A clued-in diplomat cum academic defines the end of conflicts and foretold future full of peace. Norman Angel prophesied this a century ago and four years later the worst conflict to date erupted. Kishore Mahbubani, a century later, promises a similar pacific future…so what’s changed and why is he right, now?
In a world full of pessimism, Kishore Mahbubani argues in The Great Convergence that the world has never been in better shape on many fronts. Poverty is diminishing globally. Middle classes are exploding. Wars are declining.
In The Great Convergence, Mahbubani explains why these positive trends are emerging and what the world can do to sustain them. Mahbubani will be happy to engage the members and friends of the SIIA in a private discussion on The Great Convergence.
