How to develop the future of Asia — without challenging the environment

How do we get to the point where 2.5 billion people in Asia enjoy the infrastructure and institutions of developed nations — and do so without challenging the environment?

Dr. Parag Khanna, global strategy advisor, founder of FutureMap, and author of “The Future is Asian”, joins TFI to discuss what must be done to ensure that the future is sustainable.

He talks about accelerating hydrocarbon markets, subsidizing large-scale solar projects, and transferring technology out of China, India, and Japan and into ASEAN countries — and, most importantly, explains why Asia doesn’t need to wait for Western powers in order to do any of these things.
