Ian Bremmer Speaker Biography

Ian Bremmer is the president and founder of Eurasia Group, the leading global political risk research and consulting firm. He is a prolific thought leader and author, regularly expressing his views on political issues in public speeches, television appearances, and top publications. Dubbed the “rising guru” in the field of political risk by The Economist, he teaches classes on the discipline as Global Research Professor at New York University.  His latest book focuses on the future of America’s role in the world and will hit shelves in May 2015.

In 1998, Bremmer established Eurasia Group with just $25,000. Today, the company has offices in New York, Washington and London, as well as a network of experts and resources in 90 countries. Eurasia Group provides analysis and expertise on how political developments and national security dynamics move markets and shape investments across the globe. As the firm’s president and most active public voice, Bremmer advises leading executives, money managers, diplomats and heads of state.  

Bremmer is credited with bringing the craft of political risk to financial markets—he created 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 matter 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. Said Larry Summers, “Global political economy has no sharper or more prescient analyst than Ian Bremmer.”  

Bremmer actively discusses the intersection between politics and markets in speeches and the media. He has published nine books including the national bestsellers Every Nation for Itself: Winners and Losers in a G-Zero World and The End of the Free Market: Who Wins the War Between States and Corporations? He is a regular columnist for Reuters and the Financial Times A-List, and has written hundreds of articles for many leading publications.  He appears regularly on CNBC, Fox, Bloomberg, CNN, the BBC, and other networks.

Bremmer earned a PhD in political science from Stanford University in 1994 and was the youngest-ever national fellow at the Hoover Institution. In 2007, Bremmer was named a Young Global Leader of the World Economic Forum, where he is the founding chairman of the Global Agenda Council on Geopolitical Risk.  He is a Senior Fellow at the World Policy Institute and serves on the President’s Council of the Near East Foundation, the Leadership Council for Concordia and the Board of Trustees of Intelligence Squared.

Bremmer grew up in Boston and currently lives in New York and Washington.

The New Abnormal: Who Are The Winners & Losers In A G-Zero World? We have entered a period of heightened geopolitical and market volatility, what Ian Bremmer calls the “New Abnormal.”  In the past few years, we’ve seen a financial crisis, a global recession, the Eurozone crisis, and the Arab Spring. All of this comes against the backdrop of a G-Zero world—an environment where no country or group of countries is willing and able to sustainably set the international agenda. This lack of global leadership will ensure that the ride gets even bumpier before the turbulence subsides. This 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.

Related Speech Topics:

  • How the US energy revolution will add to the uncertainty by giving the US less incentive to remain involved in the Middle East and by creating new sets of economic winners and losers

  • How to understand what comes next for the global economy, and why the key variable to watch is the state of US-Chinese relations

  • 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

The Rise of The Different: Why The Global Order Doesn’t Work & What We Can Do About It. Today, the American-led global order faces a fundamental challenge. It is not, however, the rise of the “rest.” It’s the rise of the “different.” Rising emerging market nations are inherently less stable. What does this mean for the global order? 

Related Speech Topics:

  • Geopolitical conflict at large, from Euro-crisis and US elections to Arab Spring and Asian power politics

  • The best bets for US-led initiatives going forward

  • The future of US-China relations

  • The shifting balance between security and economics

  • New investment strategies and the power of resilience

  • China, India & Beyond: The opportunities and pitfalls of Asian Growth

The End of The Free Market: Who Wins The War Between States & 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.

Related Speech Topics:

  • The rise of state capitalism

  • Why it exists and how it works

  • The threat to free market capitalism

  • The various forms of state capitalism in China, Russia, the Arab monarchies of the Persian Gulf and Others: How they’re using markets to create wealth that can be directed toward the achievement of political goals

The Fat Tail: The Power of Political Knowledge For Strategic Investing. The fallout from the still-unfolding global financial crisis provides several perfect examples of "fat tail" risk, those that flow from the low-probability, high-impact events that generate upheaval more often than we think. An understanding of the political dynamics generated by the financial crisis helps us forecast market risks, why politics matters more than ever for market performance, why the world's wealthiest countries have begun to behave like emerging market states, and what all this means for investors and companies.

Related Speech Topics:

  • The risks that flow from low-probability, high-impact events like the global financial crisis

  • Why politics matter more for the performance of markets and for issues ranging from defaults to nationalization to regulatory reforms

  • Why developed states are behaving more like emerging markets

  • The shift from New York, Shanghai, and Mumbai to Washington, Beijing, and Delhi—and the risks that this trend creates

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

Additional Topics:

  • Vaccine nationalization and global health security
  • European leadership
  • Geopolitics of climate change
  • Geopolitics and technology, cyber security
  • Latin American, Brazil geopolitics
  • Unwinding of globalization (tech, labor, supply chains)
