Who knew a guy obsessed with maps could reframe the entire way we understand world history and where we might be headed? Peter Zeihan’s that guy.
He recently showed up on Meb Faber’s podcast to talk about his upcoming book, what’s happening in the world, and what’s moving markets. This matters more than just reading headlines though.
If the two biggest themes of our modern era have been globalization and population growth, Zeihan explores what a transition to deglobalization and depopulation looks like, and explains how it’s underway right now.
He’s one of the most interesting big picture thinkers I know. If you like Yuval Noah Harari or Jarod Diamond, Zeihan belongs on that Mt. Rushmore.
