Monash Conference Centre
Level 7, 30 Collins Street

Monash Business School’s Centre for Development Economics and Sustainability, together with the Australian Centre for Financial Studies, are pleased to invite you to an evening with Dr Paola Subacchi, Senior Research Fellow, Global Economy and Finance at Chatham House, to discuss her recently-published book, The People’s Money: How China Is Building a Global Currency.

Event details

In The People’s Money  Dr Subacchi introduces readers to China’s monetary system, mapping its evolution over the past century. Subacchi revisits the policies that fostered the country’s economic rise while at the same time purposefully creating a currency of little use beyond China’s borders. She shows the key to understanding China’s economic predicament lies in past and future strategies for the renminbi. Increasing the currency’s reach will play a major role in securing China’s future.
