A New Missional Invitation without Western ParticipationbyWilmer Villacorta
While the United States was debating whether or not to raise its debt ceiling, many nations around the world waited for the global repercussions of a possible financial collapse. As I watched the news, I wondered what would happen if another financial super power would emerge in the wake of a U.S. collapse. This economic and political showdown in Washington, D.C. provided a dramatic backdrop to my recent visit to Hong Kong for a consultation on global leadership development. From October 14-17, 2013 the news concerning the US not meeting its financial responsibilities spread like a virus in Asia. The deadline for default became the focal point. As the investment capital in the region, Hong Kong would have played a key role in a changing scenario.
