Hot Spots and Blind Spots: A New Way for America to Look at the World

What’s happening in the world’s hot spots and where are things headed? What are people missing? Providing an overarching framework – the chessboard and the web – Dr. Slaughter describes the elements of a geopolitical analysis and the elements of a networks and flows analysis focusing on people, trade, energy, climate, and information technology. Political analysts tend to operate entirely on the chessboard while economic analysts tend toward the web. Both frameworks are necessary, she argues, when assessing global risks.
