Will we learn anything new from public impeachment hearings?

Are we going to learn anything new from public impeachment hearings?

No, but like with Mueller, you know, people weren't reading the transcript, but they did actually listen to Mueller when he gave his speech. Now, the question is: Are they going to take anything different away from the public impeachment hearings? And the answer is, yes. They'll take very different things away, if they're watching on Fox or if they're watching on MSNBC. Still deeply divided and still can't imagine senators on the GOP impeaching, slash, convicting President Trump.


What's happening in Bolivia?

Well, we have a president and most of his government forced out. Forced out because the military moved against him. But the reason they moved against him is because there were massive demonstrations all across Bolivia when he forced through no term limits, even after losing on a referendum and then had lots of electoral ballot irregularities. The left is responding around the world as if this is a military coup. The right is responding as if: "thank God this guy stepped down, it's people power." The reality is, it's a little bit of both. Maduro is still there in Venezuela because the military is still with him. If the military left him, he'd be gone. But on balance, it's good that he's out. It'll be a lot better if we quickly have democratic elections in Bolivia. We'll see if we get there.

How will Lula's prison release change the Brazilian political climate?

The answer is not very much. I mean, Lula's not likely to be able to run for president again. He is going to be very strong in his in his popularity and being able to cause more social instability in Brazil. But right now, the economy is actually doing a little bit better. So, the question is: What happens if the economy starts to soften in Brazil? And then Lula becomes a very serious brake on Bolsonaro's ability to continue to rally population behind him.

Empathy and listening are key to establishing harmonious relationships, as demonstrated by Callista Azogu, GM of Human Resources & Organization for Nigerian Agip Oil Company (NAOC), an Eni subsidiary in Abuja. "To build trust is very difficult. To destroy it is very easy," says Callista, whose busy days involve everything from personnel issues to union relationships. She sees great potential for her native Nigeria not only because of the country's natural resources, but because of its vibrant and creative people.

For the world's wealthiest nations, including the United States, the rollout of COVID-19 vaccine has been rocky, to say the least. And as a result, much of the developing world will have to wait even longer for their turn. Part of the challenge, World Bank President David Malpass says, is that "advanced economies have reserved a lot of the vaccine doses." Malpass sat down with Ian Bremmer recently to talk about what his organization is doing to try to keep millions around the world from slipping deeper into poverty during the pandemic. Their conversation was part of the latest episode of GZERO World.
