Robert Hormats Speaks at Center on Global Governance Event

Fall 2010

To ensure future economic growth, the United States must embrace globalization, said Robert Hormats at a recent talk hosted by Columbia Law School’s Center on Global Governance. Hormats, a top economic adviser to Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, emphasized the importance of international trade, asserting that the U.S. needs to partner with economies large and small. “Our agenda has to shift,” Hormats added. “Our priorities have to bend somewhat to accommodate the needs of other countries, as well. That, for a country used to calling the shots for a very long time, is an adjustment in itself.”
