Posted:     Post subject: The New Great Game

Quote:
The New Great Game is a conceptualization of modern geopolitics in Central Eurasia as a competition between the United States, the United Kingdom and other NATO countries against Russia, the People's Republic of China and other Shanghai Cooperation Organisation countries for "influence, power, hegemony and profits in Central Asia and the Transcaucasus".


Quote:
Many authors and *nalysts view this new "game" as centering around regional petroleum politics. Now, instead of competing for actual control over a geographic area, "pipelines, tanker routes, petroleum consortiums, and contracts are the prizes of the new Great Game".


The East may need more money to pull this off and Americans are holding are shopping less, but Africa may soon increase in purchasing power. I think it will be interesting to watch.
