Ian Bremmer
President, Eurasia Group

A dedicated intellectual entrepreneur, Ian Bremmer’s career spans the academic, investment, and policymaking communities. His analytical focus has been on global emerging markets—those countries where politics matter at least as much as economic fundamentals for market outcomes.

His research focuses on states in transition, global political risk, and US foreign policy. His books include the forthcoming The Fat Tail: The Power of Political Knowledge for Strategic Investing (with Preston Keat), and The J Curve: A New Way to Understand Why Nations Rise and Fall, selected by the Economist as one of the best books of 2006. Ian has published articles in the Harvard Business Review, Fortune, Newsweek, the Los Angeles Times, the Washington Post, the Financial Times, the Wall Street Journal, and the New York Times. He is a contributing editor at the National Interest, Foreign Policy, and Survival; and a political commentator on CNN, FoxNews, and CNBC.
