    What is China’s social credit system? And what is it not? Two speakers, Jeremy Daum and Adam Knight will lay out the reality and dispel some myths about a system, that is often labelled ‘Orwellian’ or compared to inventions portrayed in the dystopian TV series Black Mirror.  Please join us for an authoritative talk based on close reading of China’s social credit policy documents and on the ground research.
