GZERO Media, a Eurasia Group company, is proud to announce the launch of a new digital series called ‘In 60 Seconds’ across all social platforms on Monday 30 July. We have partnered with some of today’s top experts to bring fresh, smart, and insightful perspective on the week’s most important issues in world affairs, finance, tech, US politics, and the world of work.

Inspired by Ian Bremmer’s World in 60 Seconds, a weekly take on the top questions in global politics, we’re now expanding to new topics, five days a week, with these incredible hosts:

  • TUESDAYS: World in 60 Seconds with Ian Bremmer, President of Eurasia Group and GZERO Media;
  • WEDNESDAYS: Money in 60 Seconds with Sallie Krawcheck, Co-founder and CEO of Ellevest, one of the most influential executives in financial services, and a leading advocate for women’s economic equality;
  • THURSDAYS: Work in 60 Seconds with Adam Grant, NYT best-selling author and professor of organizational psychology at the Wharton School of Business;
  • FRIDAYS: Tech in 60 Seconds with Nicholas Thompson, Editor-in-Chief of WIRED Magazine.

Taking questions submitted by viewers, each host comes to us from wherever they are in the world that day.

The series’ exclusive sponsor is Microsoft On The Issues and Microsoft’s Today in Technology series.

Khant Thaw Htoo is a young engineer who works in Eni's Sakura Tower office in the heart of Yangon. As an HSE engineer, he monitors the safety and environmental impact of onshore and offshore operations. He also looks out for his parents' well-being, in keeping with Myanmar's traditions.

Learn more about Khant in the final episode of the Faces of Eni series, which focuses on Eni's employees around the world.

On his first day as president, Joe Biden signed a remarkable series of executive orders. Boom! The US rejoins the Paris Climate Accord. Bang! The United States rejoins the World Health Organization. Pow! No more ban on immigration from many Muslim-majority countries. Biden's press secretary reminded reporters later in the day that all these orders merely begin complex processes that take time, but the impact is still dramatic.

If you lead a country allied with the US, or you're simply hoping for some specific commitment or clear and credible statement of purpose from the US government, you might feel a little dizzy today. The sight of an American president (Barack Obama) signing his name, of the next president (Donald Trump) erasing that name from the same legislation/bill, and then the following president (Biden) signing it back into law again will raise deep concerns over the long-term reliability of the world's still-most-powerful nation.

Renowned tech journalist Kara Swisher has no doubt that social media companies bear responsibility for the January 6th pro-Trump riots at the Capitol and will likely be complicit in the civil unrest that may continue well into Biden's presidency. It's no surprise, she argues, that the online rage that platforms like Facebook and Twitter intentionally foment translated into real-life violence. But if Silicon Valley's current role in our national discourse is untenable, how can the US government rein it in? That, it turns out, is a bit more complicated. Swisher joins Ian Bremmer on GZERO World.

"There needs to be a dramatic and deep reduction in the amount of debt on the poorest countries. That's clear." As the world's poorest nations struggle to recover from a devastating pandemic, World Bank President David Malpass argues that freeing them of much of their debt will be key. His conversation with Ian Bremmer is part of the latest episode of GZERO World.
