Swif 2020: Geopolitics and the role of the West

In this keynote from Swif 2020, Spear’s columnist Robert Amsterdam delivers his annual take on the geopolitical issues of the day

International lawyer to presidents and politicians Robert Amsterdam will return once more to deliver his much-anticipated take on geopolitics. In previous years he revealed how unexplained wealth orders risk creating ‘a culture of suspicion’ and that Donald Trump’s America First ideology is leading the world astray, with fake news driving us ‘to the extreme margins of political thought’. This year, Amsterdam is sure to deliver another rousing speech with a thorough analysis of the pandemic, China’s global strategy, the true meaning of a Joe Biden victory and the future of wealth and how it is perceived – with his signature charisma and wit.
