The State of the World
NEW YORK – We all recognize today’s perils. A global financial crisis. A global energy crisis. A global food crisis. Trade talks have collapsed, yet again.
There are new outbreaks of war and violence. Climate change ever more clearly threatens our planet. We say that global problems demand global solutions.
And yet, do we act? In truth, today, we also face a crisis of a different sort – the challenge of global leadership. New centers of power and leadership are emerging – in Asia, Latin America and across the newly developed world.
