US-China Trade Relations in the Age of Disruption and Coronavirus Lecture at Concordia College March 11 PDF Print Email


By Rebecca Portnoy, Associate Director Of Communications, Concordia College

Mar. 4, 2020: On Wednesday, March 11, at 7:00 pm, Concordia College’s Jacobson Global Lecture Series will feature Scott B. MacDonald, chief economist at Smith’s Research & Gradings, to present US-China Trade Relations in the Age of Disruption and Coronavirus.

MacDonald’s timely lecture will address recent stress in the U.S.-China relationship over trade, foreign investment, technology, and cyber-security, and also the decoupling of China and the U.S. and the impact that coronavirus may have on this relationship. 

With U.S. companies heavily invested in China, a massive supply chain linking our countries, tensions over cyber-hacking, and now the potential for a pandemic, MacDonald posits that the management of the Beijing-Washington relationship may be the biggest challenge facing us in the 21st century.  

Scott B. MacDonald is the chief economist at Smith’s Research & Gradings and Senior Associate at the Center for Strategic and International Studies.

Prior to that, he was the head of research at MC Asset Management LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of Mitsubishi Corporation, head of credit and economic research at Aladdin Capital Management in Stamford, Connecticut; and an international economic adviser in the Office of the Comptroller of the Currency in Washington, D.C. 

McDonald is the author or editor of 18 books and numerous articles on economic affairs, covering events in the Caribbean, Latin America, Europe, Asia, and North America. He holds a Ph.D. in political science from the University of Connecticut, an M.A. in Asian studies from the University of London’s School of Oriental and African Studies, and a B.A. in history and political science from Trinity College in Hartford, Connecticut.

For three decades, Concordia’s Jacobson Global Lecture Series has brought to distinguished campus speakers from diverse international fields, enlightening students, faculty, and the community at large.

This event is free and open to the public. Please register at

Bronxville Public Library

Bronxville Public Library

The Bronxville Public Library traces its origins back to 1875, when it was a small lending library housed in a room attached to the “Bronxville Model School.” The Library was officially chartered in 1906 and moved into the Village Hall Building. The needs of the library grew with the town and, in 1942, a new standalone building was erected, which is where the Library is today. Over the years, the Library was renovated and expanded to meet the needs of the community.

The Library has wonderful resources for adults and children and offers a comfortable and relaxing environment. The Library also houses a fine art collection, consisting principally of Bronxville painters and sculptors.

The Library offers special events, art exhibitions, and programs for adults, young adults and children.  All events are open to the public, unless otherwise indicated.
