The End of the (Developing) World?

by Peter Zeihan on June 11, 2022

In case you haven’t heard, my upcoming book The End of the World is Just the Beginning gets released this Tuesday, June 14. You can pre-order it here.

A lot of my work, and my books up to this point, have been about the rise of powerful nations and the global framework that got them there. This new book is a bit of a different creature.

This book is about the end of that system–namely, globalization–and what that means for our collective future. Whether its agriculture or manufacturing or finance or energy, there’s a chapter for everyone on how the pillars of the developed economy will look on the backend of one of the largest upheavals of the global economy since the end of World War II.

Here’s a video paraphrasing several of the book’s themes, applying them to the raft countries that we today collectively know as “the developing world.”
