The Trade Alliance is pleased to host Ian Bremmer, President of Eurasia Group, for a discussion on global political risk. Whether it’s China’s slowing economy and leadership changes, continued uncertainty in the EU or the fiscal cliff, politics are coming to dominate market outcomes. This was especially true in the case of the financial crisis, when government action was called for and global markets moved to price in the uncertainty that ensued. With the rise of emerging markets around the world  – “those countries where politics matters at least as much as economics to market outcomes” – it is more true now than ever before.

Eurasia Group is the leading global political risk research and consulting firm. The group specializes in providing financial, corporate and government clients with information and insight on how political developments move markets.

Ian Bremmer created Wall Street’s first global political risk index, and has authored several books including 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 contributor for the Financial Times A-List and, writes “The Call” blog on, and has published articles in the Wall Street Journal, the Washington Post, the New York Times, Newsweek, Harvard Business Review, and Foreign Affairs. He appears regularly on CNBC, Fox News Channel, National Public Radio, and other networks.
