LECTURES IN GOVERNMENT AND ECONOMICS No. 12 



On June 6, 2024, the Society for the Analysis of Government and Economics (SAGE) hosted an online lecture entitled Incentives, Information and Governance: China's History in Economic Perspective. This lecture was presented by Zhangkai Huang, Associate Professor of Finance at Tsinghua University's School of Economics and Management and Managing Editor of the Journal of Government and Economics. The webinar represented the twelfth installment in SAGE's Lectures in Government and Economics Series.

This lecture is based on Dr. Zhangkai Huang's newly published monograph, "The Search for Good Governance: 3,000 Years of China and the World," which concentrates on studying the important features and historical course of events that have had a major impact on humanity and society in relation to the disciplines of economics and political science. The book, in particular, assesses and weighs the key contributions from quantitative research in these and other related areas of social sciences. By adopting the perspective of economics to survey the historical past, the lecture will seek to examine the various interrelations between incentives, information and governance in China over time.
