With the New Year’s holiday at hand, we’ve convened our panel for the last Worldfocus Week in Review of 2009.
We’ve departed from our usual pattern, and instead we look at a broader issue that was the subtext for much of the news from 2009 — what Fareed Zakaria has termed the “rise of the rest.”
To discuss America’s changing role in the world, Martin Savidge is joined by Garrick Utley, president of the Levin Institute of the State University of New York, and Rana Foroohar, senior editor of Newsweek’s international editions.
Given the events of the past year, what are your hopes for the world in 2010?
