IAN BREMMER: If I'm Right, We're Headed For A Fractured World

Political risk strategist Ian Bremmer tells Business Insider that the most likely outcome of a period without politicial leadership is a world fractured along regional lines.

His new book, Every Nation for Itself: Winners and Losers in A G-Zero World, describes a current global paradigm in which American influence is fading without a new power stepping in to fill the void. He calls this world “G-Zero”—a troubling but unsustainable period of tense geo-political relationships and uncertain investments.

We spoke with him about the challenges and risks posed by this scary new world, and how the relationship between China and the U.S. will determine the power structure that comes next.
