Hamre: Washington a 'Giant, Self-Licking Ice Cream Cone'
Chautauqua Institution - Chautauqua Amphitheater
The U.S. government and private foundations have dedicated significant funding toward improving the wellness of global citizens, both in monetary contributions and research. What is, and what should be, the relationship of these investments to U.S. foreign policy? How do we decide where to spend valuable resources? What other factors affect global health, well being and economic development?
In our interconnected world these issues affect our peace, stability and security. In a unique partnership with CARE, we will examine what we know about global health and development, what we are learning, and to whose benefit.
Chautauqua, according to the late, great Teddy Roosevelt, is "the most American thing in America." It's also the country's oldest ideas festival. Since its founding in 1874, Chautauqua has attracted the likes of Amelia Earhart, FDR and Susan B. Anthony. The rich tradition continues in 2011. Speakers include New York Times' contributor Stanley Fish, groundbreaking religious commentator Karen Armstrong, leading foreign policy analyst Robin Wright, noted historian Gordon Wood and several others. Take advantage of this exclusive offer from FORA.tv and the Chautauqua Institution, and join the discussion as these important thought leaders address the most pressing issues facing America and the world.
