Overview

From the world’s leading experts on geopolitical risk, a guide to the major global issues and policies sure to dominate headlines in the next few years.

In the last four years, the world has suffered a financial market meltdown and subsequent global recession. The eurozone crisis looms, the Middle East is in turmoil, and a shifting power balance between emerging markets and developed economies is reordering the global economy as a whole. Political and economic challenges intertwine now more than ever before, as the demands of local politics and global business grow increasingly complex and begin to conflict in new ways. Facing these new challenges, what will the future hold?

Ian Bremmer and Douglas Rediker, together with experts, analysts, and many of their colleagues from the World Economic Forum’s Global Agenda Council on Geopolitical Risk, analyze these global issues and provide a template to understand how they will change our world in the next few years. Focusing on the most volatile, powerful, or misunderstood developments, the authors examine, among other topics: 
  • The risks to the International Monetary Fund
  • Russia’s future
  • The roles of emerging markets
  • The political roots of the eurozone crisis
  • Important trends and tensions in Asia-Pacific
  • The rise of regionalism in the wake of fracturing international governance

Most importantly, the contributors provide guidance on how to understand some of the key dynamics in the rapidly evolving global game.
