The Red (Team) Analysis Society was featured in a very interesting article, “A New Era without Certainties” (Uma nova era sem certezas), by Portuguese author and journalist Jorge Nascimento Rodrigues, published in the December 2017 edition of the business and economy magazine Exame (group Expresso).

Among other references, a detailed interview of Dr Helene Lavoix, RTAS Director, around the theme of “The End of the Supremacy of the United States” (O Fim Da Supremacia dos Estados Unidos) was included in the article (see related links at the end of the page).

Among many crucial points, Jorge also stressed the importance of a little known yet most probably momentous change that is about to happen: the redrawing of the maritime frontiers of all states to include their claims over their extended continental shelf (save the U.S. as it did not sign the United Nations Convention on the Law of the Sea – UNCLOS 1982), which is expected to take place around May 2019 (read more in our “Deep Sea Resources Brief, updated 5 January 2018, created 1 June 2012). As a result, what we are certain to see happening is a fundamental redesigning of the geopolitical map of the world. Who will know how to take advantage  – or not – of this novel situation remains to be seen.
