The January/February issue of Foreign Affairs is now online.
Inside, you’ll find a special package on entrepreneurship including interviews with Amazon’s Jeff Bezos, Sprint’s Marcelo Claure, CyPhy Works’ Helen Greiner, Celtel founder Mo Ibrahim, venture capitalist Michael Moritz, and Skype founder Niklas Zennstrom.
The issue also includes:
Nassim Nicholas Taleb, distinguished professor at New York University’s Polytechnic School of Engineering, and Gregory Treverton, chair of the U.S. National Intelligence Council, argue that political forecasters should look at how political systems handle disorder rather than try to predict "Black Swan" events.
Matthias Matthijs, assistant professor at Johns Hopkins University, and R. Daniel Kelemen, professor at Rutgers University, write that the European Union is not on the verge of collapse.
Thomas de Waal, senior associate at the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace, argues that Washington should use the term “genocide” to describe the Ottoman massacre of Armenians but also recognize the phrase’s many limitations.
Sarah Mendelson, director of the Human Rights Initiative at the Center for Strategic and International Studies, explains why the Russian millennials who will inherit Vladimir Putin’s political system won’t upend it.
