21st Century Colonialisation: The Asian-isation of the west.

1,312 views

Published on

The keynote lecture I gave at the prestigious World Trends Forum in Miami, USA in October, 2102.

I was asked to comment on possibly the biggest trend in the world right now, which is the re- emergence of Asia and its impact on the globe.

My thesis was that the 21st Century will in effect be the Colonialisation of the Western world by Asian values.
