Thumbs up MIT World Offers Free Streaming Videos

MIT World, a service of the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, offers a range of videos consisting of speeches of interest to the greater academic and educational communities.

For example, a lecture of an hour and thirty minutes is available on the return of India and China to their historical roles on the world stage.

The world isn’t so much flat as gravely tilting, “and may be on the way to some kind of self-destruction,” believes Clyde Prestowitz, Jr. We’re due for a major rebalancing of global economic might, which the U.S. may well experience as catastrophic change. There are historic cycles, he tells us. As recently as 1850, China was the world’s largest economy, but by 1950, the U.S. and Europe had come to dominate the scene. Once again “the hinge of history is taking a big turn.” China and India are fast overtaking Western nations in economic growth, driven by the digital revolution: “Half the world has come onto the capitalist road …at the moment when the road becomes a freeway,” says Prestowitz.
