Stratfor Gives Compass Subscribers a Deeper Glimpse Into the Next Decade

Teleconference for Geopolitical Firm's Institutional Clients Will Address Key Themes From the Company's Recently Published 2015-2025 Decade Forecast

AUSTIN, TX--(Marketwired - Mar 3, 2015) - Stratfor, a leading geopolitical intelligence and advisory firm that provides strategic analysis and forecasting to individuals and enterprise clients around the world, will host an upcoming teleconference for subscribers of the firm's premium research product, Compass.

Launched in mid-2014, Stratfor's Compass is a premium subscription product, offering geopolitical intelligence and analysis focused specifically on the needs of business executives in strategic industries, including energy, finance, defense and technology.

In a March 10th teleconference for Compass clients, Stratfor's founder and chairman, George Friedman, will present key themes and address questions from the company's 2015-2025 Decade Forecast.

With a focus on major geopolitical trends and regional tendencies around the world, highlights noted in Stratfor's Decade Forecast include:

  • The European Union won't survive the decade in its current form;
  • Following the confrontation with the West, Russia will not be able to survive as a coherent entity;
  • The disintegration of Middle Eastern countries will spread, and with it, factional warfare that the United States cannot contain;
  • China has reached the new normal in its economy and will now function as a dictatorship as it manages its economic slowdown; and
  • As the only remaining global power, the United States will be less inclined to involve itself in foreign adventures, but it will focus on containing Russia.

"Our forecasts are a core part of what makes Stratfor unique, and provide business executives with an important forward-looking assessment of the global business environment in which they operate," said Shea Morenz, president and CEO of Stratfor. "As part of our premium service to Compass subscribers, we're pleased to provide clients with access to our upcoming Decade Forecast teleconference and give them a closer look at key geopolitical trends they can expect to develop over the next ten years."
