Anne-Marie Slaughter on Strategies of Connection in Networked World Kickass News

    • Society & Culture

Dr. Anne-Marie Slaughter, president of the New America Foundation and former director of the State Department Office of Policy Planning discusses her new book The Chessboard and the Web: Strategies of Connection in a Networked World. She talks about the old model of Cold War era game theory and how the US needs to employ more inclusive strategies to deal with an increasingly more complex and decentralized world. She discusses how criminal and terrorist networks are using this type of organization to great effect, she talks about the divide between open and closed societies as the new capitalism vs communism, and how “America First” is terrible foreign policy in the age of globalization. She also discusses her time in the State Department, what she learned working for Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, and what might have been if her old boss was in the Oval Office right now.
