In review, the Eurasia Group is a “firm devoted exclusively to helping investors and business decision-makers understand the impact of politics on risks and opportunities in foreign markets.” The website describes what they do such as political risk consultancy. News is also reported such as this EURASIA GROUP’S TOP RISKS FOR 2020. This report is very well-sourced and balanced. In fact, most reporting on this website is evidence-based in their predictions. They also offer commentary that is not always favorable to the current Trump administration such as this: Why President Trump’s effort to expand the G-7 is doomed to fail. This story was republished from the left-leaning Time Magazine. Some other sources they republish from are Bloomberg, CNBC, and MSNBC, which all lean left by our methodology.
