by R. Nicholas Burns and Jonathon Price

"Aspen Policy Books" is a series devoted to developing new thinking on U.S. national security policy. This book, a collection of papers prepared for the 2009 summer Aspen Strategy Group conference, addresses the critical intersection of the global financial recession and its potential impact on America's foreign policy and national security. The authors explore the possible shift in global power, the changing relationship between the U.S. and China, and the impact on America's development policy. They also assess the capacity of domestic and international institutions to respond to the crisis.
With the generous support of the Gates Foundation, the Markle Foundation, and many others, the ASG devoted its annual summer conference to discussing the foreign policy and national security implications of a deep financial turmoil. During its sessions, the ASG explored the strategic consequences of the global economic crisis, and considered how dramatically changing economic and financial foundations might impact the foreign policy agenda of both the United States and other countries on the international scene. The papers commissioned for the conference are now available in paperback compiled by Director Nicholas Burns and Associate Director Jonathon Price. It is available through the Aspen Institute bookstore and Brookings Press.
