Geopolitical risk became a trending topic of the past year, but in reality, this trend has been unfolding for decades. Where some saw a peaceful future at the end of the Cold War and collapse of the Soviet Union, others recognized the instability this inevitable imbalance of global power would cause. Stratfor Vice President of Strategic Analysis Rodger Baker explores the rise of globalization and new geopolitical realities that both governments and global businesses must face.
We're headed toward a global demographic crunch. Rising populations, aging societies and urbanization intersect with science and new technologies to create both unique challenges and opportunities for global economies. Some have chosen to address those challenges head on while others appear to be withdrawing from their role in global governance. Reva Goujon, vice president of global analysis at Stratfor, examines the geopolitical realities and how those with both innovative spirit and vision can adapt.
