The ascension of China and India will be the outstanding development of the 21st century, raising fundamental questions about both the structure of the world economy and the balance of global geopolitical power. How aggressive a superpower will China be? And what about India, whose vast population and economic prospects appear to guarantee prosperity? Economist David Smith analyzes in depth the rapid eastward shift in global power to Beijing and Delhi ? and its enormous ramifications for the west.

Book News
The economic rise of China, primarily in manufacturing, and India, primarily in the service sector, poses a number of key questions for the future, which Smith (economics editor of the Sunday Times, UK) proposes to answer in this book. He first provides overall economic histories of the two countries and considers their particular impacts on the global economy. He then assesses their comparative strengths and weaknesses. In the final chapter he argues that: China and India are the biggest thing to hit the world economy, but they are not as big as they seem; they will stretch the world's resources, but won't destroy the planet; they will flex their diplomatic and military muscles, but won't start a new Cold War; they will provide huge market opportunities, but will remain relatively poor; and they will hit turbulence and trigger protectionism, but won't change the rules of globalization.
