Economic Speaker Series Welcomes Guest Speaker


Ryan Yonk will speak at 7 p.m. Nov. 7 in Baldwin Hall 114 on his new book, “The China Dilemma: Rethinking U.S.-China Relations,” co-authored with Ethan Yang.

Yonk is a political scientist by training and has had positions at North Dakota State University, Utah State University and Southern Utah University, and was one of the founders of strata policy. He has also spent time teaching in China and brings a level of intimate first-hand experience to his analysis. The U.S. relationship with China has been an increasingly popular topic of heated debate among politicians and policy makers. Yonk’s new book with Yang explores Beijing’s motivations in detail and reflects on how this better understanding can improve U.S. interaction with China.

On the day of his visit, Yonk will stop by the Economic Analysis of Social and Policy Issues course (ECON 345) at 4:30 p.m. to discuss Elinor Ostrom’s work for which she won the Nobel prize in economics. This event is open to the public and all are invited to come.
