Description

This lecture shows how simple economic analysis can be applied to solve important social problems. The two examples are China's healthcare provision and China's environmental protection. Even if the presented proposals to solve the two problems are effective, if adopted, to get them adopted is not easy and depends on political factors.

The public lecture was part of the “Vincent Woo Distinguished Visiting Scholar Programme” established in 1999 with the generous endowment given by Dr Vincent Woo Wing-fai. The Programme provides funding for the University to invite an internationally renowned scholar to stay on campus for a week each year to give a public lecture, hold seminars with staff and students, and give advice to various academic departments.

是次講座為於1999年由胡永輝博士慷慨捐贈成立的「胡永輝傑出訪問學人計劃」其中一項活動。透過此計劃的資助,大學每年邀請一位國際知名的學者出任訪問學人,駐校一周,期間主持一場公開講座、為學生及教職員舉辦研討會,並為學術部門提供意見。
