Will it accelerate the Shift in Power from the West to the East?
Our century is witnessing a tectonic shift in global power and influence from the West to the East. In his book, “The New Asian Hemisphere: The Irresistible Shift of Global Power to the East,” Kishore Mahbubani, a former Dean and Professor in Practice of Public Policy at the Lee Kuan Yew School of Public Policy, Singapore, explains why Asia is rising, how it will alter the world, and why the West—even though it should celebrate Asia’s rise—will have great difficulties adjusting to these changes. He argues further that the rise of Asia will be good for the world as hundreds of millions of people will be rescued from the clutches of poverty. We have already seen a clear manifestation of his contention. China alone has been able to lift 800 million people out of poverty in the last three decades and is currently the second biggest economy of the world. The rise of China and India along with the continuing weight of Japan surely marks one of the greatest shifts in power from the West to the East.
