Richard Haass (Exclusively WSB)

International business leaders today face more complex risks and opportunities than ever before. They must navigate not only traditional business issues but also political ones, ranging from corporate social responsibility and climate change to political instability and backlashes against globalization. Haass, president of the country’s most influential foreign policy organization and author of numerous books, including an acclaimed book on management, analyzes the environment in which today’s business leaders operate, one that is increasingly transparent, demanding, and crowded with a wide array of players. He draws on his experience at the top levels of government and working with business to offer lessons on how business can both meet challenges and seize opportunities in a global world.

Over the last two decades, dynamic, integrated supply chains have developed across North America tightly linking the three major economies in ways that are mutually beneficial. America’s original NAFTA negotiator explains how our collaboration has made the region the most competitive in the world. We don’t simply sell to each other, we make things together. Forty percent of what the United States imports from Mexico consists of U.S. content, and 25 percent of imports from Canada contain U.S. content. It is in our national interest to build on the vibrant commercial connections that have developed over the past two decades – and an updated NAFTA is critical to that effort. The former U.S. Trade Representative shares the winning recipe on how to move ahead with the issues that will make a positive difference for businesses, large and small, make workers more secure, and build on a vital North American partnership.

America’s political rhetoric is increasingly heated and hostile to trade, but turning inward would be catastrophic to U.S. interests.  Trade has been an engine of growth for the United States that has strengthened the economies of our partners and allies, lifted billions out of poverty, and brought the world closer together on a range of important policy issues. While educating the public about the economic, development and security benefits of trade is critical, our leaders must also launch programs to create jobs for those whom trade has not necessarily brought prosperity, especially those in industries with rapidly changing technology.  Responding effectively to the deep and understandable anxiety over a rapidly-changing workplace is essential to building and sustaining the popular support to keep markets and borders open. As a former USTR and negotiator of landmark trade agreements like NAFTA, Hills offers a unique vantage point on one of the most controversial issues of our time.
