There are plenty of forecasts out there, but today I send you one you can trust. Stratfor, a geopolitical analysis company, has one of the most rigorous methodologies out there, and their forecasts provide excellent insight into the outcome of world events in the coming quarter.
Europe, Syria, and China are the big three to watch the next three to six months. But if you are looking for a much longer forecast, Stratfor's founder – and my friend – George Friedman has boldly written one for the entire century. Stratfor is offering a complimentary copy of George's bestseller, The Next 100 Years, to <<OTB readers who subscribe here>>. I highly recommend a subscription to their daily, forward-looking analysis of geopolitics – and the book.
