Go Home 2016, You're Drunk

Everything's falling apart! The breakdown of multilateral institutions! Anti-establishment candidates are popping up everywhere! Russia is escalating! China! Syria! Turkey! Terrorism!

What's it all look like in the long-term?

So hey honestly we get a bit tipsy in this episode. You've been warned.

With our beer, we discuss the terrible stuff that's happened this year, and ask whether it's part of a long-term trend or series of long-term trends. We look at the risks to the financial system, the international order, the environment, and safety, in the context of many long-term indicators like global war-deaths, education, poverty, health, and the Human Development Index.
