China's Changing Fintech Landscape: Dr. Jing Wang

China Voices: The AmCham Shanghai Podcast

This episode I spoke with Dr. Jing Wang, an Assistant Professor of Interactive Media Business at NYU Shanghai, where her recent research has focused on the policy environment surrounding China's fintech platforms, and how these platforms impact corporate-government relations.  We discuss China's evolving fintech policies, and how the sector has become more heavily regulated in recent years. Jing also talks about the ways in which the state is treating the financial arms of tech giants like Alibaba and Tencent more like traditional banks, and what the wider implications of these policy shifts could be. Finally, we discuss the future of fintech policy, and how some of China's fintech innovations could be brought to the US.

Jing Wang, "Walking Around Obstacles: Nonconfrontational Activists In Gray China"

MIT Comparative Media Studies/Writing

Is there digital activism in China? What is it like to be an activist running a grassroots NGO in a land of censors? Is the state-public relationship in China antagonistic by default as our mainstream media would like us to believe? Are citizens of illiberal societies brainwashed or complicit, either imprisoned for speaking out or paralyzed by fear? This talk challenges some of the binary assumptions we make about activism and China by bringing our attention to the gray zones in China where nonconfrontational activists are building an invisible and quiet coalition to bring incremental progress to their society. Wang will talk about NGO2.0, a grassroots organization she founded in China, provide examples of nonconfrontational activism staged on Weibo and WeChat, and introduce Future Village, a design4good project that calls for multi-sectoral collaboration that NGO2.0 is building.Jing Wang is the founder and director of MIT New Media Action Lab and serves as the Chair of the International Advisory Board for Creative Commons China. She is also the founder and secretary-general of NGO2.0, a grassroots nonprofit organization based in Beijing and Shenzhen. Her current research interests include entertainment media in China and the US, advertising and marketing, civic media and communication, social media action research, and nonprofit technology.Video and transcript available at https://cms.mit.edu/video-jing-wang-nonconfrontational-activists-in-gray-china
