Co-sponsored by Global Policy Innovations and World Policy Institute
In the two decades since the United States became the world’s only superpower, policymakers in Washington have seemingly abandoned many tools of statecraft and instead now rely on U.S. military strength as the key—and sometimes the sole—element of its global strategy. Yet economists see a world in which the salience of military power has been shrinking as greater affluence and deepening interdependence transform the global economy.
In Winners without Losers, Edward J. Lincoln contends that the best chance the United States has of ensuring peace and prosperity—for itself and for the rest of the world—will be found at conference tables rather than on the battlefield. Shining a spotlight on foreign trade policy as an agent for political change, Lincoln urges policymakers, the business community, and citizens to find a path to increased stability by forging stronger international economic ties.
