President Donald J. Trump’s international relations and national security policies confront a range of major stresses in the global economy and a complex array of high-stakes global risk and geopolitical flashpoints in Russia, China, the Middle East and Europe. The Trump Administration is charged with managing key power relationships with major political and military adversaries and the driving engines of the international macro-economic system. President Trump’s domestic priorities include renewed domestic energy projects and exports, review of current and potential trade agreements, repatriation of trillions of dollars from foreign banks, and the advancement of new manufacturing technologies. If effectively implemented, these policies could produce fundamental shifts in the U.S. and global economies. Can President Trump successfully identify and encourage capable partners to relieve the U.S. of its worldwide economic and military burdens? Can he preserve and strengthen the current international order by encouraging meaningful diplomatic efforts, and empowering allies and partners to assume greater responsibility for regional stability? And how will such fundamental shifts affect the course of the U.S. economy and related investment, business and corporate policies? This presentation starkly and dispassionately assesses and explores the Trump Administration’s objectives on the global stage, helping corporate executives, investment managers and civic leaders better understand and mitigate risk against the backdrop of political, economic and social disruption around the world.
