How to Secure a Competitive U.S. Economy

Meg Lundsager
Global economic dependence on U.S. consumer spending is unlikely to dwindle, despite significant national and international efforts outside the United States to support demand and improve economic flexibility. Because that dependence increases U.S. trade deficits and threatens U.S. competitiveness, the United States should take measures to open foreign markets, assert U.S. leadership, and promote domestic confidence and growth. more

Nuclear Diplomacy with Iran: A Deal, Not a Grand Bargain

Robert S. Litwak
The nuclear agreement with Iran is a deal, not a grand bargain. In both Iran and America, the issue is a proxy for a more fundamental debate—in Tehran, about its identity—revolutionary state versus ordinary country—and relationship to the outside world; in Washington, about whether the U.S. objective toward Iran should be behavior change or regime change. This embedded status accounts for the protracted length of the negotiations and the sharply divergent reactions in the United States to the agreement. more

Shihoko Goto , Zheng Wang, and Tatsushi Arai

Promoting a Global Energy System for U.S. Security

Jan H. Kalicki
A surge in oil and gas production in the United States signals a new era of energy security. But the United States will not achieve an energy independence unrelated to other parts of the world because world energy markets today are inextricably interconnected. The United States should instead lead development of a new Global Energy Security System to spread energy development, make energy markets more responsive and efficient, and protect energy transport. more
