On February 6, the Managing Global Order project hosted an event with Ruchir Sharma of Morgan Stanley Global Investments and John Ikenberry of Princeton University on the rise of the new emerging powers and what it means for the evolving global order.
Sharma questioned the conventional wisdom on the inevitable rise of the major emerging market countries and addressed the likelihood of their ever achieving parity with the developed market powers. Ikenberry analyzed the relationship of the rising powers to the current Western-dominated order and how they can be responsibly integrated into it. A discussion followed moderated by Managing Global Order Fellow Thomas Wright.
Ruchir Sharma is the head of emerging markets and global macro for Morgan Stanley Investment Management. He has recently published his first book, Breakout Nations: In Pursuit of the Next Economic Miracles. G. John Ikenberry is the Albert G. Milbank professor of politics and international affairs at Princeton University in the department of politics and the Woodrow Wilson School of Public and International Affairs.
