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?
