ADVISORY: CAP to Host Author Parag Khanna for Discussion on Connectivity and its Effect on the Future of Civilization
Washington, D.C. — The Center for American Progress will host a discussion with Parag Khanna, author of Connectography. Khanna presents a radical new take on American strategy: Connectivity rather than countries is the way to think about the 21st century. The discussion will focus on this and its effect on the United States and the world.
The most connected powers and people will be the most successful. Khanna shows how mankind is re-engineering planet Earth, investing up to $10 trillion per year in transportation, energy, and communications infrastructure linking the world’s burgeoning megacities together. This new global network civilization has profound consequences for geopolitics, economics, demographics, the environment, and social identity. Khanna takes us from Ukraine to Iran, Mongolia to North Korea, Pakistan to Nigeria, and across the Arctic Circle and the South China Sea to explain the rapid and unprecedented changes affecting every part of the planet.
