Francis Fukuyama, political scientist, author, and Senior Fellow at Stanford’s Freeman Spogli Institute, was the guest at ThePrint’s Off the Cuff. Fukuyama talked about how China is using the pandemic as an opportunity to push boundaries in its neighbourhood. He mentioned how the social policies adopted by Prime Minister Narendra Modi were taking India down the wrong path, and social harmony is necessary for any country that wants a strong foreign policy. He also talked about what US’s foreign policy could look like under former Vice President Joe Biden as opposed to President Donald Trump.
Why news media is in crisis & How you can fix it
India needs free, fair, non-hyphenated and questioning journalism even more as it faces multiple crises.
But the news media is in a crisis of its own. There have been brutal layoffs and pay-cuts. The best of journalism is shrinking, yielding to crude prime-time spectacle.
ThePrint has the finest young reporters, columnists and editors working for it. Sustaining journalism of this quality needs smart and thinking people like you to pay for it. Whether you live in India or overseas, you can do it here.
