Invitees were able to participate in a discussion with the author on his new book, “Blaming China: It Might Feel Good but It Won’t Fix America’s Economy.” This reception was held September 17th, from 5:30-7:00 p.m. at NBR (1819 L Street NW, 9th Floor).


Benjamin Shobert is senior associate for international health at NBR. He is the director of Healthcare NExT Strategy and Business Development at Microsoft Artificial Intelligence and Research group and a lecturer in the Michael G. Foster School of Business at the University of Washington. He is also the founder and managing director of Seattle-based Rubicon Strategy Group, a consulting firm specializing in China’s healthcare, life science, and senior care industries.

In his book, “Blaming China: It Might Feel Good but It Won’t Fix America’s Economy,” Shobert draws on his years of industry experience and in-depth research to question current thinking about the U.S.-China relationship and propose alternatives based on realistic assessments of the challenges facing the U.S. economy. The event will feature lively discussion on innovation, trade, and the future of U.S.-China engagement.
