Overview

As Asian leaders start to experience a shift from managing growth to providing conditions for growth, demographics are no longer in their favour. The speaker will discuss his assessment of Asia's entry into an era of scarcities and its attempt to balance further growth with its economic and social problems. The speaker will outline his thoughts on the emergence of a new Asian economic model - a paradigm of economic thinking that he believes will replace the model launched in the West 200 years ago.
