Frontlines: Trouble in the Red Sea, logistics snarls, China, and the U.S. election

It’s time for the Frontlines podcast!

Shaun Haney is joined by Jacob Shapiro of Cognitive Investments, to tackle the top geopolitical issues impacting agriculture.

Up for discussion in this episode:

  • Skirmish in the Red Sea — the U.S. is working to stop Iran-backed Houthi attacks in the shipping lane
  • Logistics are definitely impacted, but is it as big a deal as it could be?
  • There’s many players in the mix, and much to unpack on this one
  • Taiwan’s election is done. Does it make relations with China better or worse and why does it matter?
  • Speaking of elections, what about Argentina?
  • China/Argentina trade
  • On to America! The U.S. election set for November is going to be a wild ride
  • It doesn’t matter who wins, either way, it’s going to have a huge impact on geopolitics
  • The outcome of the U.S. election will be a major factor in shaping geopolitical instability and volatility in the coming year, Shapiro says
