Nina Hachigian and Mona Sutphen: The Next American Century: Can the U.S. Thrive in a New Era of Big Powers?
Moderated by Burkle Center Director Kal Raustiala

[ Listen]

We are at a rare moment in history in which none of the world's big powers is our adversary. Nina Hachigian and Mona Sutphen, co-authors of The Next American Century: How the U.S. Can Thrive As Other Powers Rise, discuss how the United States should best conduct itself in an age of multiple powers. They argue the U.S. must allow emerging nations to become wealthy, and to welcome them into a vigorous international order to share the burden of solving pressing global problems of peace, climate, health, and growth. Nina Hachigian is a Senior Vice President at the Center for American Progress. Mona Sutphen is a Managing Director at Stonebridge International, a Washington-based international business strategy firm.

Recorded before a live audience at NPR West as part of the Zócalo "Public Square" Lecture Series.
