Dr John Hulsman: US problems now at the centre of global political risk calculations

We’ve been chatting to John Hulsman, the leading geo-political risk analyst and speaker. John’s recently been talking to audiences and clients in Delhi, London and Zurich and “for the first time American economic and political problems were front and centre in terms of risk questions (both short term like the fiscal cliff and longer term like debt sustainability), with Iran, China, and Europe being secondary.” John was struck by this unanimity, and the abrupt shift in the assessment of where primary risk lies which it represents. “It means the whole unquestioned basic stability of the world we have taken for granted for decades has now to be questioned.” To find out more about John, or to book him for your event programme, contact Alex Hickman at alexh@chartwellpartners.co.uk.
