Book: The Post-American World, By Fareed Zakaria

Overview: “Rise of the rest” — the growth of China, India, Brazil and many other countries — and what it means for the future.

In the book, Zakaria argues that, thanks to the actions of the United States in spreading liberal democracy across the world, other countries are now competing with the US in terms of economic, industrial, and cultural power. While the US continues to dominate in terms of political-military power, other countries such as China and India are becoming global players in many fields.

As a reminder, you don’t have to read the book! The facilitator will share the main principles from the book with the group.

Jim Roberts with the NC Center of Innovation for Nanobiotechnology (formerly with the NC Dept of Commerce) will facilitate this stimulating discussion.
