President of Eurasia Group and GZERO Media; Political Scientist, Author, Entrepreneur & Lecturer

REQUEST BOOKING INFORMATION

Ian Bremmer Biography

Ian Bremmer is a political scientist who helps business leaders, policy makers, and the general public make sense of the world around them. He is president and founder of Eurasia Group, the world's leading political risk research and consulting firm, and GZERO Media, a company dedicated to providing intelligent and engaging coverage of international affairs. Bremmer is an independent voice on critical issues around the globe, offering clearheaded insights through speeches, written commentary, and even satirical puppets (really!).

He is the host of "GZERO World with Ian Bremmer," which airs weekly on US national public television. Bremmer is also a frequent guest on CNN, Fox News, MSNBC, the BBC, Bloomberg, and many other television stations around the world.

Bremmer is credited with bringing the craft of political risk to financial markets, creating Wall Street's first global political risk index (GPRI), and for establishing political risk as an academic discipline. His definition of emerging markets—"those countries where politics matters at least as much as economics for market outcomes"—has become an industry standard. "G-Zero," his term for a global power vacuum in which no country is willing and able to set the international agenda, is widely accepted by policymakers and thought leaders.

A prolific writer, Bremmer is the author of ten books, including the New York Times bestseller “Us vs Them: The Failure of Globalism” which examines the rise of populism across the world. He also serves as the foreign affairs columnist and editor at large for Time magazine. He currently teaches at Columbia University's School of International and Public Affairs and previously was a professor at New York University.

Bremmer earned a master's degree and a doctorate in political science from Stanford University, where he went on to become the youngest-ever national fellow at the Hoover Institution. He received his bachelor's degree in international relations from Tulane University.

Bremmer established Eurasia Group with just $25,000 in 1998. Today, the company has offices in New York, Washington, San Francisco, London, Brasilia, Sao Paulo, Singapore, and Tokyo, as well as a network of experts and resources in 90 countries.

Speaking Topics
  • Superpower: Three Choices for America's Role in the World

    Global policy expert Ian Bremmer calls for a complete rethink of America’s role in tomorrow’s world. In an increasingly volatile international environment, the question has never been more important. Bremmer explores three choices, each with its own benefits and drawbacks:

    • “Independent America” argues that it’s time for Washington to declare independence from the responsibility to solve everyone else’s problems. Instead, America should lead by example by investing in America’s enormous untapped potential; -“Moneyball America” acknowledges that we can’t manage every international challenge but asserts that we must defend U.S. interests wherever they’re threatened. It looks beyond phony arguments about American exceptionalism with a clear-eyed assessment of U.S. strengths and limitations; and, -“Indispensable America” insists that only Washington can promote the values on which global stability increasingly depends in our hyper-connected world. Turning inward would threaten America’s security and prosperity.

  • China, India and Beyond: The Opportunities and Pitfalls of Asian Growth

    China bestrides the world as a colossus, and business leaders can't get enough from the promised riches of Asia. But does unprecedented growth mean that your company will benefit from it? Ian Bremmer, intellectual entrepreneur and President of Eurasia Group, explains the dangers of Asian growth for global investors seeking to build a presence in international markets; for companies seeking to sell their products there; and for the global markets more broadly.

    At this speech audiences will learn:

    -How to read the political and economic landscape in China, India, and beyond -How geopolitics is creating greater risks—and opportunities—for investors in Asia

  • The Politics of Global Energy

    Oil prices are increasingly susceptible to international politics--for both the world's supply and demand. Ian Bremmer, founder and president of the world's largest political risk consultancy, shares his views on what's in store for the politics of global energy--from spiralling Chinese and Indian growth in consumption to the dangers of future oil export from the Middle East, Russia and the Caspian, and West Africa.

    At this speech audiences will learn:

    -Why international politics matters to oil investors, financial institutions, and consumers alike

    -How to assess the real threats to oil production, and discount the headlines that don't matter

    -How a shift in global relations between the US and China will affect the global energy market

  • The End of the Free Market: Who Wins the War Between States and Corporations?

    A generation after communism’s collapse, the future of free market capitalism isn't what it used to be. Public wealth, public investment, and public ownership have made a stunning comeback. Certain that command economies are doomed to fail but afraid that truly free markets will spin beyond their control, the political leadership in China, Russia, the Arab monarchies of the Persian Gulf and other authoritarian states have invented a new system: state capitalism. Each in their own way, they’re using markets to create wealth that can be directed toward the achievement of political goals. Governments now dominate key domestic economic sectors. The oil companies they own control three-quarters of the world’s crude oil reserves. They use state-owned companies to manipulate entire economic sectors and industries. They own enormous investment funds that have become vitally important sources of capital for Western governments and banks weakened by financial crisis. An expert on the impact of politics on market performance, Ian Bremmer illustrates the rise of state capitalism and details its long-term threat to relations among nations and the future of the global economy.

    At this presentation audiences will learn about: -The rise of state capitalism -Why it exists and how it works -The threat to free market capitalism

  • Every Nation for Itself: Winners and Losers in a G-ZERO World

    At a time when so many challenges transcend borders, the need for international leadership has never been greater. Leaders have the leverage to coordinate multinational responses to transnational problems and the wealth and power to persuade other governments to take actions they wouldn’t otherwise take. They pick up the checks that others can’t afford and provide services no one else will pay for. But in years to come, there will be no global leadership, because there is now no single country or bloc of countries with the political and economic muscle to drive an international agenda. America is struggling to pay its bills, Europe is busy trying to save the eurozone, and emerging powers are wrestling with too many complex challenges at home to accept risks and burdens abroad. A world without leaders will undermine our ability over the next decade to keep the peace in Asia and the Middle East, to grow the global economy, to reverse the impact of climate change, to feed growing populations, and to protect the most basic of all necessities—air, food, and water. Its effects will be felt in every region of the world, even in cyberspace.

    Ian Bremmer, an expert on international politics and its impact on global markets, will detail the following:

    -The impact of a world without leadership on international politics and the global economy -Next challenges facing the United States, Europe and China -Asia’s evolving balance of power -The future of the Middle East -Winners and losers in a world without leaders -Crisis points• from food security to cyberspace -The global balance of power most likely to emerge from a G-Zero world

  • Managing Risk in an Unstable World

    To navigate globalization's choppy waters, every business leader analyzes economic risk when considering overseas investments or looking at market exposure. But do you look beyond reassuring data about per-capita income or economic growth--to assess the political risk of doing business in specific countries? If not, you may get blindsided when political forces shape markets in unexpected ways--from populist measures in advance of an election cycle to social unrest in many of the top emerging markets performers.

    Related speech topics:

    • How to spot political risk on the horizon and balance it against economic opportunities—and what it means for your global investments
    • How to understand the opportunities, and dangers, of dramatic Chinese growth
    • What are the trends around global terror, proliferation, and shifting geopolitics, and how it impacts global markets
    • The Politics of Global Energy:
    • How a “post-peak oil” scenario will threaten petro-states’ economies and core stability
    • How changing energy markets will shift the US’ global interests
