This page documents the “China and the Future of the World” conference I organized at the University of Chicago in 2006 with tremendous help from an organizing committee of eleven students and the conference’s vice-chair, Alexander Graham. Alex and I wrote summaries of each event of the conference and lightly edited the transcripts provided by a transcription service.
