When we think about people with incredible control over their institutions and no checks and balances, we often think of classic rogue actors like Russia’s Vladimir Putin. But Ian Bremmer, founder and president of global risk research consultancy Eurasia Group, would also include business leaders like Mark Zuckerberg and Elon Musk.

This interview part of a series called “The New World of Work,” which explores how top-tier executives see the future and how their companies are trying to set themselves up for success.
