Prof Dr Gunnar Heinsohn has over 1,000 publications and is a Professor Emeritus at the University of Bremen. Four of his works are recorded in the Lexikon ökonomischer Werke (Encyclopaedia of Economic Works [2006]), which covers the 650 most important economic texts.

In 1993, he founded Europe’s first institute devoted to comparative genocide research. In his bestseller, Söhne und Weltmacht (Sons and World Power [2003]) he predicted the Arab Spring of 2011. He developed the first war index for anticipating the translation of extreme birth rates into future violence.

He predicts that the increasing scarcity of high skilled will lead to the mutual cannibalisation of the leading nations for top talent.

Only those who keep their best in the country, recruit experts worldwide and close their borders for the low-skilled will survive. Prof Heinsohn has taught military demography at the NATO Defense College (NDC) in Rome, and ownership economics at the Management Zentrum St Gallen (St Gallen Management Centre [MZSG]).
