Recently, the Hoover Institution Board of Overseers met in our nation’s capital for its biannual meeting, featuring presentations by Hoover fellows and distinguished guests, including before-dinner remarks on US security by former US ambassador to the United Nations John Bolton and former vice president Richard Cheney, in addition to talks during the day by Pulitzer-Prize-winning columnist Charles Krauthammer, Hertog Fellow from the Ethics and Public Policy Center Yuval Levin, US representative from Arkansas Tom Cotton, and US representative from Wisconsin Paul Ryan.

Hoover’s own intelligentsia added their expertise on a wide variety of topics as well. Annenberg Distinguished Visiting Fellow James Mattis, Herbert and Jane Dwight Senior Fellow Fouad Ajami, and Research Fellow Charles Hill discussed current events in the Middle East in presentations titled, respectively, “Reflections on the Middle East” and “The Sand Trap: Golfing America into the Middle East Abyss.” The John and Jean De Nault Research Fellow Russell Roberts bridged the the foreign and domestic policies with his talk entitled “Real Prosperity: What an African Village Can Teach Washington, DC,” leading into two more Hoover economist presentations: Morris Arnold and Nona Jean Cox Senior Fellow Edward Lazear’s “Economic Consequences of the President’s Policies” and Senior Fellow John Cochrane’s “What to Do When Obamacare Unravels.” The program ended with a reception at the Hoover Institution’s new Johnson Center in the heart of Washington, DC.
