Asia ( ( listen)) is Earth's largest and most populous continent, located primarily in the Eastern and Northern Hemispheres. It shares the continental landmass of Eurasia with the continent of Europe and the continental landmass of Afro-Eurasia with both Europe and Africa. Asia covers an area of 44,579,000 square kilometres (17,212,000 sq mi), about 30% of Earth's total land area and 8.7% of the Earth's total surface area. The continent, which has long been home to the majority of the human population, was the site of many of the first civilizations. Asia is notable for not only its overall large size and population, but also dense and large settlements, as well as vast barely populated regions. Its 4.5 billion people constitute roughly 60% of the world's population.
Economics () is the social science that studies the production, distribution, and consumption of goods and services.
Politics (from Greek: πολιτικά, translit. Politiká, meaning "affairs of the cities") is the process of making decisions that apply to members of a group.
Economics is, in essence, the study of poverty.
Ronald Max Hartwell, The Long Debate on Poverty (1972), p. 3
Despite the intentions of human politics, history has shown that it is often the one, not the many, who have led the world towards its destiny... now turn your eyes to Earth once more and tell me what you see.
Uatu, Earth X, ch. 3, written by Jim Krueger and Alex Ross
The PAX results reflect the BBC’s ongoing commitment to and investment in Asia, a region that has long been a key market for the channel and one where we are proud to be enjoying such success. BBC World News has revamped its output in Asia, including the successful launch of weekday programme Newsday, presented live from London and Singapore, and introduced specially commissioned series, such as Mishal Husain Meets and Thailand Direct. And as viewers across Asia demonstrate a growing appetite for global news, they’re increasingly turning to BBC World News and for trusted and impartial coverage of global and local events. Viewers have plenty to look forward to in the coming months as BBC World News moves to its new base in Central London. New HD studios, dynamic presentation and state-of-the-art graphics will enhance the viewing experience and showcase the BBC’s established journalistic credentials in an engaging and compelling way. --Jim Egan, COO of BBC Global News.
