The Leighton Smith Podcast: Measles and George Friedman on China

    69

    The Chinese have found themselves in trouble. The United States has been demanding that they open their markets. The Chinese can’t open their markets because they can’t stand the internal competition, so we’re are asking for something they can’t give us. – George Friedman via The Leighton Smith Podcast Full interview

    Why do our subscribers love us? Take it from them:

    I can't emphasize enough my appreciation for you and the rest of the staff at Geopolitical Futures. Over the past three years... I have had a lot of bad information and impoverished understanding corrected because of your analyses.

    Kevin G.

    Some times the politics and journalism of the world gets in the way of clear thinking (at my own peril). Your ability to provide perspective and context to the things that really matter are of high value.

    Geopolitical Futures
    Geopolitical Futures (GPF) was founded in 2015 by George Friedman, international strategist and author of The Storm Before the Calm and The Next 100 Years. GPF is non-ideological, analyzes the world and forecasts the future using geopolitics: political, economic, military and geographic dimensions at the foundation of a nation.
