Inhaltsangabe

George Friedman, founder of Stratfor, has become a leading expert in geopolitical forecasting, sought after for his thoughtful assessments of current trends and near-future events.

In The Next 100 Years, Friedman turns his eye on the future. Drawing on a profound understanding of history and geopolitical patterns dating back to the Roman Empire, he shows that we are now, for the first time in half a millennium, experiencing the dawn of a new historical cycle.

Kritikerstimmen

"A unique combination of cold-eyed realism and boldly confident fortune-telling....Whether all of the visions in Friedman's crystal ball actually materialize, they certainly make for engrossing entertainment." ( Publishers Weekly)

Already outdated

It speaks to the impossibility of the task to predict 100 years into the future that many of the predictions are already outdated a mere 10 years later. Handwaving away Russia and especially China is almost criminal, as well as saying climate change will take care of itself (by 2050 we will be well into climate change). no mention of AI, Homo Deus etc. Not even considering the fall of nation States and thinking that "land"will still hold the highest importance, instead of cyber space. No hacker attacks as a military strategy by otherwise smaller States and the possible end of senecens is also just a "wild card" to this book.
It is an interesting take on things but shouldn't be taken as more than science fiction in a weird format.
