The Future Is Asian : Global Order in the Twenty-first Century, Hardback Book

The Future Is Asian : Global Order in the Twenty-first Century Hardback

Description

'An authoritative book which may well become a standard reference . . . compelling' James Kynge, Financial TimesLeading global strategist Parag Khanna explains how Asia is reshaping the entire planet and setting a new template for our collective futureFive billion people, two-thirds of the world's mega-cities, one-third of the global economy, two-thirds of global economic growth, thirty of the Fortune 100, six of the ten largest banks, eight of the ten largest armies, five nuclear powers, massive technological innovation, the newest crop of top-ranked universities.

Asia is also the world's most ethnically, linguistically and culturally diverse region of the planet, eluding any remotely meaningful generalization beyond the geographic label itself.

Even for Asians, Asia is dizzying to navigate. Whether you gauge by demography, geography, economy or any other metric, Asia is already the present - and it is certainly the future.

It is for this reason that we cannot afford to continue to get Asia so wrong.

The Future Is Asian accurately shows Asia from the inside-out, telling the story of how this mega-region is coming together and reshaping the entire planet in the process.
