George Friedman: The Man Behind The Curtain


Few people have as much influence over global events as George Friedman. Friedman, the founder and chairman of Geopolitical Futures, has been predicting and shaping world events for more than four decades.

What should I know about this?

Somewhat less well known than other famous forecasters like Nostradamus and the Oracle at Delphi, Friedman’s predictions are nonetheless thought to be just as accurate. Throughout history, his ability to correctly predict large-scale and small political events has earned him a reputation as “the man behind the curtain.” The Economist once called him “the modern-day Samuel Huntington,” after another famous geopolitical scholar who famously predicted the rise of Islamic terrorism in 1993. But unlike Huntington, Friedman is still very active on the world stage — constantly analyzing the geopolitical landscape and making predictions about what the future holds for us all.
