Faculty on Topic: Hewitt on why China matters to you
**UPDATE: Professor Deborah Hewitt will be appearing live on Fox Business News, July 2, Tuesday at 3 p.m.
In an increasingly connected global economy, size matters. That’s why every American businessperson and consumer needs to understand what’s happening in China. Recently, Deborah Hewitt, assistant dean for MBA programs and clinical professor of economics and finance at the Mason School of Business, spoke to William & Mary News about the rising tide of China’s financial resources and how that will have an impact on everyone—from the corner dry cleaners to global giants.
In the videos, Hewitt talks about what every American business needs to know about the Chinese economy, how China’s $3 trillion reserve holdings will help it weather economic challenges and how the yuan is being positioned to compete with the U.S. dollar as the global currency.
