As founder of the Eurasia Group, Ian Bremmer straddles the globe in both his ambitions and clout. The Eurasia Group is regarded as one of the most influential organizations in the field of geopolitics. So what does the man who sits atop an organization which has captured the ears of some of the most powerful people on Earth do? Self-enrichment. The Eurasia Group charges customers immense sums of money for their advice and prognostication on the global state of affairs, but at least publicly, remains a neutral arbiter, willing to sell their advice to anyone with cash. Even Ian Bremmer’s attention grabbing, “China Won” piece in Time magazine, was a fair, well written piece once you moved past the bombastic headline.
However, if we venture past this facade of neutrality, and do some second order thinking, would we be able to ascertain he real impact of such an influential person? Let’s consider some of the following information: Ian Bremmer is part of the Asia Society Policy Institute, which is the Think Tank of the Asia Society. For those unacquainted, the Asia Society is a pro-globalization organization, which is currently co-chaired by Ronnie Chan, a Hong Kong billionaire who works with the CCP extensively. He is a member of the Council of Foreign Relations, another pro-globalization organization with some of the most powerful political leaders who also support China. He is the progenitor of the call for a World Data Organizartion, which would be an international organization to set internet and data standards in an effort to save Globalism. Alarmingly, this organization would be based off the World Trade Organization, which means Ian Bremmer has seen the ineptitude, dysfunction, and corruption of the WTO, and sees it as a model for future tasks. In short, Ian Bremmer is an influential globalist, who believes speaking out against China may be more costly than it is worth.
