How to Run the World:
One on One with Parag Khanna

Hosted by CBC's Adrian Harewood
"By exhorting leaders to make use of new, open technologies that encourage more diverse and dynamic marketplaces, Parag Khanna makes a powerful argument: the world can become smarter than the sum of its parts. We need to pay attention to his ideas.
— Eric Schmidt, CEO, Google

International bestseller Parag Khanna, director of the Global Governance Initiative in the American Strategy Program of the New America Foundation joins us to discuss his cutting-edge manifesto for diplomacy in a borderless world. 

 

With his trademark energy, intellect and wit, Khanna reveals how a new “mega-diplomacy” consisting of coalitions among motivated technocrats, influential executives, super-philanthropists, cause-mopolitan activists and everyday churchgoers can assemble the talent, pool the money and deploy the resources to make the global economy fairer, rebuild failed states, combat terrorism, promote good governance, deliver food, water, health care and education to those in need, and prevent environmental collapse. With examples taken from the smartest capital cities, most progressive boardrooms and frontline NGOs, Khanna shows how mega-diplomacy is more than an ad hoc approach to running a world where no one is in charge—it is the playbook for creating a stable and self-correcting world for future generations.
