Strategy of the greats - Moving towards IR 5.0 (Opinion)
The world is changing at a frightening speed. It did not change for 18 centuries after 1 AD, with India and China owning half the world's GDP almost throughout this period, till 1760. The first and second industrial revolutions changed everything in two centuries thereafter with China and India's share going down from 50 to 5 per cent, and the West gaining where these technologies were discovered. The 1950s started the third industrial revolution, followed by fourth industrial revolution, both communication and digital revolutions in a globalized world connected on wire or wireless, where it was difficult saving technologies only in the countries where they were discovered. Further and strangely, The US and other advanced countries chose to help China and the other countries. The US also got convinced that it was advantageous to help China grow fast, to counter Russia, their cold war rival. The growth pattern moved towards the East, particularly China with US's active and sometimes unethical help. China grew to The US' size in GDP in record time. And seven US Presidents did not understand this.
