New Geopolitical Flashpoint Between World Powers​



China in Focus

World players are all vying for control of the #Arctic. At stake are billions in resources and strategic holdings for the United States and its foes. In this special report, we look at the latest geopolitical #FlashPoint to arrive on the world stage, why control of the Arctic is so contested, and what it means for Americans if we fail. Joining us to help shed light on the subject are #BruceJones, senior fellow at the Brookings Institute and author of “To Rule the Waves: How Control of the World’s Oceans Shapes the Fate of the Superpowers”; as well as Rick Fisher, senior fellow at the International Assessment and Strategy Center.
