Jason Hartman talks with Parag Khanna, author of The Future is Asian and founder of FutureMap, about what’s really going on in regards to the trade war and its impact on Asia (which doesn’t just mean China). The two discuss the role of technology in killing jobs around the world and Asia’s impact on global consumption growth.
