Professor Kishore Mahbubani– The Return of Asia
This is intended for the benefit of my doctoral students at the Techo Sen School of Government and International Relations, The University of Cambodia. I think it is useful to share the thoughts of this controversial and strategic thinker and Dean and Professor Kishore Mahbubani of the Lee Kuan Yew School of Public Policy, National University of Singapore with all of you.
I also hope my fellow Malaysians can see why our nation is today’s laggard in Southeast Asia. The reason is very simple and that is we have mediocre and corrupt leadership and a culture that promotes mediocrity and dependency on a nanny state.–Din Merican
