Thank you Michael, inspiring insights especially for a person living in Poland. It is comforting that such discussions are also taking place here, especially in the aspect of geopolitics. I can't wait for the next episodes.

I enjoyed listening to this podcast very much. I studied politics at university and it reminds me of the conversations that would go on in the staffroom at the humanities / social science department between different lecturers. We seem to be entering a period of old world disorder and leaving behind the new world order. Or so it seems at any rate.

Found the discussion of pushing Russia and China together interesting, the two together could be extremely formidable as they each have many of things the other needs (natural resources one way, and manufacturing and technology the other) however I struggle to see that as a lasting partnership based upon each one’s need to internally and externally project their own strength and a shared history of mistrust. That isn’t to say for a period that it wouldn’t work but the WW2 corollary of the USSR & Germany seems to me to be apt. Interested to hear more on your thoughts on the Chinese/Russian relationship.

Finally was able to listen to this. Amazing conversation around extremely relevant topics. The dollar is a really powerful weapon and not having a coordinated team on how economic/monetary policy reverberates geopolitically across the globe is definitely a weak point of the US (and all of the West, I'd say - maybe the East is just as ignorant as well, I don't know). The PhDs in the Fed don't count as I think of them as intelligent ppl who are pretty much clueless of the "real" world and how their policies impact not just the domestic economy but the world at large.

Thoughtful article on how best to cultivate our network of treaty partners and allies, which will be a topic we explore in August on KAOS THEORY.

We have an Air Force, a Land Force (Army), a Sea Force (Navy), a Space Force, a Cyber Force.

Why not an Economic Force as well, especially when E is a critical part of the War College's DIME framework?
