Emerging Elites

Throughout emerging economies, the high officials and visionary politicians who constitute the intellectual elite are unanimous on one point. Emerging countries are not changing because Western analysts have shifted their perspective on them; rather, it is when these countries’ own elites grant themselves the necessary tools, and in return impose their own vision, that change occurs—both in emerging countries and throughout the world.

The Bridge Tank dialogues with economists, central bankers, lawyers who have entered politics, opinion leaders, and influencers who support a new concept of public choices. A number of them have proposed—and in some cases imposed—innovative “models” that can no longer be ignored. These diverse groups are already interconnected and engaged in discussion with each other.

The Bridge Tank reveals both the intellectual roots and the stages of production of these new models for business networking and public governance.
