“Many analysts believe that the international system is sliding towards multi-polarity, a world in which no single great power is in a position to dominate its peers. But among those who subscribe to this view, there is some debate over just how the coming multi-polar order will operate.”
~ Peter Harris
By Catherine Austin Fitts
Saker joins us this week for his quarterly briefing on global geopolitics and the “emerging multi-polar world.” Indeed, the first part of our discussion focuses on the differences between a uni-polar world (the one we’ve been living in until very recently) and a multi-polar world — and what these differences will mean to you and me.
We have plenty to talk about: from events in Syria, Iran and the Middle East to the risks that Brexit and immigration pose to the European Union. Saker explains why he feels that the European Union will not be able to survive the coming storm. We also talk about the impact of the US presidential campaign on allies and enemies and the likelihood that the current covert war with Russia will turn overt following a change in the US Administration.
In anticipation of our discussion I have reviewed Saker’s new book, a marvelous collection of his posts entitled The Essential Saker: From the Trenches of the Emerging Multi-Polar World (see my book review here).
Those of you who seek to understand the flow of events in Russia and Eastern Europe will find this week’s interview a rich and fascinating contribution.
In Let’s Go to the Movies, I will review the The Big Short, the very misleading but enormously entertaining movie about the 2006 dump of the US mortgage and housing markets.
