>Most of the world will collapse after America isolates itself, no more global trade, no more world policemen, wars erupt eveywhere>China, Russia, Europe, Africa India and most of the middle the middle east will all be deindustrialized wastelands with no access to fossil fuels, constant famines/wars and will basically be back to the middle ages >SEA may hang on a little but life will be severely degraded >Japan will conquer much of Russia and China and will have a large sphere of influence around SEA due to having the 2nd most powerful navy after America, allowing it to secure, access and deny some of it's sea lanes in it's general area. >Wars and famine will be hundreds of times more common>America will be fine, probably the only industrialized country left in the world after the collapse, might take over Mexico and Canada for the cheap labor and water resources. >Turkey will be the 2nd best country after America, might carve out an empire across Eurasia and the middle east General gist of the book. What do you think?
i look forward to this eventuality coming to pass in 2 weeks
>>182389807>Turkey will be the 2nd best country after America, might carve out an empire across Eurasia and the middle eastimpossibleEU will be 2nd best led by france/germany (white/white=good/good)
>>182389807retarded. zeihan is a fraud
>>182389892Europe is double fucked without access to fossil fuels, trade or American protection. They will be back to the conflicts that dominated the area for centuries the month after America pulls out of NATO. They will be the 3rd to collapse after China and India.
>>182389988eu has wealth, insitutions and shit tons of browns would do anything to move therefrance can demand esperanto speakers who can juggle and you will have vast sway of brownoids from latam to mena to sea going to esperanto schools while throwing balls in air
>>182389807Retarded. The biggest economy and sole military superpower with international reach isolating itself would definitely throw the world in chaos and trigger some wars they would otherwise suppress but to think that the US itself wouldn't suffer a collapse in itself as it would abruptly have to build up local industries that were outsourced again is stupid. They haven't imposed themselves as the world police for free.
>>182389988ever hear of green hydrogen
>>182390092hippie fuels don't work in real life, anon
>>182390063Here's a quote >The Germano-centric world, primarily Germany, Belgium, the Netherlands, Austria, and Italy, were part of an earlier wave of industrialization that predates World War II. Due to their heavily urbanized productive economies, there hasn't been room for children in these systems for decades. Therefore, the Germans, Italians, and others are not running out of kids as it happened 40 years ago. Instead, this decade, they will run out of working-age adults, with a full inverted pyramid, and the bulge in that pyramid for all these countries is beyond 50, already reaching into the 60s. This means that this entire zone will age into mass retirement and obsolescence, and we do not have an economic theory designed for what happens in a country where you no longer have children or young adults or mature adults, and it's all retirees. It has always been known that the German economic model was going to collapse before the end of this decade, and the question is whether something else, such as a trade war, an energy crisis, or a war with Russia, will speed up this process. These are the countries that will vanish from the world by 2050.">>182390092Le meme fuel will never work.
Are we assuming all supply chains will be abandoned? Or will they go on? Like do we halt globalization?
>>182390172zeihans demeographic meme is valid provided no one wants to migrate europe can get any immigrant they wantif anything places like turkey/india/sea/nigeria will suffer from tremendous brain drain towards europe
>>182390327I'd assume most trade effectively gets priced out at the pump.
>>182390327It will be over years but some countries will fall quicker than the rest. Let's see, India and China starves within a year without access to oil and fertilizers. Same for Europe. Russia is self sufficient in both but the chaos of all their nuclear armed neighbors, their demographics and the terrible situation of the country after Ukraine will still doom them in the end. >>182390365Like I said, there's more than one factor. Too much refugees isn't good you know. No oil and no gas means no machines and no fertilizers. And they border Russia... and are close to the middle east. If it's not demographics it's famine, deindustrialization, the constant european wars, the refugees, the collapsing economy etc etc
>>182390585I wonder how Turkyiv is not effected by those factors thoughbeit
>>182390407Then let's seeLocal unions will be formed first. Latam EuAfri Middle EastAll whatever you can think ofA single global currency will be required first? Say a new one is created. Then next step would be global coordination systems. I'd assume immigration will be out of hand for a while. Countries might just start killing any illegal ones.
>>182389807>Oh btw, nukes don't exist "the book"Summarized that for you bro.
>>182390645Logic IIRC is Good demographics and right next door to middle east oil/Azerbaijan oil.
>>182390585India might actually get hard hit without fertilizers but our food banks are still full all the time due to past knowledge. Assuming people don't go berserk we might pull through an year or more. During which that gap can somehow be filled domestically. And let's not forget milk and fish are in abundance. Tropics will have that one advantage. If we play it smart then we might survive easily.
>>182390805yeah not convinced, I will mig to evropa land of sex and wealth
>>182390836what about climate change thoughbeit can india or bangladesh survive it? I recall they say it will cause massive problems
>>182390873go away, you have Tvranic cuties and femboys, you have pleanty of sex already
>>182390645Good geography. Right between Europe, middle east, central Asia. Might get enough oil from central asia and ME to not fully deindustrialized, could get enough trade from the land routes to keep economy going. Good demographics. >>182390836India is so fucked it's not even funny. No oil means no fertilizers but also means no transport, which means that people will starve even if one area still produces more than enough food for the entire country. The food will rot before you can transport it. India has zero domestic sources of fossil fuels, they don't even have lots of coal.
>>182389892Sir we are white sir like us sir
>>182390913I'm only thinking of supply chains getting disrupted and no global banks for now.Climate change will mostly hit water first,since agriculture is heavy on water. So unless india invests heavily in desalination and pipelines,clean rivers we might suffer a lot. Heat: used to it. How much hotter will it get?So crazy climate is fine,were mostly immune. Water will be an issue. But can be avoided. Now coming to bangladesh,they might just start pouring in more. That needs to be dealt with wisely.
>>182390981https://commons.m.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Major_crop_areas_India.pngThat would've beeen a huge issue had we not been so heavy in agriculture everywhere. And I feel there might just be some sources of fuel domestically I really don't understand why it's not being searched for more.
>>182391193Without oil, you get subsistence farming. And both China and India have no fossil fuels. This is another Zeihan map, India has literally zero oil reserves

>>182391438https://www.rethinktokyo.com/news/2022/04/19/peter-zeihan-japan-future-asian-superpower/1650324647Zeihan has a lot to say about Japan. >Japan is the most technologically advanced society humanity has ever produced, and it continues to push the limits of what humans consider possible. You name it—automotive engineering, automation, mass electrification, battery capacity, supercomputers—Japan is at the leading edge of all of them, not simply in development but also application. >Japan has become the master of desourcing: shifting production to another country to serve that specific market (aka “build where you sell”). Doing so does far more than place Japanese products on the right side of currency, military, political, and tariff barriers. >It prepositions Japanese industry within the handful of countries with stable-to-growing demographics (and thus stable-to-growing markets). It gives the host country a vested interest in protecting industrial and energy input supply chains that indirectly benefit Japan.>Japan…has four aircraft carrier battle groups that can make it that far. The point is less that the Japanese would use carriers for convoy duty, and more that the Japanese could scrub Chinese naval power out of existence from Hormuz to Malacca with a minimum of fuss. >In a shooting war, the only tankers that reach East Asia are the ones the Japanese let through. Even worse (for the Chinese), the Japanese only have one-third of China’s oil import requirements, and Japan will have the option of sourcing fuels from the Western Hemisphere to boot.
>>182391663>and Japan will have the option of sourcing fuels from the Western Hemisphere to boot.And Europe doesn't?
>>182391663I like japan but this is ridiculous, they copied everything from the chinese and europeans and will keep on doing it.What's the nationality of the guy who wrote this?
>>182389807Two more weeks
>>182390981>>182391663do your finance/banker friends really think that this shithole will rise?
>>182391842>>182391902>Japan doesn’t only build but also designs its own naval vessels and has since the 1880s. Japan’s navy is easily the second-most powerful expeditionary force in the world…the entire Japanese fleet is blue-water capable. >Few countries on Earth have as positive a relationship with all sides of the Persian Gulf as Japan does. Japan’s status as one of the very few countries of the world that can bring naval power to bear in the Persian Gulf will induce the region’s quarrelling countries to take any requests from Tokyo very seriously. Japan has the 2nd most powerful navy after America, that's why they can still have access to the sea lanes and oil retard, it's literally right there in the article. Not to mention good relations with the ME, something that Europe will likely not have once the collapse happens.
>>182392016Sir we're not white sirs we cannot rise sirs
>>182391347Hmm. I went through docs of ongc. Reserve oil is present. Main problem is that most oil that is being found is offshore. >>182391659I'd have to read it to understand. Why would removal of us disrupt indian climate?If everything goes south we just eat animal for a while.Wood will give fire. Transportation will be limited to supply of goods mostly. Electricity rationed . We already have huge solar power farms in working
>>182392089You moron, Unlike Russia, Japan has no natural resources, and if they start waging war on their neighbors then the world will stop trading with them.
>>182391663Being a book author doesn't mean being intelligent. Anyone can be an author if they wanted it and had money.
>>182389807ooga booga pls send aid semen we're starving
>>182392155The trade has already stopped retard, that's the entire point of the book. Japan can easily get the resources it needs via trade, conquering China/Russia since it has the 2nd most powerful navy after America. It can keep some sea lanes open and free of piracy, go and read the article in full, or the book. >>182392159Zeihan also has a PHD, worked with CIA, worked at a multi-million dollar cosulting agency as vice president, has multiple new york's best seller books and gives talks/advice to CEOs and heads of state
>>182392345>Zeihan also has a PHD, worked with CIA, worked at a multi-million dollar cosulting agency as vice president, has multiple new york's best seller books and gives talks/advice to CEOs and heads of stateHey Zeihan. You fallen on some hard times huh?
>>182390836>>182391193It's been a year since I read it, but I remember that Zeihan talked about this in the book actually. Basically because India's agriculture is still so labor intensive, and still so youthful, India can survive for at least a couple years without oil/fertilizer (unlike China) by simply throwing cheap labor at the problem. Still the whole decrease in quality of life, but not immediate starvation
>>182392345You're dumb beyond belief, China and Russia navy easily surpasses Japan's modern navy, not to mention they would rain missiles on them until nothing is left.
>>182392144India also has no good wind or solar sites. The entire country is cursed, here's another Zeihan map for you. There's barely any blue, dark or light green over India. And you really think you can sustain a billion people on animals alone? What do you think animals eat? And pls, if you're resorting to burning wood instead of coal/oil, you have already collapsed back to the iron ageAnd regarding climate, how do you think a disruption in the monsoon cycle will affect India?
>>182392089>that's why they can still have access to the sea lanes and oil retardI wasn't asking about Middle east. Fine I get that even though EU doesn't even need blue ocean navy to get there as Mediterranean is a big puddle some shitflinging will stop oil. Who is going to pirate in the middle of Atlantic ocean? Also, book, IIRC was written before US allowed its oil to be exported, but obviously after they started pumping enough to cover needs. There is literally nothing that would stop EU from buying oil from western hemisphere (unless oil producing countries collapse first), because the only power there that can take on even French fleet is US. Which would be one of the powers that export said oil
>>182389807>Most of the world will collapse after America isolates itself, no more global tradeliterally stopped reading thereHow does that make even a modicum of sense? America imports significantly more than it exports, the world can live without their products.
>>182392462Not to mention that while their navy is at least on papwer very good, their army is completely unproven and very likely total dogshit, so good luck doing anything more but blockading a bit hare and there. But maybe theay can finally apologize for raping comfort women and ally Koreans who also happen have decent navy and actually pretty great army.
>>182392462>Japan doesn’t only build but also designs its own naval vessels and has since the 1880s. Japan’s navy is easily the second-most powerful expeditionary force in the world…the entire Japanese fleet is blue-water capable. >Japan…has four aircraft carrier battle groups that can make it that far.

Even worse (for the Chinese), the Japanese only have one-third of China’s oil import requirements, and Japan will have the option of sourcing fuels from the Western Hemisphere to boot.Can you actually read the article that I linked that quotes Peter Zeihan's book? Japan has 4 aircraft carriers, they easily have the 2nd most powerful navy, Britain and France are next, followed by China and Russia.
>>182392462The Russian navy doesn't have anything nowadays apart from boomers (second strike nuclear subs). Putin's been talking about reforming and rebuilding the russian navy for twenty years, but never went through with any of it. All parts of deep sea conventional naval warfare are beyond its grasp.
>>182392345Positions prove nothing. If you were privileged/well-connected, you can get them easily unless you are brainlet. That's society. Cattles think everyone is equal and seethe over blm/lgbtq/whatever and destroy anything. But everyone is different. That doesn't mean a bad thing. That can even mean individuality.
>>182392595>Who is going to pirate in the middle of Atlantic ocean?US Navy, duh.
>>182392440Yeah. Major population crash is imminent. >>182392572I don't get it. Is the author dumb?https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Renewable_energy_in_IndiaIndia is heavily invested in alternative sources of energy and also consumes it. Thr hydroelectric power alone can sustain a lot of places for a long time. Billiion people no. People will definitely die. Everywhere people will die if supply chains are disrupted. Animal like cows can just eat grass and other plants and deliver milk bro. Famines. Isnt it simple? But like I've stated,indias agriculture isn't extremely concentrated. It's spread along the plain. Rivers won't just run out suddenly.
>>182392138>>182391036shut the fuck up trko
>>182392812Even if we put Russia aside, China isn't what it used to be in WW2.
>>182392440They will still eventually starve. >>182392699>>182392812Chinese navy is a joke that can't sail 100 miles outside of their ports without catching fire and sinking. Russian navy basically nonexistent and trapped in the black sea.>>182392921Renewables won't work, they are a meme, Zeihan has covered this in detail. This is like trying to sustain a human body on one grain of rice a day. Despite still having access to food, they will still starve
>>182393046You're forgetting something very important, most modern japanese HATE war, they'd rather start a civil war than go to one with a different country.
>>182393126When global order collapses and billions die, do you not think that Japan will change their attitude?
>>182393046They already are. Just look at the data. I mean it's working it's not hypothesis but real. This thread has got me reading entire livestock,milk production ,forestry and all that of india. Cow and Buffalos will save us if we don't run out of water and plants. Niceeee.
>>182393236They already are, a good friend of mine works for a military tech company and Japan are buying drones more than Euros do.
>>182393022Yeah, if Zeihan is at all correct it means there's going to be a desperate industrial scale naval war of survival in east asia. I don't know enough about China's navy to give any odds, but it probably won't be a short war.
>>182393397Which means the most benefactor of this war would be the middle east and other oil countries, because both Japan and China depends on it.Doesn't really explain how Turkey would be the one to rise rather than Iran or Saudis.
>>182393236>Japan will change their attitudeTotally the propaganda of CCP and Squids. CCP had been using the propaganda to justify military pump up until recently.We can become strong if shit gets wild. But we love hentai more than fight. So unless someone pick a fight like America did, we won't do shits and we don't wanna do shits, even tho America keep trying to get us involved.>AHHHH JAP WAR CRIMEWhatever. We liberated Asia from yties. And winners like America/China made "history".
>>182393513iran>usa won't allowksa>entire nation sustained on neetdom

>>182392737who the hell calls japanese navy expeditionary? they have like 1/3 the logistics capacity of the royal navy and none of the bases. they aren't designed to be, because the threat is right on their fucking border
>>182390172He's not wrong that population aging is a problem but Germany isn't going to stop existing, that's just retardedGermany+France+UK+Belgium+Netherlands will all become third world failed states populated by big eyed docile niggercattle but they will still exist
You guys don't know, but America and the medias have been pushing us to pump up jsdf for decades.
>>182394038Holand probably won't exist anymore as climate crisis keeps getting worse.

>>182389807>Peter Zeihanlol, lmao even.
>>182389807Was he writing this in 1968? Good prediction then. Nonsense today, I wonder if this guy has ever traveled to Asia lolConsidering all the resources, manufacturing and cheap labor are readily found in Asian this is just pure nonsense. Next 100years are Asian centric give me rmb Will democracy collapse without usa ? Yes absolutely like communism, lots of recent examples of democracy hindering 3rdies from implementing hard enough policies to build a proper state.

>>182391663Ignorant delusional Japanboo author, I hate China and Mainlanders to the core but they are miles ahead of Japan, you can literally use WeChat for almost everything in Chinese cities while in Tokyo you need to bring cash. They also have technology which can rival the USA.Wonder why the US does not go guns blazing against China in South China Sea? If it were a lesser country they would but they can’t do shit to China which builds massive fortifications ik Spratlys which some are near the Philippines and other SEA countriesZeihan’s books are comedy gold in Chinese social media and is seen as pure cope by the degrading West
>>182394635You know what? Western medias are busy to brainwash cattles that the decision was made by Jap lolLook at this picrel lolWestern medias are now trying to get away with the compulsion.This is the way of yties. Lol
>>182395036As long as we jap were "hoping" the war with China, America can exploit us with the war. This is the way of America/west/y lol
>>182393046There are Chinese navy near my country who just patrol the seas near Palawan. This is just one of their patrol ships
>>182395177This, Americans are just exploiting us Asians, they want war but no Asian country wants it.Thats why Zeihan and other American authors keep making these books to goad for an Asian war to keep Western dominance forever. The last thing they want to happen is Asia uniting
>>182394095Good point I forgot thatI would say they'll just build bigger walls but once they're majority non white it won't matter because swarths can't maintain infrastructure
PEOPLE'S REPUBLIC OF BRAZIL SUPERPOWER IN 2 MORE WEEKS
>>182395177As long as there is an alibi that the decision was not made by America , America doesn't have to send it's military. All it wants to do is to send arms to East Asia like they are doing it in the ongoing testground lol
>>182395486They will do that first in my country tho, there are many US bases being constructed in Luzon to defend Taiwan.They will turn the Philippines into a desolate wasteland devoid of life and let millions of people die.I hate the majority of Pinoys who such American cock for green card, I wish we had more pride and kick the colonizers once and for all
>>182389807>without american fuels, world will collapse>america is energy importerWhy are they like this?
>>182395486>America doesn't have to send it's military.This is why Americans don't know what war is and play easy mode war and retarded US soldiers try to take back dead body and get shot and increase more dead body, while their children get shot in schools.

Btw china started increasing rice fields for the coming warfare with America's slave cunts. After Russia and America finished the hentai play where Russia reduces its criminals/anti-Russia-residents and America make money from it, East Asia can/will become the next playground. Listen Mainland Chinese and the diasporas. Ignore America. Just sit back and relax, or China will be fucked. Americans are retarded cattles who don't even know the country is slowly dying. They are baka frfr.

>the whole world will collapse except america>anyway just ignore our looming insolvency, failing banks and race riotszeihan is such a memeif i thought he had the requisite IQ for it, i would say he's trying to distract from domestic affairs

>>182396818No worries, we'll survive without McDonalds
Imagine mates. If America were world police, why tf America has been sending arms and military service to Ukraine without negotiation/intervention?

>>182399610what would turks know of dignity?
>>182399769we accepted our decline since 1500s, we know much more, Britain having a much slower decline (compared to other nations like France, Germany, Russia who crushed/had revolutions/massive defeats) fail to understand their time is over, that their empire is gone, that their demographics are at the point of no return. You are like ottomans in 1700s still pretending relevancy and power as if they were in 1500s. The denial is at absurdity level, mixed with a superiority complex.

>>182389807my thoughts is that the random man on the street is more reliable than zeihan because this retard has been saying china is collapsing in 2 more weeks for years and he has been wrong every timeI doubt he belives his own bullshit, it's just hype to pay books. Even the CIA probably don't care about him.

Mr. Zeihan seems to confuse the causes and effects. The only reason massive wars have stopped occuring is because capital has become globalized. This is indeed an achievement of America. But that doesnt mean we live in some kind of utopia. Wars are still being waged on in those places where capital still has not penetrated (global south).The conclusion is that war and conflict will always exist as long as capitalism exists. The fact that we dont have massive world wars isn't due (or a virtue) of America, but instead of the hability of capital to globalize.
