What is the New World Order?
« on: November 08, 2016, 09:57:19 PM »
I don't see a path for Hillary to win the election, so I'm going to ask what everyone thinks the global balance of power will look like in one year's time during a Trump presidency.

For me, I see Trump looking to become more friendly to Russia, India and be neutral to Europe from a trade/military front, and isolate Latin America and the Middle East. China and Japan are the wild cards from what I see, since I think Trump wants to thaw any military tension with China while trying to reduce America's dependency on the region from a trade perspective.

What are your thoughts?

Russia takes over Baltics (if not more). NATO collapses. EU probably collapses too.

There was a Bloomberg article about global elite buying houses/land/resident-permits in NZ last couple years. Apparently pretty good hedge so far if you have 10-20M+. House/land prices already gone ballistic, probably will go even more now.

Crap, I had NZ idea when Lord of the Rings came out... did nothing... coulda/shoulda/doesn't count.  8)

I don't believe he's intelligent enough to navigate the landscape.

Nor is he humble enough to surround himself with those who are.

I predict more golf courses with seriously discounted values on city/county tax rolls...
Healthcare 25.2% - CVS EW NVO // BRK.B - 23.1% // Auto's & Oil 14.8% - CLB GPC VDE

Media & Communication 8.4% - CHTR DIS // Banking 6.6% - WFC // Drinkers & Smokers 5.5% - MO

Tech 0.0%

%'s held @ MV 08/15/2019 minus 16.6% investable cash

I guess you foresee Russia and US sharing influence on Europe, then...

Nope. US giving up on Europe.

This is a great time to make some more forecasts, we all know how great those have been. And what could be easier to foresee than geopolitics. Just ask the former secretary of state.
