Asia’s Rivals: The implications for the world economy of developments in China, India and Japan

Bill Emmot

For the first time in history, Asia has three great powers simultaneously, all of which are treating the continent as a single economic, strategic and diplomatic space. Such integration raises the prospect that Asian growth could help support the world economy. But tension between the three, protectionism in Europe and America, and the challenge in Asia of coping with inflation, social unrest and environmental damage, make such a soothing outcome look increasingly unlikely.
