Economic Trends in Asia: Outlook for 2008 with Nicholas Hope.
All signs point to the Chinese market. For example, Beijing is now Japan's and South Korea's major trading partner replacing the U.S. Is this China boom sustainable? Will recent concerns about product safety, undervalued currency, environmental degradation, and internal unrest slow, stop, or even derail this giant economic engine? How will other Asian states like Indonesia find their place in the Asian sun? What are likely global reactions to the enrichment of Asia?- USF Center for the Pacific Rim
