China’s Great Wall of Debt unravels an incredibly complex and opaque economy, one whose fortunes - for better or worse - will shape the globe like never before. Over the course of a decade spent reporting on the ground in China as a financial journalist, Dinny McMahon gradually came to the conclusion that the widely held belief in China’s inevitable economic ascent is dangerously wrong. George Friedman, founder of Stratfor, has become a leading expert in geopolitical forecasting, sought after for his thoughtful assessments of current trends and near-future events. Jim Mattis, A fascinating, eye-opening, and often shocking look at what lies ahead for the United States—a The premise that the 21st century will be defined by how other nations cope with the unstoppable ascendancy of the United States seems absurd now that, in the age of Trump, the real struggle seems to be how to fill the gap left by the retreat of the United States as a world-class player in international affairs and indeed even in its own governance. By: Fun and easy to follow. Peter Zeihan, Narrated by: Robert D. Kaplan, Narrated by: How will technology change the picture?

In summary: written by an American purely for Americans presumably to cheer them up. Noah Michael Levine, War, Strategy, and American Interests in the Twenty-First Century, Narrated by: As Friedman admits, this is shamelessly, uncompromisingly and sometimes almost offensively pro-US -but (if you can) set this aside this there are a number of interesting conclusions drawn about the driving causes for key events in world history.

But not to worry, whether you're negotiating with vendors in Asia, exploring potential markets in Africa, or leading a diverse team at home, you don't have to master the nuances of every culture you encounter.

As almost10 years elapsed since this book has been published it is interesting to compare it with real events that had shaped world history (for last decade) and assess the trajectory of events in comparison to the book.

Friedman attempts to forecast the next century through his "history as a chess game" theory, which postulates that in global politics, as in chess, there may seem to be a limitless number of potential moves, but, in actuality, only a few are feasible at a given time. Drawing on a profound understanding of geopolitical patterns dating back to the Roman Empire, he shows that we are now, for the first time in half a millennium, experiencing the dawn of a new historical cycle. Chinese assertiveness, Huntington argues, rises out of its felt grievances against a relatively weakening West. But after a while, the predictions become so implausible that he might as well have written a work of fiction. For example, he speaks a lot of "historic enemies" when describing potential conflicts -- while I'm sure that serious wars won't go away, I have a difficult time believing that modern states will be anywhere near as likely to mobilize their citizens for large-scale conflicts with other states as they were in the 19th and 20th centuries, especially when those citizens will have many ways of communicating with each other directly. 100 years may seem too far to look ahead, the but the exercise of looking towards the future is one of the best ways we have to understand where we are today.
