Q&A with Peter Zeihan, Part 2: Three New Wars

We recently met with geopolitical strategist Peter Zeihan to discuss world events since the American election and his new book, “The Absent Superpower: The Shale Revolution and a World without America.” In the book, Peter credits energy and resource innovations with reshaping the global geopolitical environment.

We covered so much ground in our visit with Peter that we decided to break it into two reports. Last month in part 1, we discussed the broad impact of the Shale Revolution, which he calls, “the greatest evolution of the American industrial space since 1970,” and which he expects to accelerate the breakdown of the global order as we know it.  Today, in part 2, we examine the major global shifts in geopolitics that will result as the US moves into energy independence. Peter believes this will reshape global geopolitics, leading to three major conflicts. It is these conflicts we asked him to discuss in greater detail. Click the link below to download the Q&A. We hope you enjoy the discussion.
