This segment of GLOBAL IMPACT addresses China's rise as a new superpower and the decline of American hegemony. According to conservative estimates, by 2027 China will overtake the United States as the world's largest economy, and by 2050 its economy will be twice as large as that of the United States. Many international economists and national security experts see China's rise as a harbinger to the end of the western world's dominant influence in global affairs. China will seek to shape the world in its own image. In coming decades, the West will be confronted with the fact that its systems, institutions and values are no longer the only ones on offer. Our distinguished guest will be Dr. Martin Jacques, author of "WHEN CHINA RULES THE WORLD - THE END OF THE WESTERN WORLD AND THE BIRTH OF A NEW GLOBAL ORDER". Dr. Martin Jacques is a visiting senior fellow at the LSE Ideas, a Centre for the Study of International Affairs, Diplomacy and Grand Strategy, and a visiting research fellow at the London School of Economics Asia Research Centre. He has recently been a visiting professor at Renmin University, Beijing, The International Centre for Chinese Studies, Aichi University, and Ritsumeikan University, Kyoto, and a senior research fellow at The Asia Research Institute, National University of Singapore. We will be discussing his groundbreaking book and his critical perspectives on China's rise as an economic superpower.
