Forbes Asia;12/22/2008, Vol. 4 Issue 22, p18
The article comments on the need of the Western countries to involve Asian economies in the global decision making to deal with economic crises. It opines that the three great economies of Asia, Japan, China, and India, will be less affected than the economies of Europe and the Americas. It states that the West is no longer strong enough to carry the burden of leading, defending, fine-tuning and advancing the civilization of the world and the load must be distributed.
