    Very interesting conversation. Not only is the military strategy conversation illuminating but the economic conversation seems to be more strategically important. Future power is always linked a countries economic prospects. I think that George Friedman is overly focussed on the physical capabilities that get involved in a potential political struggle within the South Asian Sea without thinking of what they described as the “economic throw weight.”

    Also, the issue of capital flight was an interesting way to see the internal confidence/dynamics.
