The Archives From Real Vision ·
Featuring R.P. Eddy and Jawad Mian

Published on: November 1st, 2020 • Duration: 54 minutes

Former Presidential security advisor and diplomat, R.P. Eddy, enthralled Real Vision viewers in the ‘Travels with Jawad’ series, with his insights into the geopolitical risks of a Trump Presidency and the retraction of America's global responsibilities. Jawad Mian's full interview with R.P. is a potent discussion of US foreign policy and a fascinating portrait of the new power in the White House. Filmed on January 28, 2017 in Malibu.

    It is interesting that professors at universities, the news and financial media companies don't speak to the investment USA made to Pax Americana, the results of the investments and recognition of the civil servants - how 16 years of Bush/Obama...

    Very interesting interview in hindsight. And from where I sit, it's pretty clear that Trump has proven himself to be strategically incapable across most dimensions, specifically, patience, foreign policy, domestic policy, economics, science, etc. I'd love to see RP back for a follow up now. I'd be very curious about his scorecard evaluation of Trump's presidency + an analysis of the election results.

    The 'two cities trap' is an allusion to the Thucydides trap. There's a Steve Bannon/Kyle Bass interview on RV that addresses the question in depth. 30:30 "The United States obviously sells less to China than we buy from them. But it's not dramatically different in scale - the imbalance." Aren't the US buying good and services whereas the US is selling treasuries? The trade imbalance is smaller since the end of Chimerica but still a proper imbalance, hence the persistent, large, famous trade deficit.

    So insightful! Please tell me Real Vision is bringing R.P. Eddy back for a post mortem of the 1st (and maybe only) Trump admin?
