Nov 6, 2018 MarketWatch – Opinion: This hated, conflicted, dishonest U.S. president would have a good laugh over the midterm elections
It is not the evil that you do because you are wicked that is the worst thing; it is the evil that you do because you are good, and that you must do to achieve the good. That haunted Lincoln, and it haunts any nation, especially my own. – George Friedman

Nov 5, 2018 Real Clear World – A State of Enduring Division in the U.S.
The only thing Americans seem to agree on today is that something is rotten in the state of their Union. Everything goes off the rails as soon as Americans start discussing what it is and how to fix it – but that something is horribly wrong no one denies. – Jacob L. Shapiro

India’s internal pressures and geographic isolation have long kept its government focused primarily on the affairs of the subcontinent.

Central America and the Caribbean have found themselves in an exceptional position lately.

If or when Yemen’s civil war draws to a close, another one may well be waiting. Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates have different end games in mind, despite fighting in the same coalition against the Iranian-sponsored Houtis.

Oct 17, 2018 The Trumpet – Is the Global Economy About to Crash?
“’Alarmist as that may sound, it’s worth keeping in mind that all the major geopolitical processes we’ve been tracking for the past several years have occurred in a time of relative economic stability. It won’t last forever,’ wrote Geopolitical Futures. ‘When money gets tight, geopolitical fault lines are more likely to rupture.’”

Oct 11, 2018 War on the Rocks – Trump and the End of Smugness
“In 2017, I hosted a podcast with George Friedman, who described the post-World War II system as a ‘freak’ and predicted that the world is returning to ‘a more normal structure in which the nation-state is dominant, international trade is intense but managed by states for their own benefit, and where this idea that the nation-state is obsolete goes away.'”

Sept 12, 2018 Real Clear World – Why Idlib Matters
The province of Idlib is in the northwestern part of Syria, near the Mediterranean Sea and the border with Turkey. Ordinarily, the world ought to have little interest in who controls it. But in geopolitics, sometimes the smallest and most obscure places generate the most concern among major powers – and Idlib is doing just that. – George Friedman


Sept 8, 2018 MacroGeo – Idlib, the Latest Frontline in the Syrian Civil War
After seven years of conflict, the future of the Syrian civil war may come down to the battle for Idlib. Syrian leader Bashar Assad has already taken back control of much of the country, and this northwestern province is the last remaining rebel stronghold. – Xander Snyder

Aug 30, 2018 Real Clear World – Serbia, Kosovo and the Prospect of Partition

Aug 28, 2018 Real Clear World – Poland’s Population Problem
Like all European countries, Poland’s shrinking population poses a major challenge to its long run of prosperity. For decades now, the country has seen falling fertility rates and unsustainable emigration levels. How Poland responds to this challenge will go a long way in determining the future economic well-being and security of Poland as an independent state. – Jacob L. Shapiro

Aug 24, 2018 Real Clear World – In Morocco, a Draft to Dodge Radicalization
Morocco has shown its support for Washington’s anti-Iran efforts by backing U.S. sanctions and warning local financial institutions and businesses not to engage in trade with Iran. Diplomatic sources told Assabah that this anti-Iran bloc would also include the Gulf states, Jordan and Egypt, giving it a reach beyond the Middle East and into North Africa. – Allison Fedirka


Aug 23, 2018 MarketWatch – Massive U.S. dollar-denominated debt is a ‘ticking time bomb’
What do the Turkish lira, the Iranian rial, the Russian ruble, the Indian rupee, the Argentine peso, the Chilean peso, the Chinese yuan and the South African rand all have in common? They’ve all declined steadily this year, and some have depreciated dramatically in recent weeks. – Jacob L. Shapiro

Aug 21, 2018 Financial Mirror – Massive U.S. dollar-denominated debt is a ‘ticking time bomb’
On Monday, the US-based political think tank Geopolitical Futures said in its daily memo that “the Turkish lira is not out of the woods yet. “Off of downgrades to Turkey’s foreign currency sovereign credit rating by Standard & Poor’s and its long-term issuer rates by Moody’s, the lira was down 1.5% to about 6 on the dollar in trading on Monday. It’s better than the lows of last week, but it’s also a confirmation that the central bank’s efforts to allay the concerns of the market are not yet working.”
