Economist Ian Bremmer chats about Europe, Iran and more

HousingWire Editor Jacob Gaffney had a chat with Ian Bremmer, president of Eurasia Group, a global political risk research and consulting firm, at HW’s recent REthink conference in West Palm Beach, Fla.

The two had an interesting chinwag about international finance, ranging from everything from German banks to sanctions on Iran.

In the video, Bremmer put away doubts that German banks would do badly after bailing out yet another European country. He also gives his thoughts about a China-Russia partnership.

After a rousing joke from Gaffney about introducing subprime loans into Iran to bring it down (seriously, it was a doozy, watch the video, around minute 8), Bremmer commented on the effectiveness of the sanctions the international community has placed on Iran.

So what’s the largest risk facing the international financial landscape right now? Watch the video to find out.
