This is an archived blog post from The Acorn.
Regular readers will be familiar with The Acorn’s distaste for hyphenation and conjugation of China and India. Sung Won Kim, David P Fidler, and Sumit Ganguly have come up with a better way to describe the emerging geopolitical salience of India and China—they call it the “Eastphalian geopolitical order”. Of course, you need to have a little bit of a background in history or international relations theory to get it.
Niall Ferguson, on the other hand, has invented a literally ghastly word to describe “the partnership between the big saver and the big spender”—“Chimerica” is a grotesque reminder of how the global financial crisis was born out of geo-economic imbalance.
