We can´t hide it, here at VisualPolitik we love Asia, and that’s partly because, we believe that the world’s centre is already on this continent. But in the last few decades, one country has stood out of the crowd, and that is China. China has faced two major threats in the last years: less growth and much, much, more debt. In fact, this has even lead to an important question: Can China go bankrupt? Well, that's what we'll be talking in today's video!

South Korean companies are on fire. And this is a surprise given that in 1960, South Korea was an extremely poor country. And no, we are not talking about relative poverty here. Other countries like Gabon or Zimbabwe were more developed. Today we are going to talk about South Korea!

By 2050, an estimated 10 billion people will live on earth. How are we going to provide everybody with basic needs while also avoiding the worst impacts of climate change? In a talk packed with wit and wisdom, science journalist Charles C.

India is bureaucrat's paradise. In fact, if that were to be the key to prosperity, India would probably be the wealthiest country in the world. Unfortunately, bureaucracy, instead of encouraging business, prevents it... In this video we talk about India's current challenges and its posible future.
