How do we make sense of the world today and America’s role in addressing complex global challenges? This question has created a new divide, but not along established lines—Democrat versus Republican, liberal versus conservative. Rather, the chasm is between those with very different ideas about how to manage the forces of change. Increasing numbers of Americans question the merits of being open to the world. They worry that refugees pose a threat to their physical security and immigrants to their identity, free trade comes at their expense, and global engagement is more a burden than a benefit. The argument that we’re better off pulling up the drawbridge is understandable.

But it misses the reality that an increasing number of challenges—from epidemics to climate change, violent extremism to cyber terrorism—are beyond the capacity of any one nation to address. It denies the importance of a U.S.-led global order that keeps people, products, ideas, and capital flowing with common rules, norms, and institutions. Go inside senior national security and foreign policy deliberations to learn how this debate over America’s role in the world impacts our daily lives.

Hear from one of our nation’s top diplomats why U.S. global engagement matters for every American and what we need to do to ensure its benefits reach more of our citizens. 

Every day, members of the President’s national security team gather in the White House Situation Room. Armed with the latest policy and intelligence reports, they debate options and make recommendations to the President for navigating a world more fluid and fraught with complexity than ever before.

For eight years, Antony Blinken was privileged to sit at this table, where he saw how some of our toughest, most urgent global challenges and goals reside squarely at the intersection of foreign policy and technology. What does the revolution in robotics mean for warfighting, or advances in artificial intelligence for labor markets, the advent of digital currencies for our sanctions regime, breakthroughs in genome editing for food security, or developments in distance learning for refugee children?

Yet, many of those grappling with these challenges at the highest levels of government are not necessarily technical experts. Learn how the country’s senior national security leaders sought to bridge the divide between policy and practice, innovators and diplomats, Silicon Valley and Washington, computers and humans—ultimately inspiring a new generation of problem-solvers to join the call to public service.

To most Americans, negotiating and implementing international trade policy agreements is an enigma, which often breeds suspicion if not contempt for the process. Much is at stake for millions of U.S. businesses, workers and consumers. Demystifying the policymaking process, the institutions, the politics and the interrelationships among the stakeholders, both within the U.S. and our trading partners abroad, is essential to gain a better understanding of what are the benefits as well as the costs of various trade initiatives—past, present and prospective. With the overwhelming majority of the world’s customers located outside the U.S.—if not outside most advanced countries—trade is hardly only important to large businesses: small and medium-sized companies need to develop a strong understanding of international trade rules and opportunities in order to succeed in a global marketplace. How is trade policy actually developed in the U.S.? Who are the key parties that influence how those decisions are crafted?  How likely will a change in presidential administration engender a shift in the stance of U.S. trade policy in such a way that there could be profound impacts on companies, workers and consumers—not just in the U.S. but also throughout the world? What are the indicators to look for when trying to determine which direction trade policy is headed—particularly with a change of administrations in 2017? A former senior-level trade negotiator in both the Bush (41) and Clinton White Houses, as well as a drafter of key trade legislation while a senior staff member in the Senate, Harry Broadman shares a ringside seat overview of the decision-making process in Washington behind recent trade policy initiatives, including the negotiation of NAFTA and the WTO. He also highlights the trade challenges of the future, with respect to China and other major trading powers, and offers his insights on effective ways to take advantage (and avoid the pitfalls) of trade agreements as businesses operate abroad.

Corruption is one of the most pervasive and pernicious risks facing corporations, banks, private equity funds and other investors in the international marketplace. Not only can corruption add sizeable costs to the bottom line and damage reputations and brand images for many years, it can also result in very serious criminal penalties, including imprisonment and very large fines. Despite the fact that an increasing number of governments have been either strengthening existing sanctions against corruption or establishing wholly new anti-corruption regimes, rarely, it seems, does a month go by without the appearance of a news headline about a firm being charged with involvement in corrupt activities. At the same time, businesses often complain about the fact that because their rivals are not being held to the same corruption standards, unfair competitive advantages are being created, or that anti-corruption authorities don’t understand that for some cultures, certain business practices are not deemed as corruption but as traditional ways to carry out commerce. Drawing on his considerable experience counseling businesses on structuring corruption de-risking strategies as well as advising governments on the design and execution of anti-corruption reform programs, Harry Broadman shares his insights on the “dos and don’ts” and best practice approaches to mitigating the risk of corruption in foreign markets. What are the various laws, regulations and enforcement institutions both at home and in key markets abroad most pertinent to corruption issues? What are the most effective strategies for combatting incipient corruption?  What options are available to deal with competitors who are seemingly immune to corruption sanctions? How should a business’s compliance practices be designed and implemented? How can individuals or entities who are likely to present corruption vulnerabilities be systematically identified through due diligence at the very outset? What are the most effective responses to the discovery of corrupt activities? Which remedial steps are likely to have the largest payoffs? Broadman offers a window on the trends in the incidence of and responses to corruption in key foreign markets, e.g., China and Russia, and giving audiences the means to operate safely and successfully in the international arena.

There is a great deal of confusion around what AI is and what it is actually capable of. Beyond Human decodes the world of artificial intelligence from the perspective of its impact on the core competencies of an organization. It puts in place a roadmap for how one can understand the impact of an era when the human brain is no longer the most sophisticated hard drive on earth. It’s about practicality, not scientific theory. We are standing at a great precipice in human history. Its time to demystify AI and truly understand what it is and how it can be harnessed to propel organizations to their next level of growth and purpose.

Never before have businesses felt such excruciating pressure to compete. The go-go days of the 1990s turned into the go-sideways days of the 2000s. What’s next? While enjoying super low interest rates and riding a roller coaster stock market, firms have struggled to raise prices, even when their costs go up. China poses a threat but also an opportunity for new sales. Loyal customers seem ready to jump to a competitor. How can your company or industry survive and thrive? Can the Fed keep the economy recovering in the Janet Yellen era? Will Congress try yet another “stimulus”? Todd Buchholz, who led the White House Energy Strategy, will help you figure out whether OPEC and Russia can tighten energy supplies again or whether a revolution in natural gas will reinvigorate U.S. factories. Learn how the “scissors economy” opens up new business and investment opportunities. Today might be the very best—or the very worst—time to finance a loan. By “connecting the dots” of the world economy, Todd teaches how to anticipate the new trends that open up fresh opportunities for manufacturing, service and technology companies.

Jeb Bush (Exclusively WSB)

Jeb Bush’s passion for big ideas and his definition of leadership—being an advocate for big ideas that require big changes—led to sweeping reforms in Florida while he was Governor. At the heart of his success was his ability to inspire citizens, businesspeople and policy makers to embrace change as the only way to take charge of the future. Delivering candid and informative remarks, he applies his visionary understanding of the issues to share his perspective on the current state of world affairs. From health care and the economy to foreign policy and immigration, to civilized exploration of policy reform, Bush engages audiences with a unique outlook on a variety of the most prominent issues on the minds of Americans.
