China and India: What's in Store?

Economically, China and India are growing rapidly, but each faces major challenges inside and outside its borders, such as integration into the global economy, environmental damage, the demand for energy, and the social upheaval and strain on the infrastructure that come when millions move into mushrooming mega-cities. These two burgeoning powers have radically different forms of government. How will these differences play out in the face of these challenges, and how will the two powers interact in their region — and on a global stage? The panel includes Elizabeth C. Economy and Miles L. Rubin.
