Geopolitical Strategist Peter Zeihan is a global energy, demographic and security expert. His worldview marries the realities of geography and populations to provide a deep understanding of how global politics impacts markets and economic trends, to help industry leaders navigate today’s complex mix of geopolitical risks and opportunities. With a keen eye toward what will drive tomorrow’s headlines, his irreverent approach transforms topics that are normally dense and heavy into accessible, relevant takeaways for audiences of all types.
In his career, Zeihan has ranged from working for the US State Department in Australia, to the DC think tank community, to helping develop the analytical models for Stratfor, one of the world’s premier private intelligence companies.
Zeihan founded his own firm — Zeihan on Geopolitics — in 2012 in order to provide a select group of clients with direct, custom analytical products. His clients represent a vast array of sectors including energy majors, financial institutions, business associations, agricultural interests, universities and the US military.
His first book, The Accidental Superpower, published in 2014, forecasted the collapse of the global order. His newest book, The Absent Superpower: The Shale Revolution and a World Without America, highlights what comes next.
