Reflections on Asia's Future with Guy de Jonquieres.
Jonquieres gives his personal views on how increasing economic dependence in Asia has led to improved diplomatic relations. He considers future challenges facing East Asia, including whether economic development will reach a stage where further progress makes necessary a deeper level of integration. He also discusses China and gives his views on the debate about how the current communist regime might fare under the ever-increasing pressure brought by the forces of market capitalism.
