Without the big picture,
the details don’t make sense.


A recent Gallup poll found that 62 percent of Americans think the news media favors a political party.


Every day the media produces an overwhelming amount of material, projected through the biases of whatever interests pay their bills.

A recent Gallup poll found that 62 percent of Americans think the news media favors a political party. If you’re in that 62 percent, you feel increasingly frustrated searching for the truth. It’s impossible to understand complex geopolitical problems and make informed decisions if the news you get is spun to serve someone else’s interests.

Let’s face it – major media outlets need reader clicks and eyeballs. They get those clicks through worry-inducing headlines. Their bottom line is your anxiety.

But you don’t have to worry any longer – you’ve got a solution at hand.

New York Times bestselling author and renowned thought leader George Friedman founded Geopolitical Futures to disrupt the conversation about international news. This industry has been overrun with so-called experts and media outlets that only give you the “what” without the “why.”

Highly sought after by government and military officials, academics, media, and long-time readers, our annual forecast gets you pointed in the right direction, for the coming year and beyond.

The World in 2018

Subscribe today and know, with certainty, what is coming in 2018. With Geopolitical Futures, you’ll replace confusion with clarity and worry with confidence.

We’ll give you the tools you need to take on the world every day.

You can rely on our trusted track record

This model led us to forecast chaos in the European Union, Russia’s military forays into Ukraine and Georgia, China’s economic slowdown and more – while mainstream media was still touting the grand European project, Russia’s warming relations with the West and China’s miracle growth.

But by now that’s all old news. You can get ahead of the curve and see what’s going to happen with our 2018 forecast.

Find out:

  • What the United States’ social and political gridlock means for its foreign policy
  • What will happen as China tackles its structural economic problems
  • How Middle Eastern powers will take advantage of the Islamic State’s defeat
  • Which European countries have the most potential to further weaken the EU
  • What Russia will have to do to ensure political stability
  • How India will capitalize on a rare moment of national unity
  • Which events will drive change in South America
  • And for all of these issues – why

Here’s how it works

We start by holding ourselves accountable and reviewing how we did in our 2017 forecast. This is important to us for two reasons. First, because it’s impossible to imagine the future without understanding the history. And second, because there can be no truth without transparency.

Only after that can we accurately analyze global trends and international actors’ capabilities and intentions to forecast the future of the world in 2018. This rigorous approach is why you can feel confident in our predictions and use them to navigate your business, investing and personal decisions throughout the year.

The 2018 forecast is available now, and we want to get it into your hands as soon as possible.

This may seem like we’re giving away a lot for only $139, but it’s because our real goal is to form a community.

Though George and our analysts have long track records, Geopolitical Futures is still in the early days of realizing our goal to fortify civil discourse. In George’s words:

My goal was to reach citizens who cared about how the world worked but were being excluded from the conversation by experts who wrote only for each other.

In doing this they were appropriating foreign policy for themselves and undermining democracy.

If foreign policy belonged to a cadre of experts and the educated public wasn’t smart enough to understand the issues, then the public was excluded from the discussion of war and peace. And that was catastrophic.

George Friedman

So far we have been incredibly lucky to have an engaged readership who let us know what they think. Some tell us how their subscription affects their daily lives, like Paul M. from New York:

I read every single piece that is produced. Some of them, particularly the pieces about the many issues facing Europe, have helped my trading.

All of them are interesting and insightful. I often share pieces with my high school-aged son as an example of excellent analysis and writing.

Others challenge us and keep us honest – a small selection of their comments can be found on our Letters to GPF page. We always appreciate and encourage these thoughtful questions.
