher education in the decades ahead: inclusion, innovation, and essential values.
Huang Yiping 2016-03-09The development of inclusive finance is one of the main tasks of Chinese financial reforms. The innovations of Internet companies have the potential to alter the development of inclusive finance, while the vast potential of China’s inclusive finance market provides enormous room for Internet finance innovation.
Jimmy Chang 2016-03-09We suspect that, over time, academics may start to float trial balloons for what is heretofore considered heresy – central bank’s forgiveness of the debt held on its balance sheet.

Fan Xiwen 2016-03-09Perhaps the most important aspect of the market implications for an increasingly correlated financial market is the need for better policy coordination between China and the U.S. The turmoil in the stock markets and volatility in the currency markets this year highlight the importance of such coordination.

Yu Yongding 2016-03-09China’s debt-deflation spiral differs from Fisher’s formulation of debt deflation, as the difficulties facing Chinese companies are not solely due to falling product prices leading to an increase in real debt, but also because the fall in goods prices has also led to a drop-off in profits.
Edmund S. Phelps 2016-03-09The global economy offers China a vast market for innovative products. Moreover, there is little innovation coming any longer from Europe and much less innovation coming from America than there once was. China could take its place as the major source of the innovation in the world. But to become this, China needs a new economy and it has been taking steps to develop one.
Joseph Pelzman 2016-03-09The most striking new trade rule corrections contained in the TPP involve reducing barriers to digital trade, regulating transactions of state-owned enterprises, and ensuring regulatory coherence.
