Xi Jinping's Zero-COVID Reversal | Top Risks 2023 | GZERO Media

If Xi Jinping had a theme song in China right now, for Eurasia Group analyst Anna Ashton it would be Canadian rapper Drake's "0 to 100." That's pretty much how fast he reversed course on zero-COVID.

And that explains why "Maximum Xi" — one man with total control over China — is Eurasia Group's No. 2 geopolitical risk for 2023.

The risk basically boils down to "maximum impunity and maximum potential mistakes," Ashton noted in a GZERO Live conversation about Eurasia Group's Top Risks 2023 report. In other words, China's leader is so powerful he won't be blamed for anything, even if he messes up badly.

Ian Explains: Nuclear Fusion | GZERO World

Everyone is very excited these days about nuclear fusion. But what is it?

In very simple terms: a thermonuclear reaction that actually creates more energy than it requires, , Ian Bremmer explains on GZERO World.

That's what a bunch of US scientists pulled off a month ago. It lasted ... a few trillionths of a second.

North Korea On A Nuclear Rampage, Says IAEA Chief | GZERO World

North Korea was definitely the original gangster of nuclear proliferation. But now it freaks us out more about the size of its atomic arsenal than the fact it has nukes.

The North Koreans are not backing down, International Atomic Energy Agency chief Rafael Grossi tells Ian Bremmer on GZERO World.

Grossi recently visited South Korea, where he discussed the North's plans to acquire more nuclear weapons. He says that although North Korea kicked out IAEA inspectors in 2009, he has a pretty good idea of what Pyongyang is up to.

Russian Unpredictability & Finland's Border Threat | Alexander Stubb | GZERO World

Finland isn't taking its eastern neighbor for granted. Yes, that means you, Russia.

Indeed, the Finns don't one of Europe's largest standing armies to defend themselves against Sweden, former PM Alexander Stubb tells Ian Bremmer on GZERO World, on the ground in Davos.

“If you have a 1,340-kilometer border with Russia, you always have be concerned because, as we can see, Russia is quite unpredictable,” he explains.

UN Official: Security Council Is “Dysfunctional” - But UN Is Not | GZERO World

Volker Türk, the new UN High Commissioner for Human Rights is surprisingly candid about one of his organization's most famous shortcomings.

The Security Council, which includes Russia as a permanent member, is "dysfunctional" on Ukraine, while the General Assembly has seen a sort of revival in how much it's been able to help the country.

In a GZERO World interview on the ground in Davos, Türk tells Ian Bremmer that believes it is critical that the Ukrainians, just as much as the Russians, abide by international human rights law. And he's been in close contact with the Ukrainian prosecutor general, who assures him he is investigating potential war crimes within his country's military.

Ian Bremmer Explains: We're in "Polycrisis" (& It's Not As Fun As It Sounds) | GZERO World

After a pandemic hiatus in 2021 and a weird summer edition last year, Davos is back in 2023.

How does the World Economic Forum describe all the problems we'll likely face this year? One word: polycrisis, Ian Bremmer explains on GZERO World.

That means many crises all at once, which compound each other, like tangled knots.

Can Sports Fans Save America? | GZERO World

You already know that America is getting more polarized by the day. Democrats and Republicans hardly live together, work together, or hang out together the way they used to.

But a new book called Fans Have More Friends argues that highly-engaged sports fans are less politically polarized, have greater trust in institutions, and generally live happier lives.

To learn more, GZERO's Alex Kliment met up with one of the book's authors, Dave Sikorjak, a marketing consultant who studies the motivations of sports fans. Where'd Alex and Dave link up? Where else -- at a tailgate in Philadelphia ahead of a game between the Giants and the Eagles. It all went great until Alex got taped to the front of a bus, but you'll get to that...
