Armies are on the march in Eastern Europe, globalization is coming apart at the seams, and international markets suddenly seem perilous places to be. Author Peter Zeihan joins Strategic Insights Group CEO Dee Smith for a wide-ranging discussion about the future of our rapidly changing world. As for the immediate term, Russia’s stumbles in Ukraine have given China pause in its planning for cross-strait unification with Taiwan, though food shortages caused by the invasion will soon wreak havoc on the world stage. When it comes to the long term, investors must prepare for a world of decoupled supply chains and painfully tightened liquidity. But, as Zeihan notes, there may be an upside. The U.S., he says, is uniquely positioned by geography and demographics to survive and thrive in this brave new world, and opportunities for growth abound. Recorded on April 22, 2022.
