"Foreign Policy Begins at Home: The Case for Putting America's House in Order"

Richard Haass

About the Program

Richard Haass argues that for the U.S. to retain its primacy in the 21st Century, it must reduce its involvement in foreign interventions (both military and humanitarian) and focus instead on restoring its own economic health.  Mr. Haass spoke about these topics, the subject of his latest book, at the Council on Foreign Relations in Washington, DC.
