Parag Khanna - The Future Is Asian — at Politics and Prose at Union Market

Upcoming Event
Tuesday, February 26, 2019 - 7:00pm to 8:00pm

Khanna’s important book draws on geopolitics, technology, business, and globalization to trace how Asia—led by China but extending to Saudi Arabia, Japan, the Philippines, and Indonesia—is quickly becoming the world’s dominant cultural and economic power. A Young Global Leader of the World Economic Forum and managing partner of FutureMap, Khanna notes that these Asian trading networks already represent some 40% of global GDP; this share is sure to rise as the 21st century becomes the Asian Century. To prepare, the West needs to drop its outdated mindset and focus on the younger leaders who are abandoning old territorial disputes and investing in the infrastructure of future digital innovation.
