Episode Synopsis: Parag Khanna, senior research fellow at the Lee Kuan Yew School of Public Policy, joined us to discuss & launch his latest book “Connectography: Mapping the Future of Global Civilisation” from Asia first. Our conversation began with his new maxim “Connectivity is destiny” over the age old wisdom of “Geography is destiny”. We discussed how the new maps and the drivers of connectivity of the world from the digital economies to infrastructure alliances are changing how we perceive international relations and global logistics supply chain from Asia to US and how new trade routes are building from India to China beyond physical borders. Last but not least, Parag offered what the end state of our world will be after everything is connected.
