Weekly Geopolitical Report – Bremmer’s Choices (August 31, 2015)

by Bill O’Grady

Last week, we wrote our first formal book review as a Weekly Geopolitical Report.  The book, Superpower: Three Choices for America’s Role in the World, is a recently published book by Ian Bremmer in which he discusses three models for American foreign policy.  In our closing comments last week, we promised to take a deeper look at Bremmer’s three foreign policy models to examine their costs and benefits.  In this report, we will analyze his three models of exercising the superpower role, Indispensable America, Independent America and Moneyball America.  From this analysis, we will discuss which model is the most likely choice.  As always, we will conclude with market ramifications.
