Speaker: Fareed Zakaria Chair: Professor David Held This event was recorded on 30 June 2009 in Old Theatre, Old Building In this lecture, Fareed Zakaria will expound on the The Post-American World; a world in which the United States no longer dominates the global economy, orchestrates geopolitics or overwhelms cultures. He will explain how the 'rise of the rest' -- the growth of countries like China, India, Brazil, Russia, and many others -- is the great story of our time. He will also explain how economic growth in any given country produces political confidence, national pride, and international problems. What does it mean to live in a truly global era? Zakaria will answer this question with his customary lucidity, insight, and imagination.
