If you can find 20 minutes to spare, Parag Khanna’s presentation at this year’s TED conference has some thought provoking moments. Among them:
2:45 – 6:00 – a discussion of the China-Mongolia-Russia space and how the de facto Chinese influence in the area echoes a prior point in history.
6:00 – 9:00 – the protrusion of commerce hubs in East Asia and their concurrent melding of national cultures.
9:00 – 12:00 – infrastructure investment as the key to peace in the Middle East.
