Abstract:

Many people think the lines on the map no longer matter, but geopolitical expert Parag Khanna says they do. Starting with maps from 1945, when the globe held 100 countries, and going up to the present day (200 countries), Khanna explains in this TEDTalk the root causes of border conflicts worldwide and proposes simple yet cunning solutions for each. Says Wired, "Here's one view of America: the U.S. is a modern-day Roman Empire, slowly crumbling into history's dustbin. Here's Parag Khanna's view: 'Nonsense!'" But Khanna foresees a future where the new powerhouses may not be the players you'd expect.
