Today’s era—“The Second Age of Globalization”—is proving much more challenging than was thought a few years ago. Balances of power have been constantly shifting, resulting in new alliances. The U.S., China and Russia are taking on new roles in this shifting geopolitical world, as the entire world now deals with the consequences of the war on terrorism. The technological forces shaping our future have led to critical debates about what it means to live in the "24-hour interconnected, hyperactive, e-mail-fueled, and sleep-deprived world."  Meanwhile, a backlash continues to build against a world open to trade, investment, and communications, with energy as one of the most important forces changing the position of nations. Russia—flat on its back only a few years ago—is now an “energy superpower.” China and India are the rising great powers. And worries about energy security are now a political fact in the United States and Europe, amplified by climate change. Daniel Yergin takes on the question of overriding importance—how today’s positive global economic developments will interact with the negative and worrying geopolitical trends that are emerging out of the new geopolitics.
