Travels FromNew York, NEW YORK
At a glance:Ian Bremmer is a political scientist who helps business leaders, policymakers, and the general public make sense of the world around them.
Ian is credited with bringing the craft of political risk to financial markets, creating Wall Street’s first global political risk index (GPRI), and for establishing political risk as an academic discipline. His definition of emerging markets—”those countries where politics matters at least as much as economics for market outcomes”—has become an industry standard. “G-Zero,” his term for a global power vacuum in which no country is willing and able to set the international agenda, is widely accepted by policymakers and thought leaders.
A prolific writer, Ian is the author of ten books, including the New York Times bestseller “Us vs Them: The Failure of Globalism” which examines the rise of populism across the world. He also serves as the foreign affairs columnist and editor at large for Time magazine. He currently teaches at Columbia University’s School of International and Public Affairs and previously was a professor at New York University.
America's Role in the 21st CenturyAmerica's global power was unchallenged in the immediate aftermath of the Cold War, but today international terrorism, nuclear proliferation, the rise of China, and an increasingly globalized world all pose threats to America's continued leadership. Eurasia Group President Ian Bremmer, founder of the world's largest political risk consultancy, discusses America's national interests, its foreign policy, and the potential for a shift to a multipolar world. The implications for world politics– and the global markets– are critical.
China, India, and Beyond: The Opportunities and Pitfalls of Asian GrowthChina bestrides the world as a colossus, and business leaders can't get enough from the promised riches of Asia. But does unprecedented growth mean that your company will benefit from it? Ian Bremmer, intellectual entrepreneur and President of Eurasia Group, explains the dangers of Asian growth for global investors seeking to build a presence in international markets; for companies seeking to sell their products there; and for the global markets more broadly.
The Politics of Global EnergyOil prices are increasingly susceptible to international politics–for both the world's supply and demand. Ian Bremmer, founder and president of the world's largest political risk consultancy, shares his views on what's in store for the politics of global energy– from spiraling Chinese and Indian growth in consumption to the dangers of future oil export from the Middle East, Russia and the Caspian, and West Africa.
Managing Risk in an Unstable WorldTo navigate globalization's choppy waters, every business leader analyzes economic risk when considering overseas investments or looking at market exposure. But do you look beyond reassuring data about per-capita income or economic growth– to assess the political risk of doing business in specific countries? If not, you may get blindsided when political forces shape markets in unexpected ways– from European accession in Turkey, social unrest in India, or protectionist legislation on China. Acclaimed political analyst and entrepreneur Ian Bremmer explains that by blending political and economic risk analysis, you make savvier investment decisions– seizing valuable opportunities around the globe while avoiding danger zones.
The Fat Tail: The Power of Political Knowledge for Strategic InvestingThe fallout from the still-unfolding global financial crisis provides several perfect examples of "fat tail" risk, those that flow from the low-probability, high-impact events that generate upheaval more often than we think. Bremmer shares with audiences how an understanding of the political dynamics generated by the financial crisis helps us forecast market risks, why politics matter more than ever for market performance, why the world's wealthiest countries have begun to behave like emerging market states, and what all this means for investors and companies.
The event went great with almost 1,300 attendees it was the most successful one yet. Ian was just FANTASTIC! Everyone I asked was very thrilled to have been part of this conference and especially to have had the opportunity to listen to Ian speak. If people didn’t know who Ian Bremmer was, now they are certainly glad they do.
