The West and Asia - where is the moral vacuum?

Conversations With History: The Rise of Asia and the Decline of the West (57min, YouTube) This one is very good. Kishore Mahmubani's book 'The New Asian Hemisphere' is consciously "painful reading" for Westerners. (Gotta love Harry Kreisler:)

Daniel Bell on "China's New Confucianism" (44min, search iTunes for the Big Ideas Audio Podcast, Bell's is the 12 April 2008 lecture). This is a pretty fascinating introduction to the contemporary revival of confucianism in Chinese culture.
