The Geopolitics of Postmodern Parenting
During the two months I recently spent away from work to fulfill my demographic duty, I found that most of my conversations with visitors followed the same pattern. The talk quickly turned from the standard cooing over my baby girl to an intensive debate over parental leave: how much time and flexibility to grant new parents in the workforce, how to reconcile career ambitions with the responsibilities of human procreation, how to compensate for the crazy cost of child care and how to boost birthrates. As a white-collar, taxpaying working mother in the United States, I had become one of the statistics I used to pore over as an analyst pondering the implications of aging and shrinking populations. But you don't have to be a parent -- or an analyst, for that matter -- to care about this stuff. In fact, a lot of the global angst today over stagnant economic

The Killer Across the Table With 'Mindhunter' John E. Douglas
Fans of Netflix's acclaimed true-crime series "Mindhunter" can now learn about one of the special agents who inspired it all. As the FBI's original "mindhunter," John E. Douglas has used advanced psychological techniques to catch some of the most notorious criminals and serial killers of our time. In his new book The Killer Across the Table, he and co-author Mark Oleshaker dig into four real-life cases from Douglas' career -- all of which are vastly different, but equally disturbing. In this episode, Stratfor's Chief Security Officer Fred Burton sits down with both Douglas and Oleshaker to discuss the book, as well as Douglas' signature art of criminal profiling.

The Age of Splinternet: The Inevitable Fracturing of the Internet
In 2001, a young Jeff Bezos -- whose Amazon had yet to turn a quarterly profit -- said in an interview, "I very much believe the internet is indeed all it is cracked up to be." Now, 18 years later, the emphasis should be placed on how "cracked up" the Internet could become. The concept of a "splinternet" or the "balkanization of the Internet" -- in which the global internet would be carved up into smaller internets due to rules and regulations -- has existed for years. But we're now barreling toward a point where concept will become reality.

What Trends We're Tracking on International Women's Day

At Stratfor, we look at the world through a geopolitical lens, examining how humans' interactions with one another are shaped by their environment. We focus on why and how power shifts on an international level, and women's roles across the world can sometimes intersect with that endeavor in unique ways.

For the economics of childbearing to make sense in an age when working women are critical to economic growth, more rational and flexible policies designed to share responsibilities between parents are needed.

Gifts for the Geopolitically Curious Sports Fan
We look forward to the holiday season for a few extra days off, perhaps a chance to indulge in some leisure reading by a calming fireplace or in a bustling airport terminal. And, of course, there are gifts to be given, both to loved ones and to one's self. Toward that end, it is the holiday pleasure of the Geopolitics of Sports team to share our holiday recommendations with you. Our list is made up almost entirely of books, but we don't think that's a bad thing. Although these types of lists tend to serve up recent offerings, we've decided to take a slightly different approach, focusing primarily on selections that could become the building blocks of a sports-flavored geopolitical library. If you've enjoyed our columns during this feature's rookie year, we expect you'll find something below that stimulates, enlightens and even entertains.

The internet of things offers many conveniences, but if its component devices aren't properly secured, it will be a huge security risk.
How the 'Wild West' of the Internet Will Be Won
National defense is one of a government's core responsibilities. The pursuit traditionally has played out on land, over water and, since the 20th century, in air and space. But today, cyberspace is emerging as the latest theater of national defense as governments around the world take more of their critical functions and day-to-day operations online. And the internet is such a recent phenomenon that, unlike the other theaters of defense, it lacks international agreements and institutions to govern it. At least for now. To address the pitfalls in the current regulatory system (or lack thereof) New York State's Department of Financial Services will begin enforcing a new set of cybersecurity regulations Aug. 28. Financial services firms in New York by that time will have had 180 days to bring their operations into compliance with the new measures, which first took effect in March. The regulations are broad, requiring companies to have

The World's Economies Are Learning to Share
The World's Economies Are Learning to Share
One of the most profound -- and potentially disruptive -- developments in the world's economy over past five years has been the rapid growth of the so-called "sharing economy." The technologically driven networks underpinning the concept, also known as the peer-to-peer (P2P) economy, have grown so much that many countries are trying to add P2P to their official gross domestic product data to better monitor the sector's development. Recently, a P2P technology platform was at the center of one of the largest acquisitions in China's history, when Chinese network transportation company Didi Chuxing agreed to acquire Uber's China operations for $35 billion. Technological advancements, specifically in communications, have already brought substantial changes to a number of sectors, and with continued double-digit growth, the P2P economy will transform more and more industries in the future.
