I will describe a condition on the Bergman metrics of a Fano manifold M, which guarantees the existence of a Kähler-Einstein metric on M.  I will also discuss a conjectural relationship between this condition and M's higher alpha-invariants \alpha_{m,k}(M), analogous to a 1991 theorem of Tian for \alpha_{m,2}(M).
