China and India as Global Powers 9/9

Carly Yuenger

On today's show we examine the popular prediction that the power of the United States will continue to decline and that, in the coming decades, we will see countries like China and India rise to the status of global superpowers.

Our guest, government and Asia scholar Minxin Pei, argues that just because the economies of China and India are booming does not mean that their influence and power will match or overtake that of the United States.

What makes a global superpower? Does power inevitably shift over time? Are we entering a time where multiple nations share or split up dominance on the global stage? What kind of relationship do you expect or hope to see form in the next few decades between the United States and rising nations? Share your thoughts below by adding a comment.
