The eyes of the West have recently been trained on China and India, but Vietnam is rising fast among its Asian peers.

Neither have much to offer a world facing environmental collapse, civic breakdown and a gathering crisis of permanent unemployment. This dismal, managerial politics fails to articulate a vision of a better world, driving people towards the anti-politics offered by Donald Trump and others. What is urgently n...
