Eric Schwartz discusses the importance of increased articulate conversations on foreign policy issues.
That while the United States will, for the foreseeable future, remain the world's dominant power, our margin for error is far less than it has been in recent memory. Geopolitical mistakes will be more costly; they will have far greater impact on our domestic economic circumstances; and - conversely - what we do at home on tax policy, monetary policy and spending will have a direct and profound impact on our capacity to influence the rest of the world and to sustain and enhance the quality of life for citizens of our country. In a nutshell, foreign policy matters, perhaps more so than any time in recent memory.
