Talk 1:
China's impact, or: How China changes our lives?


Mr. Henrique Schneider
PhD in Economics

The emergence of China as a global player and major economic force changed and will continue to change many aspects of how we do business - that is a very well known fact. But China also changes other, less perceived, things in the way we live: China's economic emergence also changes our lives.

Our consumption pattern changed we have new products to buy, we have cheaper products to buy and thus having more power of purchase, we start to compare qualities. More and more consumers are getting preoccupied with the provenience and transportation of the goods, more and more started to think about how what they buy affects the country they live in. Even more, since China became a major player we also had slight shifts in our everyday's culture from music to Hollywood movies!

He explored some of these lesser perceived changes we have experienced and are experiencing and how they are correlated with China's rise.
