In What's Next, Ian Bremmer, author of Every Nation for Itself and The End of the Free Market, and Douglas Rediker provide a guide to the major global issues and policies sure to dominate headlines in the next few years.
In the last four years, the world has suffered a financial market meltdown and subsequent global recession. The eurozone crisis looms, the Middle East is in turmoil, and a shifting power balance between emerging markets and developed economies is reordering the global economy as a whole. Facing these new challenges, what will the future hold?
Ian Bremmer and Douglas Rediker, together with experts, analysts, analyze these global issues and provide a template to understand how they will change our world in the next few years. Focusing in on the most volatile, powerful, or misunderstood developments, the authors examine the risks to the IMF, Russia's future, the roles of emerging markets, and the future of US foreign policy. They assess the political roots of the eurozone crisis, the key questions surrounding Afghanistan, important trends and tensions underway in Asia Pacific, and the rise of regionalism in the wake of fracturing international governance.
