- Eye Opening
So much for US domestic politics as a model of orderly transitions of power. As the fraught 2020 election approaches, the United States itself poses the gravest threat to worldwide tranquility, at least in the estimation of Eurasia Group. The authors see real potential for a disputed presidential election – the results of which could prove globally destabilizing. They also fret about risks posed by the increasingly difficult relationship between the United States and China, and by Europe’s potentially more outspoken role in world affairs.
