The developing world faces the dilemma of improving living standards for hundreds of millions of people with finite resources. Chandran Nair, Founder and Chief Executive Officer of the Global Institute For Tomorrow and author of The Sustainable State, asserts the only path out for large developing nations is a system of strong state governance which can consistently intervene in the economy to protect common resources, resolve persistent externalities and support access to the basic rights of life for the poor majority. He examines the environmental and socio-economic after-effects brought by the Western free-market model, for instance, the United States with less than 5 percent of the world\'s population consumes nearly a quarter of its resources. Mr. Nair will compare the performance of the two largest developing nations – China and India – to indicate how a strong state is the best chance to achieve the goals of sustainable development.
