A look ahead

Every year, APP's staff, fellows, and interns waste some time thinking about the future. We take out the I-Ching sticks, shake the the 8-ball, and work ourselves into a trance trying to make sense out of what Joe Nye says. The result is our (in)famous In/Out list for the Asia policy crowd. Below we share some of our predictions with you. APP members have already received the full list. And of course we always welcome comments, input, and bribes to include your name or organization.
