    Chandran Nair, "New era of Asian diplomacy"

    China Daily - 15 May 2018

    In a way, Chandran’s op-ed complements and reinforces Kishore’s argument. He elaborates on the reasons why we are witnessing the dawn of a new era of Asian diplomacy – a process in which the US plays almost no role. In his opinion, “Washington may need to accept that its involvement in every problem around the world is unnecessary. History shows that it is even counterproductive at times” (reads in 5-6 min).

    Kishore Mahbubani and Lawrence Summers, "America’s Collision Course With China"

    Project Syndicate - 15 May 2018

    This is an unusually bleak op-ed from a perennial optimist. Kishore worries that the world’s most important bilateral relationship is on a dangerous, slippery slope. In his words, it has become “a source of considerable uncertainty and, potentially, severe instability. Nowhere is this more apparent than in the brewing bilateral trade war”. He attributes squarely the responsibility to the US, worrying that its political polarization and simplistic ideology are driving it into a highly damaging and utterly pointless conflict (reads in 5-6 min).

    The Atlantic - 15 May 2018

    The historian / practicing statesman’s take on AI – very informed and a great read, whether one agrees or not. Kissinger argues that philosophically, intellectually—in every way—human society is unprepared for the rise of artificial intelligence. He fears that the world could end up relying on machines powered by data and algorithms and ungoverned by ethical or philosophical norms (reads in 8-12 min).
