Let's Age the Salami

China and the United States are locked in head-to-head competition. Xi Jinping coined the slogan the ‘Chinese Dream’ as a play on the American Dream; the US says ‘Pivot to Asia’ but really means ‘Pivot to China.’   But for the US to compete effectively against China, we must lift our heads from this narrow US vs. China mentality.  China has a Grand Strategy of Salami Slicing characterized by the gradual accession of economic and military power in the Asia-Pacific. To counter this strategy,…

Who's error is this? The general level of the masses?

The Power of Tribalism, with Amy Chua & Walter Russell Mead

"In our foreign policy, for at least half a century, we have been spectacularly blind to the power of tribal politics," says Amy Chua, author of "Political Tribes: Group Instinct and the Fate of Nations." What does this mean in 2019? How can Americans move past tribalism? Don't miss this conversation with Chua and Bard College's Walter Russell Mead, moderated by Bard's Roger Berkowitz.

Climate Change, Intergenerational Ethics, & Political Responsibility, with Stephen Gardiner

University of Washington's Professor Stephen Gardiner discusses the ethics of climate change from intergenerational, political, and personal perspectives. Should individuals feel bad for using plastic straws or eating meat? What should the UN and its member states do? And how can older generations make up for "a massive failure in leadership" that has led, in part, to the current crisis?

Janos Pasztor, executive director of the Carnegie Climate Governance Initiative (C2G), gives an update on his team's work after a busy week in New York. In the wake of troubling IPCC reports on climate change's effect on the oceans and land use, what more can the UN do? What are the challenges of nature-based solutions? And how should we handle climate change fatigue, individually and on a societal level?
