What We're Reading -- "Why America Can't Have It all"

Few American leaders--elected, appointed, and/or in business--think seriously about how and why the United States should act on the future global stage. In this article, Stephen Wertheim does a good job of outlining a realistic way-forward. Because of the article's realism and thoughtfulness, it's unlikely to be considered in a policy environment seemingly beholden to path dependency thinking.

"Going forward, the options are stark: the United States can selectively retrench and control costs and risks, or it can stick with global primacy and lurch from crisis to crisis."

In a hyper-connected and globalized world, has your organization developed a strategy informed by future scenarios and how countries will act in the same? If not, So Little Pains can help.

So little pains do the vulgar take in the investigation of truth, accepting readily the first story that comes to hand.
