Publisher's Summary

Forecast geopolitics and markets with this clear and insightful resource

Geopolitical Alpha: An Investment Framework for Predicting the Future provides listeners with an original and compelling approach to forecasting the future and beating the markets while doing so. Persuasively written by author, investment strategist, and geopolitical analyst Marko Papic, the book applies a novel framework for making sense of the cacophony of geopolitical risks with the eye toward generating investment-relevant insights.

Geopolitical Alpha posits that investors should ignore the media-hyped narratives, insights from "smoke-filled rooms", and most of their political consultants, and instead focus exclusively on the measurable, material constraints facing policymakers. In the tug-of-war between policymaker preferences and their constraints, the latter always win out in the end. Papic uses a wealth of examples from the past decade to illustrate how one can use his constraint-framework to generate Geopolitical Alpha. In the process, the book discusses:

  • What paradigm shifts will drive investment returns over the next decade
  • Why investment and corporate professionals can no longer treat geopolitics as an exogenous risk
  • How to ignore the media and focus on what drives market narratives that generate returns

Perfect for investors, C-suite executives, and investment professionals, Geopolitical Alpha belongs on the shelf of anyone interested in the intersection of geopolitics, economics, and finance.

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying PDF will be available in your Audible Library along with the audio.

Better in print and needs to be shorter

I found my way to this book via Grant Williams and I’ll certainly apply the constraints (not being subject to preferences) however I found myself referring to charts and images so often that I believe this would be better in print.

Further, there was some waffle and repetition and would have preferred that time used to demonstrate more examples of practical application.

Great useful info, phenomenal narrator, “unbiased author” leans very obviously to the left.

Useful info and a great story, but the not so subtle digs made to the Republican Party throughout the book made it somewhat annoying to hear every 20 minutes or so. Regardless of the chapter subject matter.
