The United States will no longer play global policeman, and no one else wants the job. This is not a G-7 or a G-20 world. Welcome to the GZERO, a world made volatile by an intensifying international battle for power and influence. Every week on this podcast, Ian Bremmer will interview the world leaders and the thought leaders shaping our GZERO World.
Special edition: Can sustainable investing save our planet?
Benjamin Franklin famously called on American business leaders more than two centuries ago to “Do well by doing good.” To him, that meant creating companies that were not just about the bottom line, but also that helped foster happier and healthier communities. Now, as 2021 approaches and the world recovers from the greatest crisis of our lifetimes, sustainable investing is a bigger discussion than ever. How does it not only help the environment and societies but also build your bottom line?
What You Still May Not Know About Joe
Joe Biden has been a public figure for decades but he’s far from an open book. For a man who has been in national politics since the age of 29 and has made multiple attempts at the presidency (third time’s a charm) it’s remarkable how much he has been willing to change. In a conversation with Ian Bremmer, Biden biographer and New Yorker staff writer Evan Osnos provides a deep dive into the life, legacy and potential presidency of the next leader of the free world.
Special Edition: What to Expect from Joe Biden’s Presidency
It was an election for the history books in many ways, with record voter turnout during an unprecedented global health crisis. And while President-elect Biden emerged as the winner, he will undoubtedly face a deeply divided nation when he takes the oath of office. We examine what the election results mean to the US, the world, and your wallet. Moderated by Caitlin Dean, with Jon Lieber, Eurasia Group’s Managing Director for the US; and Candi Wolff, Head of Global Governmental Affairs at Citi.
Will NATO Adapt to Emerging Global Threats?
The world has changed significantly since the fall of the Berlin Wall. Has the intergovernmental military alliance of NATO—which was founded to counter the Soviet threat to the West—done enough to keep up with today's landscape of global threats? Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg joins Ian Bremmer to make the case for a modern, 21st century NATO - how the alliance is adapting to a variety of threats ranging from the rising influence of China to cyber warfare to the coronavirus pandemic.
COVID-19 and The Dark Winter to Come
The US election may be nearly over but the COVID-19 pandemic rages on. During the week of the election alone, the daily US case rate shattered the pandemic’s previous record, reaching well over 100,000. The grim milestone made it all too clear the biggest story of the year continues to be the coronavirus pandemic. Dr. Ashish Jha, Dean of The Brown University School of Public Health, joins Ian Bremmer to take stock of how things got so bad and how we can brace for the dark winter that awaits us.
Special Edition: Running on Fumes: The Future of Fossil Fuels

Moderator Caitlin Dean asks some geopolitical and economic experts--Luigi Pigorini, Head of Citi Private Bank in EMEA; Ed Morse, Global Head of Commodities Research, Citi; & Robert Johnston, Managing Director, Global Energy at Eurasia Group.

I listened to your recent interview? of Jared Kushner. You lobbed him more softball questions than at a Cinderella Softball game for kindergarteners. Are you really a shill for the Trump regime as you asked nothing of value. Just let Jared spout his missives without meaningful follow up questions. I am cancelling further downloads of you padded podcasts. Might as well watch Fox News
Kushner interview a joke.
Absolute puff piece with zero hard questions or fact checking. This isn’t journalism.
