Now; in the 21st century; the world is being irreversibly Asianized. The “Asian Century” is even bigger than you think. Far greater than just China; the new Asian system taking shape is a multi-civilizational order spanning Saudi Arabia to Japan; and Russia to Australia—linking five billion people through trade; finance and infrastructure networks that together represent 40 percent of global GDP.

Rather; Asia is returning to the stable multipolar order that existed long before European colonialism and American dominance; with India and Southeast Asia coming into their own as economic and strategic hubs. The world has gotten used to hearing “America First”—but is it ready for “Asia First”? Get ready to see the world; and the future; from the Asian point-of-view.
