Barnett has joined the firm as a principal business strategist as he is set to publish his latest title, America’s New Map, Restoring Our Global Leadership in an Era of Climate Change and Demographic Collapse. Barnett will speak about the themes in his new book and offer advisory and scenario planning engagements to share how the converging forces of geopolitical realities, climate change, technology, and demographic shifts will affect every field and industry over the next century.
Barnett is a leading security geopolitical strategist and New York Times bestselling author, who has worked in U.S. national security circles since the end of the Cold War.

America’s New Map, analyzes the current geopolitical landscape and decodes the complexities of today’s world through seven global research-based phenomena, which are illustrated by Throughline’s graphic artist, Jim Nuttle, and will serve as tools for leaders. These seven themes, called ‘throughlines’ in the book, visually articulate the interplay between the complex global dynamics that will shape the decades to come.
“In order to win tomorrow, America needs a new vision to tackle the uncertainties of our shared future,” said Barnett. “Throughline understood how to visualize these ideas in an impactful and thought-provoking way. I look forward to the year ahead as we collaborate and – hopefully – inspire action from leaders across the world.”
