Here’s Some Suggested Reading

If you are at all interested in international geopolitics and predictions for the future, check out George Friedman’s The Next 100 Years: A Forecast for the 21st Century.  I am a notoriously slow-reader, but I just purchased this book a few days ago, and I’ve already read over 200 pages.  It’s quite interesting and it gives an interesting insight into geopolitics for not only the future but also for today and the past.

I highly recommend this book.

From one of our most incisive futurists, a fascinating, eye-opening, and often shocking look at what lies ahead for the United States and the world.

In his thought provoking new book, George Friedman, founder of STRATFOR—the preeminent private intelligence and forecasting firm—focuses on what he knows best, the future.  Positing that civilization is at the dawn of a new era, he offers a lucid, highly readable forecast of the changes we can expect around the world during the twenty-first century, all based on his own thorough analysis and research.  For example, the U.S.-Jihadist war will be replaced by a new cold war with Russia; China’s role as a world power will diminish; Mexico will become an important force on the geopolitical stage; and new technologies and cultural trends will radically alter the way we live (and fight wars).  Riveting reading from first to last, The Next 100 Years is a fascinating exploration of what the future holds forall of us.”—The back cover
