The Trade Alliance is pleased to host Ian Bremmer, President of Eurasia Group, for a discussion on global political risk. At hand are several important issues, including China’s slowing economy and leadership changes, continued uncertainty in the European Union and what all of this means for the US and Washington state.

Eurasia Group is the leading global political risk research and consulting firm. The group specializes in providing financial, corporate and government clients with information and insight on how political developments move markets.

“Bremmer created Wall Street’s first global political risk index, and has authored several books including national bestsellers Every Nation for Itself: Winners and Losers in a G-Zero World and The End of the Free Market: Who Wins the War Between States and Corporations?”

He is a contributor for the Financial Times A-List and Reuters.com, writes “The Call” blog onForeignPolicy.com, and has published articles in the Wall Street Journal, the Washington Post, the New York Times, Newsweek, Harvard Business Review, and Foreign Affairs.
