Europe’s Futile Search For Franco-German Leadership

by Josef Joffevia Project Syndicate
Thursday, October 15, 2020
For decades, France and Germany have been known as Europe’s ruling “tandem” or “couple,” even its “engine.” Together, they aimed to work to unify the continent. But, to pile up the metaphors, the French want to drive the jointly leased Euro-Porsche, while the Germans insist on rationing the gas money. As a long list of crises – from Belarus to Nagorno-Karabakh – now shows, the two countries are not following the same road map.

It’s Time To Debate The Future Of Presidential Debates

by Bill Whalenvia Forbes
Thursday, October 15, 2020

A strange election somehow managed to become all the odder what with the two presidential candidates appearing, at the same time, in separate town hall meetings on rival television networks Thursday night (although, here in the San Francisco Bay Area, President Trump’s appearance on NBC was shown on a tape delay an hour after Joe Biden’s appearance on ABC had wrapped).

H. R. McMaster In New Book: U.S. Must Know Both Its Enemies & Itself

featuring H. R. McMastervia National Review
Thursday, October 15, 2020

I first met Lieutenant General H. R. McMaster almost exactly ten years ago. In the fall of 2010, I was working on the Iran desk in the office of the undersecretary of defense for policy, and General McMaster was heading up a new Pentagon unit charged with rooting out the rampant corruption in Afghanistan that was undermining the U.S. war effort in that country. We scheduled a video teleconference call to see whether I might be a good fit for his team in Kabul.

Cooperation, Competition, Or Confrontation

Tuesday, October 13, 2020

The 21st century has not started well for the United States: two big recessions, rising inequality, mishandled pandemic, racial and social strife, deeply conflicted politics, receding global reputation and power. All of that has global consequences in a world that is predicated—for better or worse—on U.S. leadership. Are there any reasons to expect those trends to change?

Remarks At The Hoover Institution

mentioning John B. Taylor, Hoover Institutionvia Federal Reserve
Wednesday, October 14, 2020

I want to thank John Taylor and the Hoover Institution for inviting me to speak today. I will start with some brief remarks about the current economic situation and monetary policy and then turn to the actions that the Federal Reserve has taken this year to help ensure that the banking system remains a source of strength during the recovery from the COVID event, the term I use for the complex set of responses in both the private and public sectors to the outbreak of COVID-19.
