Is America fated to decline as a great power? Can it recover?

Foreign policy expert Andrew Imbrie joined us in conversation with former White House communications director Jen Psaki to weigh in on exactly these questions. With absorbing insight from his book Power on the Precipice: The Six Choices America Faces in a Turbulent World, Andrew introduced an essential guide to renewing American leadership. Though it may seem as though the United States is either destined for continued dominance or doomed to irreversible decline, Imbrie argued that instead the US must adapt to changing global dynamics and compete more wisely. Join Imbrie as he provides a road map for bolstering American leadership in an era of turbulence abroad and deepening polarization at home.

Andrew Imbrie is a senior fellow at Georgetown University’s Center for Security and Emerging Technology. He served as a speechwriter and advisor to Secretary of State John Kerry and as a professional staff member on the Senate Foreign Relations Committee.

Jen Psaki is the Vice President for Communications and Strategy at the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace and a CNN political commentator. She was formerly the White House Communications Director and State department spokesperson.
