A distinguished panel of experts provided thoughtful, substantive insights at the India Community Center here into Indo-U.S. relations that suggested that while the future of relations between the world’s oldest democracy and the world’s largest democracy appears to be very bright, it is by no means a given, and continued efforts need to be sustained to ensure the two nations continue to nurture a harmonious and mutually beneficial relationship...

Californians long led an idyllic version of the American Dream: lots of sunshine, jobs, upward mobility, home and automobile ownership, inviting ample space and tremendous mobility. Long a harbinger of national trends and an incubator of innovation, the Golden State used to be home to steadily rising standards of living, outstanding public schools and universities, and enviable infrastructure.
The modern California was built on an expansive and well-thought-out infrastructure plan. Today, however, that system is crumbling beneath our feet and the bill just repair it – let alone modernize it for the next generation of Californians – is steadily growing: some estimate it to be around $500 billion or roughly 3 times the proposed 2016-2017 total state expenditure budget.

Peter Robinson speaks with Sean O'Keefe.
