Senior Research Scholar Alain Bertaud shares insights on urbanization in China
— January 26, 2018
Excerpt from South China Morning Post -- "'Urbanisation didn’t happen (in China) because the government wanted the country to urbanise,' noted Alain Bertaud, urban planner and senior research scholar at the US’s NYU Stern Urbanisation Project. 'The economy asked for it, and the people voted with their feet. The government have had to cope with urbanisation rather than it being a deliberate policy decision. In a way, they are paying the price of this rapid urbanisation now.'"
