Moneyball America, Indispensable America, or Independent America?

Ian Bremmer, President and Founder, Eurasia Group; Foreign Affairs Columnist and Editor-at-Large, TIME

Moneyball America, Indispensable America, or Independent America? by The Chicago Council

Not since World War II has the world seen such simultaneous social, political, and economic upheaval—from ongoing discord in the Middle East, to a growing schism in the transatlantic relationship and mounting tensions in Asia. In order to navigate this tumultuous time, the US must choose one of three paths, according to Ian Bremmer. Should they choose that of an ‘independent America’ that renounces its responsibility as the global problem-solver; ‘moneyball America’ that defends only its strategic interests; or ‘indispensable America’ that deepens its existing international commitments? Join The Chicago Council and Eurasia Group founder Ian Bremmer for a rethink of America’s role in tomorrow’s world.
