A dedicated intellectual entrepreneur, Ian Bremmer is the president of Eurasia Group, the leading global political risk research and consulting firm. Bremmer's career spans academic, investment, and policymaking communities, with a focus on global macro-political trends and emerging markets in which "politics matter at least as much as economics for market outcomes." Bremmer's work to define the business of politics has accordingly focused on making political science relevant to the global marketplace.
Bremmer created Wall Street's first global political risk index, a ground-breaking methodology leveraging political science to assess investment risk. He is also the author of several bestselling books including The End of the Free Market: Who Wins the War Between States and Corporations, and The J Curve: A New Way to Understand Why Nations Rise and Fall, selected by The Economist as one of the best books of 2006.
