George Friedman: FLASHPOINTS - Geopolitical Hot Spots Around The World
The world has always had “flashpoints,” hot spots where clashes over politics boil over. These conflicts can be momentary or can lead to war that ultimately engulf regions. Author and political scientist George Friedman has made a career out of forecasting what the future holds in terms of power and conflict around the globe. His 2009 book made predictions for the next 100 years and he shares some of those predictions and how they might affect us.
George Friedman is in Charlotte under the auspices of the World Affairs Council of Charlotte to speak at the Charlotte City Club, Thursday at noon. Details.
