George Shultz, James Timbie, Adele Hayutin: The Emerging New World

Join us for a rare conversation with renowned statesman George Shultz, former long-time State Department official James Timbie and economist Adele Hayutin about opportunities facing the United States and the world at this unique point in history.

In their new book, Hinge of History, our speakers say that the world is at an inflection point. They argue that with advancing technologies, great demographic changes, and governance in disarray, a new world is emerging and it is still possible to make positive changes. They present concrete proposals for the United States to lead the way in addressing such issues as immigration, K–12 education, updating the social safety net, maintaining economic productivity, protecting democratic processes, and improving national security.

Come for a discussion about how to foster international cooperation, constructive engagement, and strong governance and ultimately create a better future.
