Really, just why do nations rise and fall?

Yesterday, Mike Rosen interviewed Ian Bremmer of The Eurasia Group and author of The J Curve: A New Way to Understand Why Nations Rise and Fall. (Economist review here.) You can listen to the interview here. It’s about 40 minutes long. The last 10 minutes are devoted to a brief application of Bremmer’s ideas to our relations with China and Iran, and dealing with terrorism. (And yes, as a matter of fact, I do expect you to listen to the interview on my mere say-so.)

I need to get that book.
