The Next 100 Years

“Predictions have made George Friedman a hot property these days.” –The Wall Street Journal

In The Next 100 Years, George Friedman offers a lucid, highly readable forecast of the changes we can expect around the world during the twenty-first century. He explains where and why future wars will erupt (and how they will be fought), which nations will gain and lose economic and political power, and how new technologies and cultural trends will alter the way we live in the new century.

Drawing on history and geopolitical patterns dating back hundreds of years. Friedman shows that we are now, for the first time in half a millennium, at the dawn of a new era – with changes in store, including:

• The US–Jihadist war will conclude – replaced by a second full-blown cold war with Russia.
• China will undergo a major extended internal crisis, and Mexico will emerge as an important world power.
• A new global war will unfold toward the middle of the century between the United States and an unexpected coalition from Eastern Europe, Eurasia and the Far East; but armies will be much smaller and wars will be less deadly.
• Technology will focus on space – both for major military uses and for a dramatic new energy resource that will have radical environmental implications.

Written with the keen insight and thoughtful analysis that has made George Friedman a renowned expert in geopolitics and forecasting, The Next 100 Years presents a fascinating picture of what lies ahead.

Geopolitics and economics both assume that the players are rational, at least in the sense of knowing their own short-term self-interest.
If the forecasting on technology had been combined with the forecasting on geopolitics, the shattering of Europe might well have been predicted.
The United States doesn’t need to win wars. It needs to simply disrupt things so the other side can’t build up sufficient strength to challenge it.
