Herbert Meyer, former special assistant to the Director of Central Intelligence and Vice Chairman of the CIAâ€™s National Intelligence Council during the Reagan Administration, has written a brilliantly concise essay titled "A Global Intelligence Briefing For CEOs" in which he describes the four major transformations going on in the world today.
- The War in Iraq
- The Emergence of China
- Shifting Demographics of Western Civilization
- Restructuring of American Business
I highly recommend reading the whole thing for an excellent overview of what's going on in the world today.
