Marking the publication of his new book, The Writing on the Wall: China and the West in the 21st century, Will Hutton, chief executive of The Work Foundation, will discuss his latest work in depth in a public lecture at LSE on Wednesday 14 February.
The Writing on the Wall explores the probability of China attaining the baton of global leadership as the new superpower of the 21st century. Will Hutton considers China's growth rate, its societal transition, the viability of the current communist system, and environmental degradation issues. This lecture will maintain that western leaders must act now for the future stability of the world. The planet has never been more interdependent and for China and the West the message is clear: the writing is on the wall.
Will Hutton is a governor of LSE as well as chief executive of The Work Foundation and a columnist for the Observer. He has previously published six books, including The State We're In and The World We're In.
Professor David Held, LSE, will chair this event.
The Writing on the Wall is on Wednesday 14 February 2007 at 6.30pm in the Hong Kong Theatre, Clement House, LSE, Aldwych, London WC2A. This event is free and open to all with no ticket required.
