Speech Topics

We are now living in a leaderless world. Current geopolitical tensions and conflicts can be attributed to three things: 1) Russia’s lack of integration into Western institutions 2) China’s integration into US-led institutions with the presumption that it would make the country more American (it didn’t) and 3) millions across the world feeling left behind by globalization.

What kind of order can we expect? There isn’t going to be one global system. Instead, there will be three world orders, separate but interconnected:

  • The Security order (unipolar) led by the US
  • The Economic order (multipolar) US, China, EU, Japan, India
  • The Digital order

Dr. Bremmer’s discussion touches upon…

  • Today, it’s not governments, but the big tech companies that set the rules in the digital world.
  • Social media platforms are already powering wars, spreading misinformation, promoting conspiracy theories, etc.
  • Today, questioning authority—challenging the world order—means questioning the algorithm.
  • How will technology companies use their power? 1) digital cold war? 2) globalized digital order? or 3) digital becomes dominant order?
  • The digital world order will soon matter much more than the others for how we live, what we believe, what we want, and what we’re willing to do to get it.

Bremmer addresses political, economic, social, and security developments in specific countries as well as explores various sectors and other areas of interest. Speech topics include:

  • The United States: A New Era of Political Risk
  • Europe: The End of Convergence
