Managing Risk in an Unstable World

To navigate globalization, every business decision-maker weighs economic variables when considering overseas investments or market exposure. But to spot crucial opportunities and manage risk, they must also understand the political factors and trends changing our world in real-time. Whether it’s increasingly contentious relations between China and the United States, the war in Ukraine, a more complex regulatory environment in Europe, a newly global focus from India, surges of populism in Latin America, heightened competition in Africa, or dozens of other politically driven trends, political analyst and entrepreneur Ian Bremmer will detail how political risk is creating new sets of business winners and losers.

At this presentation audiences will learn:
– How to spot political risk on the horizon and balance it against economic opportunities.
– How to understand the opportunities, and dangers, of multilayered relations between Washington and Beijing.
– How to identify the broader trends remaking tomorrow’s global balance of power.
– How to process the technological changes now transforming geopolitics.

Navigating the Geopolitical Recession

For the past 15 years, the post-Cold War global order has been breaking down, leaving us to respond to a series of crises with both political, market, and business implications. Ian Bremmer explains that geopolitics has entered a bust cycle. The world’s most powerful country— the United States — has become the most politically dysfunctional rich-world country. The world’s most important bilateral relationship — US-China —is deteriorating more quickly than leaders can build new guardrails. Today’s global institutions no longer reflect the world’s true balance of power. The result: a growing vacuum of leadership and cross-border coordination. This geopolitical recession will continue to limit our ability to respond to crises like the pandemic, the Russia-Ukraine war, climate change, and the emergence of disruptive new technologies.

Ian will share ideas and insights to help policymakers and business decisionmakers navigate a world in accelerating transition.
