    schema:description ""Following economic booms in Hong Kong, Singapore, South Korea, and Taiwan--the four Asian Tigers--attention has shifted to success stories in other Asian economies. However, a number of challenges have also emerged that could threaten the region's development over the next decade. Through the Eyes of Tiger Cubs offers a unique glimpse into the younger generation's view of Asia's future. It draws on the perspective of more than 80 visionary young Asians, who have identified the key issues and who see innovative solutions for areas as diverse as education and labor markets, demographics and healthcare, energy and the environment, and governance and geopolitics. The book's insights are based on a collection of think-pieces from a broad range of young Asians--the result of a competition organized by the Asia Business Council, Time magazine, the Lee Kuan Yew School of Public Policy at the National University of Singapore, as well as additional research by the Council. The book is unique in that it: provides a viewpoint in contrast to the usual perspective of businesses, governments, economists, and journalists; brings together the responses of almost a hundred young Asian thinkers to the questions 'What is the biggest challenge facing Asia over the next ten years?' 'Why?' and 'What should be done about it?'; offers policy makers, business leaders, and others who are concerned about the future of Asia a unique glimpse into the younger generation's vision. The next generation has a high stake in ensuring Asia's long-term growth. Gain a unique perspective on how the leaders of tomorrow see the future."--Publisher's website."@en ;
