Choosing a Path in the World Ahead - WSJ
By PEGGY NOONAN
June 4, 2015 7

political scientist and global risk strategist Ian Bremmer, a foreign-affairs columnist at Time, has written a book asking Americans themselves to decide what our policy should be, and offering what he sees as three central options.

“America,” he writes, “will remain the world’s only superpower for the foreseeable future. But what sort of superpower should it be? What role should America play in the world? What role do you want America to play?”

Ian Bremmer on Pivot States - WSJ.com
April 27, 2012 | WSJ | By IAN BREMMER.

The Future Belongs to the Flexible
In the emerging global order, the key to a country's success will be courting multiple partners.

We're entering a "G-Zero" world: one in which no single nation (not even the U.S.) or alliance of governments (certainly not the G-7 or G-20) possesses the political and economic muscle to drive an international agenda. In this new decentralized global order, growth isn't enough. A country also must have resilience—the power to pivot....In the years ahead, forget about much-discussed artificial groupings like the BRICS (Brazil, Russia, India, China and South Africa) and the so-called "Next 11" (N11), a roster of potential powerhouses that includes Turkey and South Korea but also political powder kegs like Pakistan, Nigeria and Iran.

In our emerging G-Zero world, with no single power able to set the agenda, the winners and losers of the next generation will be determined not by the rubrics of the moment but by how well and often they are able to pivot.

Business Books: Why Russia and China will eat your lunch
May 28, 2010 | Reuters | by Herbert Lash. The Western
multinationals that have dominated global trade for decades are going to
have their lunch eaten in China and elsewhere, and many are unaware
it's about to happen. That's the warning in "The End of the Free
Market" (Portfolio, $26.95), a new book by political risk expert Ian
Bremmer. Bremmer, known for showing the effect of political turmoil on
financial markets, argues that China, Russia and other emerging markets
have developed a new economic model -- state capitalism -- that clashes
with the free-market system of the West.
