The Asian Century?

A GAME OF RISK

Ian Bremmer, Author and President, Eurasia Group

Download event audio.

Emerging markets, defined by Ian Bremmer as “countries where politics matter at least as much as economics for market outcomes,” continue to be attractive for businesses seeking alternative areas for growth. However, in developing nations - many of which are in the Asia-Pacific region - uncertainty and unrest can adversely affect both economic and political goals. Disputes in the East and South China seas, commodity scarcity, and the flow of information are some of the trends contributing to greater risk in the region. How are governments and businesses responding, and what are the implications for US policy in the region? Join Ian Bremmer for a discussion on Asia, and its role in the global risk environment.

Ian Bremmer is the president of Eurasia Group, a global political risk research and consulting firm. He created Wall Street’s first global political risk index (GPRI) and is the founding chairman of the World Economic Forum’s Global Agenda Council on Geopolitical Risk. Bremmer is a global research professor at New York University and has held faculty positions at Columbia University, the EastWest Institute, and the World Policy Institute. He is a contributor for the Financial Times A-List and Reuters.com. In 2007, he was named a Young Global Leader of the World Economic Forum. Bremmer has a PhD in political science from Stanford University and was the youngest-ever national fellow at the Hoover Institution. @ianbremmer
