For the first time in seven decades, there is no single power or alliance of powers ready to take on the challenges of global leadership. A generation ago, the United States, Europe, and Japan were the world’s powerhouses, the free-market democracies that propelled the global economy forward. Today, they struggle just to find their footing.
In Every Nation for Itself: Winners and Losers in a G-Zero World, acclaimed geopolitical analyst Ian Bremmer illustrates a historic shift in the international system and the world economy and an unprecedented moment of global uncertainty. The diverse political and economic values of the G20 have produced global gridlock. Now that so many challenges transcend borders — from the stability of the global economy and climate change to cyberattacks, terrorism, and the security of food and water — the need for international cooperation has never been greater. Dr. Bremmer will be joined in conversation with Orville Schell, Asia Society’s Arthur Ross Director of the Center on U.S.-China Relations, to discuss the risks and opportunities in a world without global leadership.
