Near the end Zeihan recommends one of my favorite books, Guns, Germs, and Steel by Jared Diamond.
I agree with Zeihan in that the American economy and the US$ will be fine. He also gives some investing suggestions for the coming transition.
Peter Zeihan is a geopolitical strategist and the author of four books, including most recently, The End of the World is Just the Beginning. In this episode, Peter talks about the civil unrest – and pending demographic collapse – in China, why “Apple has refused to see the writing on the wall” in China, Mexico as America’s most important trading partner, why he is investing in commodities, and why – despite the unraveling now underway in many parts of the world – he believes “the American system will thrive.” (Recorded December 2, 2022.)
