    This week’s episode analyzes the three most important geopolitical tends of 2016 which will strongly influence the coming year.

    The first one to be discussed is the stunning right-wing reversal of South America’s leftist-socialist “Pink Tide” governments and how the US has essentially returned the continent to the era of the Cold War. After that we look at the spate of setbacks which the US has suddenly encountered in its ‘Pivot to Asia’ and how China has spearheaded asymmetrical moves aimed at countering the American geopolitical agenda in ASEAN. Finally, our top story of the year is the game-changing progress that was made on the China-Pakistan Economic Corridor and how the US is pushing its new Indian partner to disrupt this ambitious integrational project.
