The primacy of the US was established Germany Japan andItaly were ignored The five nations that formed the permanent members of the UN Security Council were the US UK France the Russian Federation and the Republic of China (Taiwan) brought in by the US as a check on the Russians This position was maintained until 1971 when the People’s Republic of China replaced Taiwan The Russians did not join the IMF and the World Bank after the Bretton Woods Conference and so the primacy of the US and Europe was established there The president of the World Bank is alwaysfrom the US and the managing director of the IMF from Europe Even in the IMF the US has over 17 per cent of the voting rights Japan and Germany were later allowed to join these institutions Both Japan and Germany joined the IMF in 1952 Japan joined the UN in 1956 and Germany joined the UN in 1973 It is hard to get countries inside the club to vacate their spots even if their positions have weakened dramatically since the original charter Nor is it easy to get other countries to get into apex positions For the 50 years post World War II the original structure held up quite well With the collapse of the Soviet Union the influence of the US became even sharper but the Russian nuclear stockpile kept it in the Security Council Over the last 15 years however the economic map of the world has been undergoing sharp change and institutional structures are increasingly less reflective Thirty years ago the US economy was 15 times the size of both China and India The Japanese economy was seven times their size Even though China quadrupled between 1986 and 2000 from $290 billion to $12 trillion even in 2000 it was just 25 per cent of the size of Japan and only 10 per cent the size of the US However by 2014 the position with respect to China has changed completely It has become 60 per cent the size of the US but has become more than two times the size of anyone else Even if it continues to grow at only half its current rate by 2028 it will be a $50 trillion economy In other words theUS will then become 60 per cent of China India’s rise was slower From being roughly the same size as China in 1986 it barelydoubled by 2000 But it quintupled between 2000 and 2014 to $2 trillion Continuing at that pace it will become a $10 trillion economy in 2028 — much bigger than Japan Germany or France Further both China and India are nuclear capable How much will the existing institutions need to adapt or risk obsolescence Today’s global institutions largely reflect past global reality China rightly believes that these institutions do not reflect its position By 2028 China but also India or Indonesia will not accept the status quo In terms of purchasing power parity this position will become even more untenable So multilateral institutions will need to adjust rapidly or be faced with the emergence of more institutions like the AIIB proposed by China or the New Development Bankset up by the BRICS nations But that is not the only problem How much sagacity must the newer powers show to manage a superior world order The world will need to learn to deal respectfully with declining powers especially those with nuclear capability Russia is a case in point As Russia declines economically with poor demographics and an overdependence on one commodity it is important not to allow the Russian people to feel marginalised and humiliated Jingoism and calls to former glory can allow its leaders domestic popularity that will be at odds with their position in the world A North Korea is bad enough but a badly behaved Russia will be a much more serious problem It has a massive nuclear stockpile and if it starts to behave like a rogue state global peace will be seriously threatened This is the challenge for the world We need global institutions to manage the world Increasingly the world will be challenged to recognise global best interest more than just national self-interest We will be challenged to create new institutions that recognise the new but don’t humiliate the old The new cannot be impatient and assertive and the old cannot lack grace or act with belligerence This will be the challenge to build a new stable world order The writer is chairman Asia Pacific Boston Consulting Group Views are personal For all the latest Opinion News download Indian Express App More Related NewsPublished: May 9 2015 12:00 am The Howrah Bridge in Kolkata Related News By: Amit Chaudhuri Calcutta is one of the great cities of modernity and Asia’s first cosmopolitan metropolis Like other great modern cities its cultural inheritance is contained not only in its literature cinema art and music or in its political and intellectual history but palpably in its lived spaces and its architectural ethos This ethos is remarkably distinctive and unique to Calcutta; it includes not only the rajbari mansions of north Calcutta and the grand colonial institutional buildings of central Calcutta but the houses in which people have lived and still live in various neighbourhoods in the city — Bakulbagan Hindustan Park Kidderpore Paddapukur Road Bhowanipore Sarat Bose Road and Ganguly Bagan to name just a few These and others areas should really be declared heritage precincts As Esther Duflo professor of poverty alleviation and development economics at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology has said Calcutta neighbourhoods should be showcased to the world in the same way that Prague and other great cities showcase their architecture The first reason for this is the vivid way in which the history of a unique Bengali modernity is represented by Calcutta’s buildings from the last century to the 1950s The second reason is that as Duflo points out these buildings and precincts are the very things that will attract the international visitor to the city But these houses are being torn down today at an incredibly rapid pace and so indiscriminately — principally for the land on which they stand — that there is an urgent need to introduce measures preventing such destruction Such measures would not be unique to Calcutta; all major cities worldwide whether in Europe (Berlin London Paris) Latin America or North America have laws that forbid the destruction of existing buildings Nor would they necessarily oppose new developments; such developments can and will take place in areas that can accommodate them as Calcutta expands Moreover a homeowner has a fundamental right to sell their property; but neither buyer nor seller should ideally have the right to demolish existing buildings since these add up to a city’s collective inheritance and history While there is a process in place to do with changing the name of a street which acknowledges the right that people have to object to the name-change there are no real guidelines to and hardly any accountability regarding demolition and it appears that the character of the neighbourhood or para can be destroyed with impunity Measures protecting not just heritage but both the cultural individuality and the multifariousness of the city as represented by its architecture are now long overdue in Calcutta; their introduction would show an unprecedented commitment to re-engage with this great city’s identity and history We believe that such an act of commitment is now unavoidable There are some immediate measures that the government should adopt without delay Share This Article Related Article The West Bengal Heritage Commission and the KMC Heritage Committee unfortunately lack teeth They should be empowered so that they can make urgent tangible contributions and also encouraged to work in consonance with each other The list of heritage buildings should be urgently and substantially extended Various neighbourhoods should be declared heritage zones or precincts and criteria should be swiftly established for doing so In this context one of the most practical solutions towards protection would be the one suggested by the architect Partha Ranjan Das — to introduce Transfer of Development Rights whereby owners of buildings are allowed to sell the equivalent of land value to “developers” who can then use those rights to extend new properties being built elsewhere In this way the great buildings and neighbourhoods will continue to survive Moreover Transfer of Development Rights costs the government nothing and in fact will earn it considerable revenue We urge the government to see this not as a marginal issue but as one that is central to the city’s history and to its future and to act without delay This letter was co-written with Pranab Bardhan Kaushik Basu Sugata Bose Jogen Chowdhury Partha Ranjan Das Esther Duflo Bonani Kakkar GM Kapur Anuradha Lohia Chittrovanu Majumdar Aparna Sen Sujata Sen Dayanita Singh and Jawhar Sircar Here is an excerpt from a letter of support from Amartya Sen: “I am writing this letter from the campus of Stanford University which I am visiting for a week to write a joint paper with Kenneth Arrow on ‘what we owe to the future generations’ This is a largely technical paper in economics but I am struck by a coincidence here I cannot but feel that the general topic of the joint paper I am writing with Arrow is very close to the particular subject of your joint letter We do owe to the future generations a preserved and unmutilated heritage of Calcutta’s eccentric but exciting old buildings I hope we succeed in bequeathing to people in the future the opportunity of enjoying Calcutta’s enthralling architectural inheritance” For all the latest Opinion News download Indian Express App More Related Newsand a partly centrally planned development strategy to accelerate growth.000 admissions in municipal schools this year, The president of the organisation, Officials said investigations are still underway.” Ranbir Singh,said,The ticket distribution system is flawed In some casessenior members of the AAP were blindly given tickets The parivar is a form of protest against such procedures within the AAP? allowing itself to be cornered into passing a bad nuclear liability law.
