Don't Wait for the Next War: A Strategy for American Growth and Global Leadership
At this Milken Institute Forum, Wesley K. Clark discussed his book "Don't Wait for the Next War: A Strategy for American Growth and Global Leadership," which emphasizes America's sense of strategic purpose in the world.
As a retired four-star Army general, Clark argues that war is a poor substitute for strategic vision. He instead advocates for energy independence, and further, making America the next leading energy supplier.
Will the U.S. rediscover its purpose and reinvent itself as a driver of progress? "Don't Wait for the Next War: A Strategy for American Growth and Global Leadership" outlines the smartest path for America in its role as global leader.
