One of the greatest waves of migration in human history was of hundreds of millions moving from farms to factories in China over the past three decades. Today, many of these workers are living in cities, but often facing layoffs as mounting economic problems in capitalist countries dry up exports. Our speaker, Luo Xiaoping of the Academy of Marxism in Beijing, has long studied migrant workers. She is a good friend of the Center, having spent last year in Boston, and spoke at the Center most recently in August 2015.
