Two words:Next Geopolitics

For more than a century, geopolitics has revolved around the same variables. These are: oil, natural gas, currency, defense and conflict. These variables have defined the trajectory and destiny of countries and regions.

Now, a new era of geopolitics is the horizon, led by new technologies such as artificial intelligence, robotics, gene editing and virtual reality, among others. I call this era Next Geopolitics, and it has the potential to change the future of countries and companies, the structure of the world and the hegemony of nations.

Here are the kinds of people who should be thinking about Next Geopolitics:
