Joining hosts Dennis McCuistion and Jim Falk once again is Dr. George Friedman, author of The Storm Before the Calm; America’s Discord, The Coming Crisis of the 2020s, The Triumph Beyond, and The Next 100 Years.
|George Friedman discusses The Storm Before the Calm|
Dr. Friedman talks about the present American political and economic discord, predicting that the 2020s “will bring dramatic upheaval and reshaping of American government, foreign policy, economics, and culture.”
The unprecedented way in which America was created from a position of a weak colony subservient to a despot to its somewhat global power, in the last several years is a huge endeavor.
He describes two geo-political cycles; the institutional one which occurs every 80 years and the socio-economic cycle which occurs every 50 years and which led to the formation of various classes from the industrial age, the middle class, and now a technocrat class.

The two cycles are now converging for the first time in history. This will lead to an unprecedented seismic change in every area of American life, from government to education to our place on the world stage.
The result could lead to a stronger United States.
Tune in to hear from our most respected geo-political scientists today about what is in store for Americans.
