Episode #116: The Brief: Will 2024 Be the Voldemort of Years? Exploring the Top Political Risks We Face in 2024

2024. The year that must not be named. The Voldemort of years.

After a generation of globalization, peace between major powers, economic integration, and stability, we find ourselves in 2024 in a new political, social, and economic world, and business leaders find themselves thinking about geopolitics more than at any time in recent history.

On today’s episode, we are taking things global. We’re joined by geopolitical experts from the Eurasia Group—Willis Sparks, Director, Global Macro, and Anna Ashton, Director, China Corporate Affairs and US-China—to talk about the top political risks facing us this year.

We’ve packed a lot into this episode, covering a vast range of topics: Russia-Ukraine, Israel-Hamas, US election, China, Canada and the US, energy markets, food, and much more!

In this episode:

  • About Anna and Willis
  • Risk: Russia vs. Ukraine
  • Risk: Israel vs. Hamas
  • Risk: China vs. US
  • Risk: US vs. Itself
  • Opportunity: Canada and US
  • Lightning Round: Energy Markets, Critical Minerals, and Food
