Anti-Imperialism/Foreign Policy

2020 WM Sustainability Forum – Peter Zeihan

Peter Zeihan is a private intelligence analyst who literally makes his living offering hard-nosed, realistic advice to the capitalist class. In his lectures, Zeihan explains why the American Empire is going down, why the Russophobia of the DNC/MSNBC crowd and the Sinophobia of the Republican/FOX crowd is misplaced, why Iran is the real bulwark against the chaos created by the Zionist/Wahhabi axis in the Middle East, why Turkey’s neo-Ottoman expansion is the real worry in Central Asia, why the prospect of Saudi acquisition of nuclear weapons is the real danger, why the world is undergoing a transformation comparable to the Age of Exploration, and why the future post-American Empire multipolar order will be led by Argentina in Latin America, France in Western Europe, Turkey in Central Asia, Iran in the Middle East, and Japan in East Asia.

It’s interesting how an advisor to Systemists and an anti-Systemist like myself came to basically the same conclusions independently of each other.

Peter Zeihan is a geopolitical strategist, which is a fancy way of saying he helps people understand how the world works. Peter combines an expert understanding of demography, economics, energy, politics, technology, and security to help clients best prepare for an uncertain future. Over the course of his career, Peter has worked for the US State Department in Australia, the DC think tank community, and helped develop the analytical models for Stratfor, one of the world’s premier private intelligence companies. Peter founded his own firm — Zeihan on Geopolitics — in 2012 in order to provide a select group of clients with direct, custom analytical products. Today those clients represent a vast array of sectors including energy majors, financial institutions, business associations, agricultural interests, universities and the U.S. military. With a keen eye toward what will drive tomorrow’s headlines, his irreverent approach transforms topics that are normally dense and heavy into accessible, relevant takeaways for audiences of all types. Peter is a critically-acclaimed author whose first two books — The Accidental Superpower and The Absent Superpower — have been recommended by Mitt Romney, Fareed Zakaria and Ian Bremmer. His forthcoming third title, Disunited Nations: The Scramble for Power in an Ungoverned World will be available late-2019.
