Capitalism in the 21st Century: No Asian Century but Austerity for All

Mr. Nair was chairman of Environmental Resources Management (ERM), building it into Asia's leading environmental consultancy. For more than a decade, in advising governments and multi-national corporations, he has strongly advocated a more sustainable approach to development in Asia.
