The referenced media source is missing and needs to be re-embedded.

Is Asia in the ascendancy, and the West in decline?  How does the rise of Asia affect power dynamics and competition with Western markets? Will China's creation of its own regional banking and investment vehicles weaken Western-dominated global financial institutions? Does the rise of cryptocurrency threaten to further destabilize and restructure markets?

Kimberly Kay Hoang, associate professor of sociology and director of the Institute for Global Studies at the University of Chicago, discusses economic soft power and its role in the broader pattern of Asian ascendency. In conversation with Graduate Center Professor John Torpey, director of the Ralph Bunche Institute for International Studies.
