Giants in the Earth: Michael Lind on China, India, the US and the future of world politics

Influential American author Michael Lind examines how the United States will respond to the rise of China and India.

The rise of China and India is transforming the global economy. By 2050, China is likely to have the largest economy in the world, followed by the US and India. How will the United States respond to the economic and strategic challenges posed by the rise of these two Asian superpowers? The American century shows no sign of ending, argues Lind. But he warns that, as the United States responds to the strategic demands of multipolar diplomacy, its economic strength could be undermined by excessive military mobilization – and the US could go the way of the Soviet Union.

Michael Lind is a widely respected writer and thinker on American politics and foreign policy. Currently the Whitehead Senior Fellow at the New America Foundation, he is the author of The Radical Center: The Future of American Politics with Ted Halstead (Doubleday, 2001), and Made in Texas: George W. Bush and the Southern Takeover of American Politics (New America Books/Basic, 2003). Michael has been an editor or staff writer for The New Yorker, Harper’s Magazine, and The New Republic. From 1991 to 1994 he was executive editor of The National Interest. He has also been a guest lecturer at Harvard Law School. He has written for The Atlantic Monthly, Prospect, The New York Times Magazine, The Washington Post, the Los Angeles Times, the Financial Times, and other leading publications.
