Around the World in Asian Days: Implications for the West
September 22, 2008

As the economies of China and India become larger players on the global stage, what are the policy implications for the West? Both countries continue to increase military spending and both countries have active space exploration programs as well as nuclear weapons. How will this alter the geopolitical balance? As workforces and companies in both countries become more competent and more specialized, what are are the implications of certain skills disappearing from the West altogether. Could the West become hostage to China and India? Flows of capital and currency are changing. As China holds more and more Western bonds and as companies from India and China start to acquire assets in the West, is it even relevant to measure these countries by the growth of Foreign Direct Investment from the West? How will the rise of companies and entrepreneurs from China and India alter the way that we look at the world?
