>Politics: The Rise of the Rest

>On Sunday I read this BBC article about a possible realignment of the role of emerging economies in a world steeped in what seems to be deep financial doo-doo. It reminded me of an idea I had recently read about.

My mother recently hipped me to Fareed Zakaria, whose CNN show she feels “every thinker must watch.” He has written a book called The Post American World in which he outlines what is not “the decline of the American empire, but rather… the rise of everyone else.”

A .pdf of the book’s first chapter is available to read here in case you’re interested. Although I’m not as sold on Zakaria as my mother is, I like the basic idea.

Interesting times we are living in.
