The U.K. May Find That Getting to Brexit Was the Easy Part
Plenty of pundits have weighed in on the electoral implications of British Prime Minister Boris Johnson's recent landslide victory, but fewer have addressed its strategic implications for the United Kingdom's position in the world. In part, I suspect, this is because there are few obvious analogies for the political crisis Brexit has precipitated, and, without historical comparison cases, forecasting too easily becomes guesswork. There is, though, one suggestive parallel for what Britain is going through. Extrapolating possible futures from an isolated analogy is open to obvious objections; however, it is surely better than working without comparisons of any kind -- and it prompts some sobering thoughts.

The Future of Cryptocurrencies
More than 10 years since the first bitcoin transaction in January 2009, and almost two years since a speculative spike pushed the price per bitcoin to almost $20,000, cryptocurrencies are moving beyond cypherpunks and anti-government culture into the world of governments and traditional institutions. The transition is impossible to ignore. While some governments, central banks and financial companies see cryptocurrencies as a threat, others want to harness the advantages they offer. And some governments see cryptocurrencies as a way to save their own struggling economies. To understand whether nonsovereign currencies can serve as a default currency and what threat they pose to governments or how beneficial they might become, it's useful to examine some of the most interesting geopolitical and corporate use cases available.

Venezuela: The White House Broadens the Target Set for Sanctions
The United States, with national security adviser John Bolton, the principal architect of the White House’s strategy to force the Venezuelan president to step down, leading the charge, is doubling down on an economic coercion campaign with the intent of either compelling Nicolas Maduro to accept an exit deal to pave the way for an election or improve the conditions for a coup. The biggest question moving forward is how far the U.S. Treasury Department can and will go in enforcing a more expansive sanctions strategy against Venezuela. The countries foremost on the U.S. radar for their economic involvement with Venezuela include Russia, China, Cuba, Iran, Turkey and India.

Halford Mackinder's 1919 work Democratic Ideals and Reality laid the groundwork for the kind of geopolitical analysis that Stratfor produces today.
How Halford Mackinder Saw the World
In 1919, Halford Mackinder's Democratic Ideals and Reality was published, laying the geopolitical framework without which Stratfor might not exist today. It's a book that resonates with Stratfor Vice President of Strategic Analysis Rodger Baker as well as with his guest, historian and author Dr. Jeremi Suri, who discuss the book and the lessons it still offers on the relationship between geography, politics and society.

Season's Greetings from Stratfor
I'd like to first take this opportunity to thank you and our readers around the world. As we approach the end of the year, it is usually a time for all of us to reflect on the past and look forward to the future. Over the last few years, geopolitics (and the associated concept of geopolitical risk) has become quite the common buzzword in many circles, especially as people try to comprehend the shift in the international system we are all now witnessing. For us this is not new -- it has been our mission for over two decades. As we discuss in our 2019 Annual Forecast, the path forward will not be a straight line, but if you know how to focus on the horizon and not just the next few steps ahead, you will never be lost. This is the core of all of our work -- our assessment of

Trump and the WTO's Uncertain Future
U.S. President Donald Trump has his guns trained on China today, but a bigger war is brewing at the World Trade Organization -- where the future of the global trade system is at stake. For the past two years, the United States has blocked new appointments to the WTO's Appellate Body, the organization's de facto supreme court over trade disputes. And unless new appointments are made by Dec. 10, 2019, the body's membership will fall below the number needed to rule on cases. In effect, the United States is threatening to sideline the WTO's crowning achievement -- a strong dispute-resolution mechanism -- giving the rest of the world just one year to offer concessions on reform to the United States, to seek other options or to face a world where the mechanism disintegrates. With the ascendance of a new global power -- China -- the Trump administration may have already decided
