Geography and Geopolitics

Right now I’m spending my blogging time writing up some introductory material for the blog and getting ready to launch (despite the fact that it’s already up, of course). However, this article was too good to pass up.

Robert D. Kaplan, chief geopolitical analyst for Stratfor, has an article in the WSJ on the importance of considering geography in thinking about geopolitics. It’s well worth a read.

One topic this blog is intended to explore in depth (for a blog) is public decision making. That is, how do we, the public, get trustworthy information, think about it, and make decisions based on it?

If you are at all interested in world politics, geography is one essential source of information.
