The unifying demonstrations against terrorism in Europe, changing monetary values and Russia's strategies in crisis have all drawn worldwide attention but as those storms rage, consider that it may be nothing unexpected in the world of George Friedman, founder and chairman of Austin-based Stratfor Global Intelligence.

He has long had an understanding of the dynamics of Europe. In the wake of the current disruptions, he'll speak to the Council on March 17. His topic? Timely. It's "Flash Points: The Emerging Crisis in Europe." Get your tickets today for this very special presentation in the Council's Focus on Intelligence Series.

Friedman also keeps an eye on China's economy and how falling oil prices could mean a change in Russian leadership, i.e., an end to Vladimir Putin's reign. Dallas Morning News Business Columnist Cheryl Hall has a sweeping report on Friedman's perspective from a November appearance in Dallas.

In Friedman's assessment of Europe, unemployment, racism, immigration and war all become characters fueled by the continent's violent past. The author's New York Times best-sellers include his 2009 book The Next 100 Years: A Forecast for the 21st Century and, in 2010, The Next Decade: What The World Will Look Like. In 1996, he founded Strategic Forecasting Inc., now known as Stratfor, as a publishing/global intelligence firm. Friedman and his associates at Stratfor are frequently called upon by organizations, government officials, other nations and media to authoritatively discuss international developments.
