    What could possibly go wrong with underlying technology that can research, write, draw, code, compose music, and possibly even think at least as well as many, if not most, human beings?

    Juan is an entrepreneur and an expert on the impact of life sciences and brain research on society. Mark is a businessman and academic who works at the intersection of strategy, operations, and analytics.

    Looking for Justice, One Person at a Time

    2023 looks likely to be a year of recession, inflation, social and labor unrest, war, the ravages of climate etc. One casualty of that mess is likely to be the rule of law; justice seems to take a beating when times are bad. Why is that?

    The demand for justice is not only a basic human right, but also a human need. Is it possible to deliver effective justice at the individual level, to actually make justice systems work for people?

    Sam Muller, believes the answer is an emphatic, “Yes”. He founded and today leads the Hague Institute for Innovation of Law (HiiL) they are in the business of building “people-centered justice” that works for everyone.

    Worth Repeating: From the Lab to Your Kitchen: Growing Tomorrow’s Dinner

    Worth Repeating: From the Lab to Your Kitchen: Growing Tomorrow’s Dinner

    At least one in nine of the almost eight billion people who live on earth are undernourished. As the 18th century economist Robert Malthus forecast, we seem on a path where the planet can’t produce enough food for the projected 10 billion people who will be alive in 2050. Climate change and wars will only make the global food situation more precarious.

    Is large scale famine inevitable?

    David Kaplan, a global leader in the new field of cellular agriculture, doesn’t think so. He believes the steaks and fish fillets that he and other scientists are literally growing in their labs can eventually feed a hungry world. What do you think?

    Worth Repeating: Asia for the Asians—but which Asians?

    Worth Repeating: Asia for the Asians—but which Asians?

    We live in a complicated, conflicted world. Russia's unprovoked war in Ukraine. US and European efforts to punish Russian aggression. China's growing geopolitical and military assertiveness.

    What about India? Today it's the world's sixth largest economy and famously, the world's largest democracy. But it aims higher. Prime Minister Modi recently declared that the country must accelerate its growth and development However, rapid economic growth might be the easy part compared to figuring out how to live with an aggressive China.
    When Chinese leaders intone their mantra of “Asia for the Asians” they don’t seem to be offering co-leadership to Delhi or anyone else.

    It seems inevitable that India and China will butt heads again, as both countries become stronger.

    C Raja Mohan, senior fellow at the Asia Society Policy Institute in Delhi, has a deep understanding of India’s foreign policy challenges. Listen as he explains how India can cope with a dangerous world and a dangerous neighbor.

    Worth Repeating: Who is Vladimir Putin?

    Worth Repeating: Who is Vladimir Putin?

    What does Putin want? How far will he go in his efforts to subjugate Ukraine? Does he have limits?

    By the time historians can answer those questions, it will be too late. Meanwhile, one of the best places to find answers might be in a recently published biography, entitled PUTIN by Philip Short. Short is a British journalist with a long career as a foreign correspondent and an accomplished author.

    Listen to Short discuss how Putin looks at the world, what turned him away from a partnership with the West, and the risk that his war could go nuclear.

    Dialogue of the deaf: Europe and China

    Dialogue of the deaf: Europe and China

    There is no doubt that the prevailing view of China in many European capitals has flipped from growing cooperation to feared confrontation.

    What happened? Did President Xi’s hardening approaches—from wolf warrior diplomacy to his “No Limits” commitment to Russia, to lecturing Western leaders—shock European leaders? Did American pressure on 5G, Huawei and microchips force a strategic rethink? Can Europe actually afford to confront China?

    Andrew Small has answers. A deeply experienced policy analyst, Small is a senior fellow at the German Marshall Fund, and recently published, "No Limits: The Inside Story of China's War with the West." That book and this conversation explain how and why he thinks that the Chinese challenge is dramatically and dangerously changing.
