The Post-American World and the Rise of the Rest

Global Policy public lecture


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.

Fareed Zakaria is editor of Newsweek International, host of CNN’s Fareed Zakaria: GPS, and author of The Post-American World and the best-selling The Future of Freedom, which have both been translated into more than 20 languages.
