Every Nation For Itself

Will we ever live in a world without a dominant country?

In a May 10, 2012, RSA Events Audio podcast, Ian Bremmer discusses his ideas about a "G-zero world," in which no one country will exert control over all other others.  These ideas are from his most recent book, Every Nation for Itself: Winners and Losers in a G-Zero World.  His books include The End of the Free Market: Who Wins the War Between States and Corporations? and The J Curve: A New Way to Understand Why Nations Rise and Fall and many others.  Bremmer is founder of the Eurasia Group, a political risk research and consulting firm.  I've heard him speak before in other RSA podcasts, The End of the Free Market and The Fat TailInteresting fellow.  I think I'll have to get a copy of his book.
