ANALYZING THE GEOPOLITICAL CHESSBOARD: IS THIS CHECKMATE FOR AMERICAN INFLUENCE IN THE MIDDLE EAST? 

 

Join Hedgeye's CEO Keith McCullough and Managing Director Daryl G. Jones, who will be joined by Yale Professor Charles Hill for a discussion of recent events in the Middle East and an analysis of the major risks associated therein. The topics being covered will include: 

  • What are the sources of the Jasmine Revolution? How important is inflation?
  • Is the Jasmine Revolution going global? If so, where should we look next for popular upheaval?
  • How will a change in Egyptian leadership (shift in power to the Muslim Brotherhood) shape U.S. influence in the region?
  • What is the future of the Arab and Israeli relationship?
  • Are their implications as it relates to Iran and nuclear proliferation?
  • As these events unfold, how will they impact global markets?  

Please contact if you have any questions. 

Regards,

 

The Hedgeye Macro Team
