نبذة عن المقرر

The Chinese Communist Party is the biggest, best-organised and most powerful political force in the world. Understanding what motivates Xi Jinping and other top Chinese leaders, how they wield their power and how they think, is vital for anyone trying to figure out China and its global ambitions.

You will learn how the Communist Party sprang up in China a century ago. How it progressed from Mao Zedong, to Deng Xiaoping and to Xi Jinping today and how it is structured and operates and what internal and external challenges it faces. China’s political process is often described as a black box. After this course you will be much better equipped to decipher the contents of that box.

Unbiased analysis, real-life examples and practical guidance will equip you with the analytical frameworks and tools to apply to your investment and business decisions, risk assessments or policymaking. You will learn directly from Enodo Economics’ team of experts, who together have over 250 years of experience focused on China’s economy, its politics and markets and its culture.

We make use of specially shot online teaching videos that are produced to a high professional standard. The material, carefully tailored to complement the content of each course, includes interviews with relevant figures whose personal stories bring to life the concepts being taught. Imaginative visual aids and animation are designed to enhance the learning experience – and make it fun.

Diana Choyleva is a leading expert on China’s economy and politics. She is Chief Economist at Enodo Economics, an independent macroeconomic forecasting consultancy she set up in 2016 to untangle complexity, challenge the consensus, and give pointers to the future by making sense of today. Enodo’s focus is China, one of the most misunderstood economies in the world, yet one of the most important to figure out.

For 16 years prior she worked at Lombard Street Research (now TS Lombard), most recently as their Chief Economist and Head of Research, setting the agenda for the firm’s team of economists and strategists while conducting her own global analysis.

She has co-authored two books. In 2011 she published "The American Phoenix – and why China and Europe will struggle after the coming slump" , which predicted a wrenching slowdown in China and a troubled decade for Europe but greater resilience for America’s economy. In 2006 she co-authored "The Bill from the China Shop" , explaining how Asia’s savings glut was driving US households ever deeper into debt and why the process was unsustainable and must end in tears.

Diana writes regular opinion pieces for the Financial Times , the Wall Street Journal , Nikkei Asian Review , Barron’s , and more. She has extensive global experience engaging with all manner of audiences and has made frequent television appearances, including on BBC’s Newsnight on the day that Lehman Brothers collapsed.
