VENUE: Foreign Correspondents' Club, Central Hong Kong COST: HK$200 for members; HK$250 for non-members REGISTER: Registration closes March 22nd. The Yale Club and The University of Pennsylvania Club are co-sponsoring a talk by Yale School Of Management Professor Peter Schott. Dr. Schott will speak on the surprisingly swift decline of US manufacturing and China's Exports. Peter Schott is Professor of Economics at the Yale School of Management, Research Associate at the National Bureau of Economic Research and a special-sworn-status researcher at the U.S. Census Bureau. His research focuses on how countries, firms and workers are affected by globalization. Recent papers examine quality upgrading by developing countries such as China, the extent to which U.S. exporters abandoned Asian export markets following the 1997 financial crisis, and transfer-pricing by U.S. multinationals. Summaries of his research have appeared in various academic and other outlets, including The New Yorker, The Economist, and The Wall Street Journal. Reflecting the quality of his teaching, he was awarded the Yale School of Management Teaching Award for 2010. Before joining Yale's faculty, he worked as a commercial banker for Sumitomo Trust and Banking Co., Ltd., and received a Master's Degree in political science and a PhD in management from UCLA. He received a B.S. in Finance from The Wharton School, University of Pennsylvania.
