"The Rise of Asia and The New Economic Order"
                The Rise of Developing Asia and the New Economic Order<http://www.economics.harvard.edu/faculty/jorgenson/files/JPO5926.pdf>, Journal of Policy Modeling, Vol. 33, Issue 5, 698-745, September-October 2011, with Khuong Vu

Professor Jorgensen will shift attention from threats to the short-term growth of the world economy, as formidable as these may be, to growth potential over the next decade. The fundamentals for the world economy are strong. Moreover, it is time to recognize the emerging trends that have developed since the watershed reforms of China and India more than two decades ago. His theme will be that a massive reconfiguration of the world economy is gradually unfolding and will be completed in the next ten years. The first of the major trends in the world economy to be realized within the next decade is that China will overtake the U.S. in 2015. The second major trend is that Developing Asia will overtake the G7 in 2016 in terms of purchasing power parities. This trend will be largely driven by the rapid growth of China, but India will also make a significant contribution.The final long-term development is that India will overtake Japan, Russia will overtake Germany, and Brazil will overtake the U.K., leading to a New World Economic Order in 2020: China, the U.S., India, Japan, Russia, Germany, and Brazil.
