Professor of Sociology
I have two ongoing projects. One is to study how the dollar's key currency status and the U.S. role as the major liquidity supplier in the postwar period have affected U.S. domestic political economy and how such impacts have led to the skyrocketing federal debt, a fiat economy and high unemployment rate. The other is to study how the changing international environments have changed the Chinese perception of geography and pushed it to a new development strategy of Eurasian continental economic integration.
