Ian Bremmer’s Quick Take:
Hi everybody. Ian Bremmer here. A Quick Take for you and my Ted Talk has just landed. So yes, that is what I want to talk about. Kind of, what happens after the GZERO? Who is the next global superpower? Do the Americans come back? Is it the Chinese century? No, it’s none of the above. We don’t have superpowers anymore. And that’s what the talk is all about.
I think that the geopolitical landscape today unnerves people because there’s so much conflict, there’s so much instability. People see that the trajectory of US-China relations, of war in Europe, of the state of democracy and globalization, all is heading in ways that seem both negative and unsustainable. And part of the reason for that is because it is not geopolitics as usual. It’s not the Soviets or the Americans or the Chinese that are driving outcomes in the geopolitical space. Rather it is breaking up into different global orders depending on the type of power we’re talking about.
There’s a security order of course, and people that think that international institutions and governance doesn’t work anymore, aren’t focusing on hard security cause NATO is expanding, and getting stronger, and involving not just the Nordics, but also the Japanese, and the South Koreans, and the Australians. The Americans are building out the Quad and they’re building out AUKUS, in part because of growing consensus on Russia among the advanced industrial democracies, growing concerns about China. But then also you have at the same time that the US-led national security institutions are getting stronger, the global economic architecture is fragmenting and it’s becoming more competitive. And the Europeans are driving some rules, and the Chinese are driving others, and the Americans are driving others. No one’s really happy about that, and it’s becoming less efficient, and that’s because it’s a multilateral economic order at the same time as it’s a unilateral unipolar security order.
And those are two things that we kind of feel right now, and it’s not super comfortable. It’s not super stable. The pieces move and they rub up against each other. The Americans trying to have more dominance in certain areas of the economy. When you can make it about national security, like if you talk about critical minerals and transition energy economies or semiconductors, for example, you see all that investment moving away from Taiwan and towards the US, the Netherlands, Japan, other countries. And you can see other areas where the Chinese have more influence in commercial ties and are getting more diplomacy oriented towards them in the Global South, for example, in the BRICS, and now France saying they want to go to BRICS meeting and that’s not about national security, that’s about economic integration. So these things, they’re like tectonic plates and they don’t align comfortably. And when they don’t and when they move, sometimes you get an earthquake, sometimes you get a tsunami.
