Geopolitical Alpha

There is nothing this man has not already done. Originally from Manhattan, he has lived in Europe since 1996, first in the UK, then Belgium, then Italy, and now in Poland. IE Business School Intelligence & Geopolitics Prof. Milo Jones has worked for Morgan Stanley in NYC and for Accenture in London, and also served as an officer in the US Marine Corps… Could this be why he wrote the book Constructing Cassandra: Reframing Intelligence Failure at the CIA, 1947-2001…?

Here Prof. Jones talks about geopolitical alpha which, he says, is basically intelligence analysis structured in in such a way that it provides a useful tool for financiers and the corporate world in general. If that sounds boring, he adds, it’s not, not to him at least. It enables him to spend his days pondering wars, terrorism, pandemics, elections, and all the huge changes that happen daily across the full spectrum of economics, and to focus on their impact on the business world around us. Put simply it lets him explore current events in depth and think hard about thinking. Believe me when I say you don’t want to miss this.
