How can the world’s powers make and keep peace? Kishore Mahbubani sees our planet as relatively peaceful in history’s big picture and has ideas on how to keep it that way. The author and former Ambassador to the UN from Singapore talks to Think host Krys Boyd today at noon.

For Mahbubani, the key to compromise isn’t in failed cases of diplomacy, but in the lack of conflict between likely foes. The U.S. is the world’s number one power, and China is number two. Mahbubani dissects the “geopolitical calm” between the two for Foreign Policy magazine.

The World Affairs Council of Dallas brings Mahbubani to town behind his book, The Great Convergence: Asia, the West, and the Logic of One World. He'll speak tonight at the Crescent Hotel.

Listen to Think from noon to 2 p.m., Monday through Thursday, on KERA 90.1 or stream the show at kera.org.
