Southern China Analyst

Baron conducts in-depth research into China and the U.S.-China relationship in support of clients in the U.S. Department of Defense and the Fortune 100.


More than 20 years after the normalization of trade relations, U.S. government and business leaders increasingly struggle to navigate China. This challenge reflects not only the daunting complexity of China, but also the limitations of mainstream analysis. Despite decades of effort, conventional China consultancies have proven unable to anticipate and specifically apply the trends that today confound American decision makers. Baron’s China advisory practice mitigates the deficiencies of standard approaches to offer U.S. government and private-sector clients unparalleled insights into China and the U.S.-China relationship.
