The Billionaire Raj — Can India Become Asia's Next Great Power?

Billionaire book cover

Can one of the most divided nations on the planet become its next superpower? James Crabtree's The Billionaire Raj: A Journey Through India's New Gilded Age reveals the titans of politics and industry re-shaping India in a period of breakneck change – from controversial prime minister Narendra Modi, victor in the largest election in history, to the leading lights of the country’s burgeoning billionaire class. But can India now go on to become Asia's second superpower? Our panel will discuss India's economic and geopolitical rise, the prospects for Prime Minister Narendra Modi in 2019's crucial election, and the India's likely relations with America, China and ASEAN. 


Copies of The Billionaire Raj would be on sale at the event
