International Strategist Peter Zeihan examines how the hard rules of geography are eroding the American commitment to free trade; how much of the planet is aging into mass retirement that will enervate markets and capital supplies; and how, against all odds, it is the ever ravenous American economy alone along the developed nations that is rapidly approaching energy independence. The Accidental Superpower also explores shale oil and its surprising key role in America's move towards energy independence and how it will shape (and is already shaping) American life for the next fifty years.
Peter addresses the following issues:
- Why China will never challenge U.S. economic dominance.
- How our internal waterways will save us from financial collapse.
- Why the Strait of Hormuz, once a position of leverage that Iran could use against the world, is still a pressure point--not just Iran's.
- How the Shale Oil boom will provide economic stability in a increasingly unstable world.
- What are the economic outcomes of the BRICS (Brazil, Russia, India, China and South Africa).
