The Giants of Asia


The Giants of Asia

With their huge populations and growth rates, China and India are two of the economic and technological powerhouses of the twenty-first century. And though many seem to forget it after the Lost Decade, Japan is the third largest economy in the world, the second largest developed economy and the world’s largest creditor nation. Nevertheless, all three countries have giant problems, too. Will the giants of Asia stumble in the face of the US rebound? Speakers in this illuminating Battle of Ideas debate include Professor Barry Buzan, emeritus professor, LSE; James Woudhuysen, professor of forecasting and innovation, De Montfort University and Dr Linda Yeuh, fellow in economics, University of Oxford and economics editor at Bloomberg TV.
