Ignoring Billions

Since I started working for iAsiaWorks, I keep thinking about weird stuff. For one: which force is stronger: capitalism or myopia? Will the people who have declared the arrival of the “new world economy” actually involve the whole world. Up to this point, the internet moguls have focussed almost exclusively on the western world. Doesn’t it make sense to involve the whole world in a world economy, rather than ignoring a giant chunk of it (namely, Asia)?
