Booklist | This Brave New World by Anja Manuel

If you want a glimpse into the future of the world economy, look no further than the corridors of power and boardrooms of China and India. They are the worlds’ most populous countries; and in a decade or so, they will be the world’s largest and third largest economies, have more than 1 billion internet users, be consuming the most energy and resources, and creating the most pollution. Like it or not, they will have veto power over many international decisions.
