In his latest book, “Black Mass”, John Gray describes how the geopolitical struggle between the world’s great powers for access to energy is tangled up with wars of religion in the Middle East, central Asia, Pakistan and Afghanistan, to name a few. He’s quick to point out that this is not just a conflict between Islam and the West, but all industrial societies, as we watch China and India adopt an energy-intensive way of life that is creating ripples globally.

In “Rogue Economics”, Loretta Napoleoni lays out historically the dark economic forces unleashed by the spread of democracy into geopolitical areas formerly ruled by oppressive or repressive regimes, thereby exposing the paradoxical economic connections of the new global marketplace.

John Gray and Loretta Napoleoni discuss the interplay of economics, politics and religion and the impact of globalisation in the 21st century.

Chair: Chris Trotter.
