Russian, Middle Eastern and Asian conflicts are about to trigger the greatest energy crisis in history. Dozens of countries are slipping into deflationary spirals from which there is little hope of escape. And America’s swerving into demagogic populism will unhinge its entire alliance network. The world as we know it is in its final days. Find out how and why it all came to be and how and why it is all falling apart. But most of all find out how the world’s end heralds the greatest expansion in American power and security in history.

Geopolitical strategist and global energy, demographic and security expert Peter Zeihan will keynote the opening general session.

Zeihan’s worldview marries the realities of geography and populations to a deep understanding of how global politics impact markets and economic trends, and he helps industry leaders navigate today’s complex mix of geopolitical risks and opportunities. With a keen eye toward what will drive tomorrow’s headlines, his irreverent approach transforms topics that are normally dense and heavy into accessible, relevant takeaways for audiences of all types.
