Dr. Parag Khanna: The Future is Asian
Multimedia | March 14, 2019

Dr. Parag Khanna joins Cameron Munter to discuss the issue of a rising Asia and his latest publication, The Future is Asian: Commerce, Conflict & Culture in the 21st Century.

Contrary to popular belief, Dr. Khanna observes that “The most significant megatrend of the 21st century is not the rise of China; it’s the Asianization of Asia.” He further notes: “The trade war basically just accelerates Asia’s own self-sufficiency and even to some degree its decoupling in many areas of trade from us, and that’s obviously bad news for our (U.S.) exporters.” The podcast covers the roots of Asia's rise along with the implications and lessons for the Western world. 

Dr. Khanna is the Founder and Managing Partner of FutureMap, a data and scenario based advisory firm. He has served as an adviser to the U.S. National Intelligence Council’s Global Trends 2030 program, as a Senior Research Fellow at the New America Foundation and in 2007 served in Iraq and Afghanistan as a senior geopolitical adviser to United States Special Operations Forces.
