Us vs Them: Failure of Globalism

IAN BREMMER WAS NAMED LINKEDIN’S #1 TOP INFLUENCER in 2017 ————– ‘Required reading to help repair a world in pieces and build a world at peace’ – Antonio Guterres, United Nations Secretary General ————– ‘Ian Bremmer is provocative, controversial, and always intelligent about the state of the world, which he knows so well’ – Christine Lagarde, Managing Director of the International Monetary Fund ————– From Brexit, to Donald Trump, to extremist parties in Europe and the developing world, populism has dominated recent headlines. But what explains the rise of leaders who stoke nationalist anger in their countries, from Le Pen to Erdogan? How long will the populist wave last? Who will be the winners and losers in this climate, and how can we defend the values of democracy, free trade and international cooperation? No one is better suited to explore these questions than Ian Bremmer, the CEO of the Eurasia Group and acclaimed Time magazine columnist. Analysing the social, economic and technological forces fuelling this new wave of populism, Bremmer explains why we’re witnessing a rejection of the democratic, global, cosmopolitan trends of the late 20th century. Us vs. Them is a definitive guide to navigating the shifting political landscape, for businesses looking to weather and survive the populist storm. ————– ‘Global politics is a jungle today. Thank goodness Ian Bremmer can be your guide’ – David Miliband, president and CEO of the International Rescue Committee ‘A masterful analysis of why global crashed and populism soared’ – Adam Grant, author of Give and Take, and Originals and Option B with Sheryl Sandberg
