Watch Martin Jacques in conversation with Shashi Tharoor, exploring what will define the progress of China and India over the coming years.
By 2030, China and India’s economies are forecast to collectively be twice as large as that of the United States. The discussion explored which of the two powers will emerge as the larger economy in the next decade. From their types of government to their economic policies, however, each country is distinctly different. In a pluralist, multipolar world, is a “China versus India” debate still relevant? If so, who will emerge economically stronger and why? Is it policy, politics, resources, or demographics that provide an advantage to one over the other?
Martin Jacques appears on CCTV to argue that China’s impact on the world reaches far beyond the economic realm and can be better understood through the history of civilization.
