Monday April 18th was the day back to school after the long easter holliday. Moreover, the graduate students and teaching staff of the School of Economics were invited to participate to a conference given by Evan Davis, the BBC's chief economic editor. Mr Davis has accepted to meet us, even though elections are very demanding for him. Graduate in politics from Oxford University and holder of a MSc in public administration from Harvard, Mr Evans told us his views about international trade with the emergence of China as a major player. He answered most of the questions that people are fearing to be worst off when China enters a market. He argued, with statistics to prove it, that China makes a minority of goods and services consumed in the UK and when China gets involved in a market, the population as whole if better off since it decreases prices. Telling so, he confirmed most of the economic tought about the issue. However, he invited economists to change their theoritical views about some issues such as consumption to adopt a more practical view. Definetely a good and motivating conference with the exams coming!
