Our Fearless Predictions for 2019

Flying taxis in Japan. An Asian or Asians implicated in Special Counsel Robert Mueller's investigation. A combustible situation on the Korean Peninsula — despite President Donald Trump's assurances otherwise. These are among the bold predictions for next year offered by members of the Asia Society family. Take a look at what else we think is going to happen in 2019, and see how we did last year.


Kevin Rudd on U.S.-China Relations: What Happens Next?

Following the recent G20 summit in Buenos Aires, President Trump agreed to delay planned tariffs on $200 billion worth of Chinese exports, thus staving off a major salvo in the burgeoning U.S.-China trade war. In a speech delivered last week at Asia Society, Kevin Rudd argues that Beijing and Washington aren't out of the woods yet. The U.S. approach to China, Rudd says, is shifting from "strategic engagement" to "strategic competition."


Ruchir Sharma: We Are Now in an Era of Deglobalization

In the decades following the Second World War, the world's economies embraced free trade, cross-border investment, and economic integration to an extraordinary extent, ushering in an era of globalization that, until recently, had seemed permanent. But Ruchir Sharma, an economic analyst at Morgan Stanley, argues that this era has now ended — and that our new phase of "deglobalization" will have unpredictable consequences for the world. 



Asia Society relies on the generosity of its friends and members to support its mission of strengthening relationships and promoting understanding among the people, leaders, and institutions of Asia and the United States.
