„The American President is the most important political leader in the world. The reason is simple: he governs a nation whose economic and military policies shape the lives of people in every country on every continent. The President can and does order invasions, embargos, and sanctions. The economic policies he shapes will resonate in billions of lives, perhaps over many generations. During the next decade, who the president is and what he (or she) chooses to do will often affect the lives of non-Americans more than the decisions of their own governments.”
(George Friedman: The next decade)
Our organization’s second public event in this semester was a panel discussion on the upcoming U.S. presidential election. The aim of the discussion was to examine the election’s possible outcomes and its consequences on the current world order while highlighting the key strategies of the candidates’ campaign. Attendants had the chance to listen to opinion of experts in the topic and they could also ask their question.
