Evolving Geopolitical Risk in the Age of Trump

Geopolitical risk became a trending topic over the past year, but in reality, this trend has been unfolding for decades. Where some saw a peaceful future at the end of the Cold War and collapse of the Soviet Union, others recognized the instability this inevitable imbalance of global power would cause.
