CBC Radio: How Connectivity Reshapes the World Map

CBC Radio | 20 May 2016

National borders are vanishing, new megacities are emerging and it's all good, according to author Parag Khanna. 

Khanna, a leading global strategist, was a former adviser to the U.S. National Intelligence Council and also worked as senior geopolitical adviser to U.S. Special Operations forces in Iraq and Afghanistan.

In his new book, Connectography: Mapping the Future of Global Civilization, Khanna argues that beneath a chatoci world that appears to be falling apart is a new foundation of connectivity pulling it together. He says in this emerging global network civlization, megacities compete over connectivity more than borders.

The Current's Friday host Kelly Crowe speaks with Khanna on his visions for our hyper-connected future and asks about his surprising predictions for Canada.
