Out of Europe? The United States in an Asian Age

Professor Michael Cox, Professor Arne Westad, Professor Niall Ferguson
2 March 2011, 6:30pm, Old Theatre

Niall Ferguson argues that the world is now being shaped more by the emerging economies of the East than by the once dominant West. But within the West another kind of power shift is taking place, one that is increasingly leading to the growing irrelevance of Europe in a  world  order dominated by the Pacific Rim. Is any of this true? And does it really matter?
